So after declaring that I would get to this Project 2 years ago the world had changed and I found a friend who world encourage me to finish this. So for starters I have decided to muddle my way through Dan Berard's (here)documentation. The following documentation is a copy exact. I would like to not waste time if possible.
The year is now 2020 and I have been looking into building an STM since around 2012. I was still in grad school and was not shy about free-sampling parts. That is when I acquired an OPA124U for this build. The chip has since gone obsolete but my tutorial (when I finish it) will reflect a replacement not the original. I will also be hacking around the preamp and spectroscopy (but first copy exact).
I fished putting the vibration Isolation table together. I will write a detailed tutorial for this very soon.
and I soldered together the boards to get started testing and hacking. I learned so much just building the vibration isolation table its a little crazy. Hopefully I get the Teensy code up and going this weekend. Look forward to reporting back.
