Progress Continues

I got an oscilloscope for my birthday and was able to get through a very important hurdle last week.

I spent the weekend laying out a new PCB, which should arrive in late next week.

Interestingly I’ve also ventured into gray market IC chips from China. We’ll see how this goes.

Don’t worry, it’s still not a bomb…despite all the wires.

      It’s a 128×32 OLED controlled over I2C. You can get them from Adafruit (http://www.adafruit.com/products/931), however I get mine from Wide.hk (http://www.wide.hk/products.php?product=I2C-0.91%22-128×32-Monochrome-OLED-display-module-%28-compatible-Arduino-%29) becuse the PCB is smaller and they’re half the cost…you do have to solder your own header pins though. Protip: wide.hk is also on eBay and sells the same OLED for $9.99 ($1 less than they do on their website)…you can also use PayPal, which is nice.

      With regard to the oscope, I’ve had the MSO-19 for several years now and finally upgraded to a standalone Rigol DS1102E for $400 new (http://ws-na.amazon-adsystem.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&Operation=GetAdHtml&ID=OneJS&OneJS=1&source=ss&ref=ss_til&ad_type=product_link&tracking_id=andreswebsi0d-20&marketplace=amazon&region=US&placement=B001VKCJ0M&asins=B001VKCJ0M&show_border=true&link_opens_in_new_window=true&MarketPlace=US)!
