Saturday was the hottest day of the yearso far, but not hot enough to prevent me from working on a new Dilettante module. The module in question is a Digital to Analog Converter (DAC) combined with a Voltage Level Translator.
This is a blog about our everyday exploits in all aspects of everything. From science, art, computing, engineering, playing badminton to even playing computer games. Just about everything!
This weekend, due to the beautiful weather (about 20oC, lovely - Ed), I begrudgingly continued with the assembly of the prototype 2 x 13 Way Mixed Signal Dilettante Board.
What a weekend to fall ill! I had the whole weekend mapped out to do this, then that, so by Sunday evening I should have assembled one of the prototypes. FAIL!

We have finally received the prototype PCBs, see Figure above, of the first product in our new Dilettante Boards and Modules range, which are designed to extend the usefulness of FPGA development boards and starter kits.
