Hey everyone! We're using zoom. Chat will also be answered on zoom (just easier that way), but i'll do my best to also add an abbreviated text version here
We'll send over a recording after the fact
Cool Mark, thanks. And thanks Mihir - I was just going to ask for that. And welcome!
please ask your questions and whatnot here in the hackchat, we'll answer them via video chat in zoom (https://zoom.us/j/93198290181), and try and add an abbreviated answer here in the hackchat.
Anything in particular people want to see/talk about? good practices on board bring-up? Passing things off to another EE or technician to assist?
we're here now! chat will be kept here in the hackchat, video/audio is in zoom https://zoom.us/j/93198290181
Maybe a good place to start: What is your board bring-up process like? do you do your own hand-assembly/placement?
Just got the Zoom client re-installed - I nuked it a few days ago
maybe next time, anything not needing a separate client would be welcome...
Reworking 01005s is a nightmare
Hello is this the PCB chat ?
Inhaled LEDs - yuck!
Knowing the design, resistance check, power, clock, resets
Reworking 01005s is barely possible.
Hi Everyone, I am the VP Engineering for Explore Scientific and the creator of the PMC-Eight astronomical mount system. www.explorescientificusa.com
@MS-BOSS - Trouble is, we can't do a live demo on the Hack Chat.
What sort of features do people design in for debug? I use 0-ohm resistors everywhere to hide my mistakes, what do other people do?
What software is showing in the video with the layer overlays superimposed on the physical PCB?
For first spin of the board, I try to put 0 ohms Andrew
@Chris Ryding inspectAR -- it's what's being demoed today.
@Chris Ryding its inspectAR software
Hey everyone - we're simulcasting on the Zoom channel now. Please tune in if you can: https://zoom.us/j/93198290181
I use DipTrace for design
TPs can be an absolute nightmare, I recetnly did a board with 500 TPs. but there was no way to put legend on for all of those, so they get lost super easily
@Jerry Hubbell Not a lot of people use it. I like it though.
Great to hear there'll be free InspectAR support in the future! What sort of process is involved in linking a board using the tool?
We'll officially get started now with a welcome to Mihir and Liam. We're talking about the PCB Bring-Up process today, with a live demo going on over at Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/93198290181
Suggestions of things to look for if a processor doesn't seem to boot?
inspectAR 2.0 will be free for eagle/kicad users
@amigabill check boot pins! (and resets)
How many layers will inspectAR be supporting?
@amigabill -- is it a new board?
And we'll be recording the demo and we'll post a link later
@Ragabash The layer count does not matter -- any number of layers can be supported.
Go for it! I did a little intro already
Have you run into any issues with board size or net count? Some FPGA and multiprocessor boards would definitely benbefit...
