• Mount with PCB

    Pavel Semenov7 days ago 0 comments

    Here is the second prototype of the fully assembled mount .

    As it can be seen mount fits pretty well with cartridge and PCB connected through pogo pins.

    I've started to implement code to control cartridge with ESP32-WROVER here on github, but unfortunately it can not be tested with real cartridge since my first PCB prototype has an stupid issues. So I should fix it... again.

    Stay tuned...

  • Cartridge mount prototype

    Here is the first almost successful prototype of the mount:

    It's the first time i deal with 3D printing and the second design I have tried to print. First design was really not so good as I expected:

    It's printed with FDM printer and precision is not enough for this project, so the second time I have printed on SLA printer with ABS-like resin.

    Second design fits pretty well with cartridge:

    The pins are positioned fairly accurately, it can be seen by the scratches on on contact pads of the cartridge:

    First time I have seen printed mount, I thought that many of the contacts will touch each other, but only CSYNC and D3 touches.

    Next try I'll fix it and will try to connect to PCB which will be ready soon.
