Re: Texar Prism clone prototype

I plan to offer the display boards with the SMD parts assembled as well as the PIC chips pre-programmed. Everything should be just wire and go. Once I have my rack mount enclosure I will assemble this into a real project and create my FPE design file. I need to spin up the input/output circuit yet w...

Re: Texar Prism clone prototype

A through hole version of the design is now in the works. The only board that is still SMD is the display board but the display ICs are SOIC which is still reasonable to hand solder, plus there arent alternatives in DIP. Boards and parts are on order and my goal is to have this built and tested in a...

Re: Texar Prism clone prototype

I pretty much go to Digikey and Mouser but Ive been all over the map on others looking for parts. Nice thing about Mouser is they give an expected date on inventory. eBay scares me for semis, not so much for connectors and discretes. I was looking there and everything is out of China and I see some ...

Re: Texar Prism clone prototype

And so it waits again. I was preparing to order boards and parts and over my vacation two key components with no direct substitutes went from literally thousands to zero in distribution. Expected dates from Mouser are Oct for stock and I am seeing expected dates from June that they cant fulfill. Its...

Re: iTead PCB EOL now JLCPCB

Im glad you pointed out Easypcb. I never found them in a search before. I might try them for my current project rather than be locked into a fixed quantity I usually get with Oshpark, and they wont be purple. I used to work for a local PCB shop here; I miss the days of harsh chemicals, FR4 dust and ...

Re: Texar Prism clone prototype

I havent posted any updates on this project for awhile since I've been juggling other projects that took priority. I spent some time on my long weekend to move this to something that I can actually make available. Over the past few months since I first built the prototype, I found that the IC's I us...

Re: The Corona Virus Hoax of 2020

A new study conducted by MIT scientists and released this week reveals that the six foot social distancing and limited occupancy guidelines made law in most of the civilized world Made law? Where? I guess not the U.S., maybe Canada or Europe. Even in the third reich of PA it's a mandate. Mandates a...

Re: The Corona Virus Hoax of 2020

The vaccine passport is a privacy, government control issue... (show us your papers)... This seems in contradiction of HIPPA laws and now the administration knowing they cant do it legally are hinting that private industry should do it for them... Covid has blown the lid off HIPAA in so many ways. ...
