Building the Raduino Pill

30 Jul

I got some time this weekend to start building the board. After a struggle with the power section because I laid out the board for a 3.3V regulator that I didn’t have on hand and a similar issue with the Si5351 crystal, I managed to kludge in other parts that seem to work. The Pill board is showing signs of life and the LCD display lights up. This week, I’ll start converting the stock uBitX-20a code to run on it.

      I get to work on this in fits and spurts. Right now, I’m very involved in work related to my day job, so progress has been slow. I hope to get back to it in a a week or so. The board seems to be alive, but I have to put some firmware into it to begin thorough testing and integration with my other mods. I’ll post progress both here and on the group as progress is made.

      Thanks for your interest

    Joe, thanks for your reply, I got the st programmer today and am all set to program the stm board when you release the software!. I am very pleased with your 1 hz/ “speed up” “tuning. It makes tuning much easier. Best Wishes, terry lynch ei3iz.
