Tested the forklift and tuned the PI a little
Added safety limits for the forklift potentiometer
Tested forklift code and fixed some things (a few weeks ago)
Changed board a bit to fix DRU issues for PCB fab. Changed upper dimension slightly
Changed capacitor package on the output of the switching regulators. The value was not available in the 603 package.
Changed font size on some capacitors to make it more readable.
Fixed DRC errors in reduced switching board
Preparing Julian's version of Scoutfly to ship out. Fixed a bunch of DRCerrors, but there are still a few. Nothing major. Just some spacing androuting angle errors.
Added motor code for forklift, and fixed analog and i2c code after testing.
Merge branch 'master' of roboclub.org:/home/svn/scouthw
Added analog.c for line following and linear pot
Most of the line following was copy-pasted from Colony 3. Still unsureabout prescaler, which used to be 2 for some reason but is now 64.
Fixed a bug in the switching power supply circuit where diode was connect to FB instead of SW for the 5V supply. Also changed an inductor value.
Made changes that Abe recommended:Fixed SHDN pin connection.Changed inverter voltage level from 5V to 3.3V.Modified PB Controller to have value displayed.TODO: Address concerns about shutdown timing and switch power loss.
Deleted library that was unnecessary
Added a new push button controller circuit. Uses new IC instead of solid state machine because there was no room for solid state machine circuit. Preformed changes that Abe recommended. Routed new circuits. Board should be ready to send back out to kwoo.
Added new switching power supply for 5V and 3.3V supplies. Routed board to include these, and switch.
Added packages to kwoo for diode, dd2pak for switching regulator and switch. Working on schematic for the new power system using switching regulator.
Added code for forklift AVR
twi.c and twi.h were taken from Arduino's library. forklift.c currentlyimplements i2c slave communication, but no motor control or sensor inputyet.
Changed library to conform with voltage regulator package. Redid routing to conform to new package. Add heat dissipation area. Still need to check that this is correct. Also fixed cap values for voltage regulators.
Merge branch 'master' of roboticsclub.org:/home/svn/scouthw
Added simple power circuit to the scoutfly reduced board. Using 2 new LDOs to regulate down to 5V and 3.3V Also removed the charging circuit, gas gauge, push button controller. Removed charge led.
Added forklift subdirectory to scouthw. Contains the schematic and board files for the forklift accessory along with a library containing the motor driver.
Added a new library with a voltage regulator part. I forgot to add the Name and Value so i will do that. I also added the start of work on the reduced feature set scoutfly.
Did some wire routing and part moving.
Mostly finished routing the regulator circuit
Made a little progress on the gas gauge routing
Positioned some of the components in the gas gauge circuit, androuted a few wires.
