Project Ideas:

Idea #1: The magic eight ball. Ask the magic eight ball a yes or no question and shake. The magic eight ball will then answer your question.

Idea #2: Automatic garage door opener. Approach the door and it will sense the car and open the door.

PDS for 10/23 homework

Thanks for the great work Chris! Your document definitely got me a good start on this one. I felt like we needed a variety of musts, shoulds, and mays, and there was more that we have discussed that could be added. Not sure about the marketing requirements, but I have another version of this document with the additions I made but with the original formatting if need be.

Revision 2 PDS

Super 8 board

11/05/2013 07:56 PM

First take on the board layout.

Super 8 Schematic Rev3

11/06/2013 10:25 AM

The ERC list wasn't updating changes or something. This resulted in several non connects. The only warnings left should be with the power pins.

Super 8 board Rev 1

Super 8 Schematic Rev4

11/07/2013 01:56 PM

This revision addresses the comments made by the instructor. However, test points are needed before moving to the board layout. Nonetheless, there will need to be at least one more revision.

Ordered Final components for project
Learned how to use AVR Dragon
Created a prototype board of Super 8 complete with accelerometer and Display and micro-controller

Super 8 Board Version 3

11/12/2013 06:26 PM

Current board layout and corresponding schematic. If you need to make changes to either, be sure that you open BOTH so that the changes propagate to each.

Super 8 Schematic Rev5

11/13/2013 08:44 PM

This revision addresses the result of breadboard testing of components.

Super 8 Board Rev5

This revision reflects the breadboard test results

Board Layout Rev 6

11/17/2013 09:55 PM

This revision reduces the overall size of the board and adds mounting holes.

Block Diagram version 1

11/19/2013 06:09 PM

This is the level-0 and level-1 block diagrams. I don't understand what he wants for the level-0 for the sub-components, that seems to be already covered by the level-1 diagram.

I need to review the Unified Modeling Language before I can add that....
