DI-145 Data Acquisition Starter Kit Developer's Diary
12/20/2010 Note #7 Revision B
Engineers are satisfied that the DI-145 will perform largely to planned specifications. The malfunctioning channel is most likely due to a soldering problem when attempting to mate the Atmel processor to a PCB with an incompatible footprint. Revision B will make the footprint compatible, clean up some other odds and ends, and provide a more stable platform to finalize testing.
The hope is that a second prototype can be built before we break for the Christmas holiday the evening of December 24. If so, and enough testing has been completed to provide another update, we’ll post that update on Christmas Eve. If not, then our next update will post during the first week of the New Year and we take this opportunity to thank you now for your interest in DATAQ Instruments products, and to wish for you a very merry Christmas and a healthy and wealthy 2011.
