Hi All !
It’s been a while. I was trying to sourcing components for the first prototype run, but it seems that things not as easy as it seemed first. I had a couple of shipments from China, which contained wrong or counterfeit chips, fake voltage regulators and so on… The issue is that sourcing chips from large vendors like mouser or farnel makes the whole thing unreasonably pricey, unless you make at least a 150-200pcs in one run. This is definitely outside of my comfort zone for investing money.
This does not mean that I’ll abandon the project (since I use it on multiple machines in work) but will not build and sell the hardware. However as I promised I release the source code and hardware design and will update them with all the developments that I make. Perhaps some vendor will make the hw.
The hw design and the code located here : https://github.com/EosBandi/OSDeluxe
HW will be updated to use paralell connection to the 2837 instead of I2C, code already updated to support this and working on a ratnest proto board
If you have questions just let me know.
