The PIC Programmer project is out the window (for now), as I was busy with many things (college related, mainly).
The main reason I wanted to do a PIC programmer was to make som PCBs, and to get to program a PIC. The teacher told me that there is everything I need (including parts, programmers and chemicals (reactives) to do that..).
So I’m taking care of college stuff, doing something I wanted to do, for free.
For those of you who don’t know me, people around the world should celebrate the fact I attend classes this year, with kumbayas and all the stuff.
The TEC 585 teacher (A class with boards, circuits, practical stuff as a main focus.. PIC programming, etc..) gave us a circuit which got no indication (parts values, or names, etc…).
So I had to “figure it out” so to speak..
The circuit is to be transformed into a PCB in the Lab, as a “learning by doing” thing, a month or so from now, with the teacher showing us all the stuff, a month or so from now (Things move really slow)
Meanwhile, I did the layout on EAGLE. I’m not very good at it, but it’s respectable. I issued a paper which can be found here:
It shows the different steps of the board, ripping routes, and creating ground planes, copper pours, etc…
It’s in french, though, as we don’t study in english at the university.
