Time to go again

Author: sgeorge, Posted on: 12 August 2018 16:14

Been a while hasn't it? Never fear, new revisions of all boards are going to the fab, I'm spending my weekend checking gerbers and double checking layouts.

So the redesign architecture is looking like;

  • Raspberry PI RS-485 interface board
  • Switch board (128 switches)
  • Light board (controls 64 individual RGB LED's)
  • Driver board (32 solenoids)

The biggest change from the last revision is to decouple the switch board and the master pic32, which is gone, the switch board is nothing but switches now. All control is done from the Raspberry PI.

Since its no longer the 'master' control board, a lot of the associated circuitry has also been removed and simplified.

This means that all rules code can now be done on the PI in whatever language the user wants as long as it can talk to the UART. It also means than switches are no longer 'direct', and now must be sent over the wire back to the PI on request.

      Hello there... :)

I just have a question. I am a web designer looking for new clients and I wanted to see if you are interested in redesigning your website or making some upgrades. I don't want to sound like I'm "tooting my own horn" too much, but I can do some pretty amazing things, not only design-wise, but with adding features to your site that automate your business processes, or make your marketing phenomenally easier.

I'd love to talk with you about some options if you're interested, so please let me know if you would like to know more about what I can do. I'll be happy to send some info and setup a call.

Thank you so much for reading this! Kind regards,
Landon Buckland

      Hi!

Newer websites out there are now integrated with features that make business processes easier to run for both the company and their clients. I'm a freelance web designer who can help you integrate smart features that a business website should have, as well as a modern look and feel. I'm sending you this message because I'd like to help you out with your website's design. I'm able to work with most of the major programming languages, website platforms, and shopping carts, and I specialize in one platform that's truly amazing called WordPress. Designing your site on a platform gives you an incredible number of features and allows you to personally make changes to your site in a really easy manner.

I do all the work by myself freelance and I never outsource. I'd also like to hear your ideas for the website design and provide you with a few of my own as well. Kindly write back to let me know if this is something you'd like to know more about and we'll take it from there. Talk soon! Best regards,
