Get your own motor pcb

Posted on Fri 09 Aug 2013

OSH Park now allow you to share your PCB designs on their website, so other people can download and order copies.

I've shared my motor controller PCB here.
You can also download the gEDA schematic and layout files. To use these you'll also need my gEDA symbol and footprint library from github (I should put this all on github at some point).

Meanwhile, I am developing the firmware for the onboard PIC16F690. So far, I've been able to test the motor outputs and PWM, which appears to be working well. I thought I was going to have to do all of this in assembler, but so far have been very impressed with Microchip's new MPLAB X IDE and C compilers. It's really good to see them supporting Linux at last - even my old Pickit 2 USB programmer works perfectly without any messing about.
