The yellow panel – prototyping utilities.

The recent DirtyPCBs.com paneling experiment resulted in a nice new addition to our prototyping toolbox:

the yellow panel.

And the yellow panel..  Dirty dirty DIRTY soldermask (check topleft)And the other side.

The yellow panel contains:

  • Wolfsom SMT microphone breakout with small amplifier
  • QFN24-to-dip adapter
  • Freescale K20 TFT backpack (enhanced Teensy3.1¬†without the bootloaderchip)
  • Freescale KL02Z DIP breakout with microphone
  • USB-testpoint board in USBstick form
  • 0.49″ I2C OLED breakout board
  • 3.3v MIDI IO board
  • KL02Z micro-gameboy with 0.49″ OLED, microphone, switches and battery.
  • A this-is-not-rocketscience.nl keychain

The general theme for this board is “controlling stuff with audio while having sufficient visual feedback” I will be soldering a few of these over the next few weeks to test out various ways to get light/motion things¬†synced up to music.

The microgameboy (screens have not arrived yet – they will get their own post once the hardware is complete):
