Update: The PCBs have arrived. All 109 of them. smiley-grin

Boy are they tiny. About the width of my thumb and its significantly longer than them. smiley-wink
Should be fun soldering. 11 components have to fit in to that tiny space.

Yeah just waiting on the SMD parts to go on the PCBs.
Should have some made along with all the programming done in a couple of weeks.

If you want to see the PCBs then go here: smiley

I have a *really* shocking ability to judge sizes from a photo.
0805 is freaking tiny. smiley-wink

I've finally gotten all the parts and I've got one board half done.
TQFN parts are a pain. Nearly got it first shot but cant line it up properly now. smiley-sad
I'll try again tomorrow.

I've got a whole pile soldered up. smiley

Problem is programming them now.
I need to figure out a way to attach the programmer without soldering anything.
Its difficult. smiley-sad

Copper finishing nails and a block of wood make an ideal test bed.
I find the easiest method is to place the PCB over the block of wood and drill _tiny_ holes through any vias/holes in the board and through the wood (use a drill press). From this I can usually bang copper nails in nice and straight.

How you wire the test bed is an exercise for the reader. Perhaps an Arduino pumping data into the board and also emulating an HD44780 comparing input to expected output?

Yeah, if you get these programmed and for sale, I think I would be interested in one.  Software Serial is just not cutting it for me.

Given his recent absence from IRC I think Cheater has been a little...distracted. smiley-grin
