Trying new chips

The nice thing about working with electronics is that many vendors are very happy to send you a fee sample of their stuff. So we get to put various components through their paces.

The problem is that it can take a lot of effort to do that. Especially if the boss forgets to order a breadboard adapter for the sample chip. Then the boss has to wire it up by hand. And that just sucks, but in a fun way.

This was no fun at all.

The Logan is Designed

We've finished the design of what will hopefully be our last prototype for our upcoming Kindle light. Since the previous prototype got branded after an apocalyptic movie series, we figured that we'd keep things in the same vein. Since it's a bit more refined, we've moved up bad-outcome-for-society food chain to something dystopian.

At any rate, we're thrilled to present our design called "Logan's Run", or Logan for short.
