Project name: EDUBRM   Summary:   Aim of our project was to create an open platform for teaching electronic principles. Our target audience were students of elementary and comprehensive schools interested in this field. The main idea of the project is to provide modular design. One "mother board" can be extended with a set of "shields" which are used for particular scenarios. During the challenge we created three example shields and one debug shield for our purposes.   Mother b ...
Hello Brmlog readers!   While Biiter and Stick are working hard on the software, and firmware, our hardware developement is now on debug phase. I found lot of things what need to be improved or totaly changed ...   I also  made some calculations to be sure how much money we spent on this project. Here are the results :   body, div, table, thead, tbody, tfoot, tr, th, td, p { font-family: "Liberation Sans"; font-size: x-small; } Part Value price 1pcs price 100pcs C1 10uF 0 ...
Another milestone of our project. Lady from a PCB manufacturing company called Sargon that his prototyping boards are ready. He immediately rushed for them and started to work on them ...   Unpacking parts from Farnell and local store ... and we are ready to solder! All of the components are SMD and some of them are really really small, but that is nothing we cannot handle.     Closer look at partially assembled board:     We hope that the next blogpost will a ...

Last two weeks we were familiarizing with the LPC1343 micro-controller and trying to sort our ideas out and also to get from very high-level project overview to concrete and detailed prototype. We made lots of achievements and in the process we learned a lot.   At first we wired USB cable, a LED, a potentiometer and an old Nokia 3310 display to the controller. USB cable is used for communication between our software and the main board using USB HID protocol. LED serves as an indicator for ...
During the past week we tried to figure out some details about our project, mainly about which technologies to use, come up with the structural schemas and so on. Sargon had a very concrete idea in his mind, so he started with his explanation to the rest:   In the end we created the following block schema:   The most dominant part of the solution is the microprocessor. We have decided to go for LPC1343 and we'll develop using LPCXpresso development board. The board is connected ...
We are a young hackerspace (around half a year old) located in Prague, Czech Republic. Experience of our members is wide and varies from electronics, hardware, programming, IT security to medicine and biotechnology. During our relatively short existence we already held lots of events with strong international presence, to mention a few: Mitch Altman's soldering workshop, GNOME Foundation's Python Hackfest or Frantisek Apfelbeck's foodhacking workshop. We also helped with organization of Polish s ...
