Three is Enough

A project log for ELLO LC1

World's thinnest fully standalone DIY computer - 2mm!!

Which assembling another ELLO LC1, I decided to push my luck and skip the six capacitors, normally needed for the operation of the LCD. It lives!! A second test - lives again! I am not observing any reduction in the quality of the displayed text.

Turns out, ELLO LC1 can operate with ONLY THREE COMPONENTS (plus battery, of course) - PIC18, LCD, and the reset button, which is important to turn the system on or off.

Just FYI to all who may want to assemble one of these :)

I would like to have a PCB like this too... Hope It is not too expensive with shipping costs... And they send It to Spain...

I *must* build one.  Let us know if/when you have spare PCBs for sale (parts too if available)
