I have now produced a 3D printed case for the battery hack for the protoboard to make it look a bit prettier. It isn't brilliant but after some fettling I managed to get it all to stick together. And, it still works as well, despite some rather rough handling as I squeezed it all into a slightly too small case - I'm still not leaving enough internal space for the wires.     To be useful as a portal prototyping board there really needs to be some sort of digital meter. I could just c ...

So, last time I managed to get the SQL Acron CLE-215 running whilst powered by an external power supply and connect to it over JTAG. This let me get blinky running but didn't really take advantage of the unusual feature which drew me to the board - the PCIe interface. Now that I knew I had some control over the board it was time to put it inside my PC.   Hardware My main desktop is a small-ish form factor machine running Windows 10. Luckily I had a slightly older tower PC that had much more ...
      The setup:   Ever wondered what to do with your old basic phones? The advent of a smartphone in last decade made all the basic phones obsolete. Even though they had good battery life and decent look they are less when compared to big smartphones which have big screens and lots of features. Even I had lots of these phones lying around. I did this project long back i.e 5 years back when I was in 11th grade. Here I did slight advancement when I saw this old pr ...

Why a Case Now Design Assembling Links to the previous parts Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Why a Case Now The idea of this Vintage-Modern-Upcycled-Modular device (wow! So long) is a set of modules connected together designed in a way easy to reproduce, as well as making partially. This first prototype is designed in the simplest way, using the popular Fritzing circuit design tool and PCB prototyping boards but aims to become something more stable with its own series of well-design ...
I am a 3rd year computer and electronics engineering student, single father of 2 boys so needless too say money is tight. One of the main ways I keep my head above water is phone/device , laptop and pc repair work. So over time I have accumulated my share of old iPhones and iPads, I guess this is 2 ideas and I may just give both a shot. Now being that I am a Student, Maker, Dad, Adult (with bills ), Movie buff, Music junkie and Avid gamer,  needless to say my data storage needs are immense& ...
