Thanks for the post - this project would make a very good hands-on workshop for DesignWest 2014!

Thanks for sharing this would be a great hobby project. How is ordering process. Is it smooth? I hope there won't be lead times other than shipping time. I am thinking to give it a try. What are the application where it can be used.

From what I can see you are limited only by your imagination...

So the board is the USB?

Hi Caleb -- so the board itself forms the USB connector -- you just plug it into a USB port for power and to program it -- is that right?

Boot Loader?

Doesn't the microcontroller have to be pre-loaded with a boot loader to allow the downloading of user programs from the PC?

yep, there are several that do this, like the digispark.

yes, once you assemble the board you have to use an external programmer to put the boot loader in place. After that, you're good to go!

Very clever -- I'd simply never thought of it, but it makes so much sense for a low-cost board

I'm assuming that you can get chips that have been pre-loaded with the boot loader from other members of the community.

This really is a clever idea -- I might have been tempted to go this route mysef, but I just started playing with the Arduino ... so I'm going to stick with that for a while :-)

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
