We go through a lot of prototype PCBs, and end up with lots of extras that we’ll never use. Every Sunday we give away a few PCBs from one of our past or future projects, or a related prototype. PCBs by Seeed Studio.

This is a PIC and AVR programming adapter for the Bus Pirate (through-hole version). It has a 5pin PIC-ICSP header and a 6pin AVR-ISP header. It also includes a small 13volt boost-converter power supply. A 13volt VPP supply is required to program PIC 12/16/18F microcontrollers. We though it might be useful for clearing the RESET fuse in AVRs too, but that part isn’t going to work (it still has a handy 2×3 ISP connector for programming AVRs though).

We’re giving away two PCBs this week. Just ask for one in the comments.

This is another prototype PCB for the USB infrared remote control receiver/transmitter. Unlike the earlier prototype, this version uses a USB mini-B jack. Unlike the final PCB, it doesn’t have a transistor to power the IR LED with greater than 20mA. The IR receiver is connected to a single interrupt pin, the receiver on the final version of the IR Toy connects to an additional interrupt pin with a Schmitt trigger for better noise immunity.

You can get an assembled USB IR Toy for $20, including worldwide shipping.

This is the final version of the PCB for the USB infrared remote control receiver/transmitter. This IR hacking tool can visualize infrared signals on a Java logic analyzer, record and replay infrared signals, and decode them.

You can get an assembled USB IR Toy for $20, including worldwide shipping.

We’re giving away two PCBs this week, one now, and one later today. Just ask for it in the comments.

We go through a lot of prototype PCBs, and end up with lots of extras that we’ll never use. Every Sunday we give away a few PCBs from one of our past or future projects, or a related prototype. PCBs by Seeed Studio.

This is a PIC and AVR high-voltage programming adapter for the Bus Pirate (through-hole version). It has a 5pin PIC-ICSP header and a 6pin AVR-ISP header. It also includes a small 13volt boost-converter power supply. A 13volt VPP supply is required to program PIC 12/16/18F microcontrollers, and clear the RESET fuse in AVRs.

We’re giving away two PCBs this week. Ideally these would go to someone who can help with Bus Pirate high-voltage programming support in AVRDude, or the Bus Pirate port of USBPICPROG. Just ask for one in the comments.

We go through a lot of prototype PCBs, and end up with lots of extras that we’ll never use. Every Sunday we give away a few professionally-made PCBs from one of our past or future projects, or a related prototype.

This is a USB controlled RGB color changing light. Ian did this project at DIY Life, a Weblogs, Inc. site that shut down about a year ago. Someone made some minor modifications to the design and had a bunch of boards produced, we ended up with a pile of the extras. This PCB is as-of-yet untested, you can discuss it in the forum.

This is a prototype PCB for an upcoming USB infrared receiver/transmitter project, it isn’t the final board. This version was used in our remote control Halloween pumpkin. It took several tries to get this board right, this is the very first. The PCB is too thin for a reliable connection with the on-board A-connector, but it also has a footprint for a standard USB B-connector.

This week we’re giving away free PCBs for the Hackable Christmas ornament. We made these for family and friends this holiday, but due to minimum order sizes we got twice what we needed. The extra ornaments are available at Seeed Studio as a $12 surface mount kit, and Seeed will assemble yours for $3 more ($15 assembled).

card-angle.450

This week we’re giving away free PCBs for an upcoming project, an AVR ATtiny13A-based holiday ornament and card. Later this week it’ll be available at Seeed Studio assembled, and as a kit, both under $20 (shipped). The how-to article should be out on Tuesday or Thursday.

We received and tested these PCBs in the last 24hours. We were expecting regular green PCBs, but got black, which isn’t a very traditional Christmas color… Would you prefer red, green, black, or another color on the final kit?

There’s some urgency with this project – to deliver anywhere close to the Holidays we have to order a number of these up-front, instead of doing a preorder. That’s a bit daunting. If you have a suggestion for quantity, or would just like to buy one, please let us know so we can get a handle on how many to order.
