    Checked for continuity, but didn't try to power the faulty segment independent from the driver.
    I'll investigate this further tomorrow, but I thank you and bluehash in advance in case I need the pcb.

    You might not have had a good start with your kit, some components like the inductor or the pushbuttons were wrong.
    But the extent of support that you and especially bluehash are providing is just extraordinary. One always gets a kind answer, often (or usually) with just the right solution.
    Thanks ;-)

    Philipp reacted to tonesenna in RocketFuel boosterpack   
    I attached the design files for this initial version of the rocketfuel. You are free to copy, modify or use it any way, although a reference to the original work would be appreciated.
    Prototypes mounted and first tests already done. The charger circuit has one flaw: the body diode of the P-channel MOSFET creates a current path that lets current flow from the battery into the state LEDs and even the charge controller's supply pin.
    In practice, we see both leds dimmly lit when the USB supply is removed. This can be somehow circumvented by removind one of the LEDs - the DONE LED, leaving only the indicator of CHARGE in progress.
    With this little fix in place, the battery drain is 170uA, well above the expected figure that I estimated, but understandable, due to the current path that isn't currently blocked on the pass transistor.
    Here are a few pics of the current prototypes:

    I put a post in my blog with some testing I did with only the TPS78233 and the NCP301LSN30T1G.
    You can check it out here: http://wp.me/p2T8F2-11
    I am impressed with the quiescent current of these devices.

    Good news! :mrgreen:
    Remaining parts arrived today. I have 3 boards assembled, except for the stacking headers, which I'm still waiting to arrive by normal mail.
    Since the sparkfun batteries are also still on transit, I am using an old BL-5B Nokia battery, soldered and soldered wires on it for a quick test.
    So far everything looks good. Both the battery and the pass transistor are running very cool (although I'm not sure if the charger is already in CC phase) :thumbup:
    It's kinda late so no pictures or test results right now. On the weekend I'll grab a few photos and do some testing.
    Stay tuned.

    Philipp reacted to adav in An Indian from Germany   
    I am an embedded engineer from India, recently got transferred to Germany by my current employer. I am passionate about my profession and get paid for enjoying my job.
    At work: I am a Firmware specialist working on PPC/ARM based embedded linux h/w platform used in streaming media projectors and smart displays.
    Currently I am working on TI's DM8148 ARM based SoC with high performance H264 h/w accelerator. This is an interesting project involving few latest technologies like 802.1AVB ethernet protocol for time-sensitive audio/video transportation.
    I spend most of my earnings on buying different embedded hardwares like Beagle/sheeva/raspberry_pi/wifi_routers/olinuxino/arduino/MSP430 etc..
    13 years ago i started with small assembly program for 8051, since then i am living electronics and firmware. My ultimate goal of my life is to start a company and help society to build a better world through technology. Especially in India there is a great need for automation to conserve energy,water and other natural resources.
    here is a small blog i started few years ago to share my hobby projects.
    thank you all passionate engineers for your contribution,

    i do not in any way think you're an idiot. I am familliar with the hilux , as well as the 22r and 22re. I drove and 88 ir 89 hilux with the same 22re but standard trans.
    Fortunate for you , the truck has rack and pinion. If you do not have to put in some extra effort (when sitting still) to turn it , while off , then you have issues. When rolling , every car is much easier to steer. Pre 96 would have had a larger master cylinder , and iirc , relied less on the vacuum assist for brakes. You never specified what truck/car you had , so thats why I gave options. I was under the impression you were going with something newer.
    And just like bobnova said. Depending on your torque converter (TC clutch) , your motor may or may not continue to turn. Rarely do I work on anything pre94 at this point , and when I do , its usually 30's , 40's , or custom (off road buggies , etc)
    Again , I too am new with the MSP field , but where I can help someone , I try. If you would have said what you were trying to install it on , I could have narrowed a lot of the information down. My reccomendation would still be a starter interrupt , and possibly a battery interrupt relay if you're really concerned.

    Philipp got a reaction from Tribes in How many 'lego-natives' on this forum?   
    I have an idea for an booster which can connect to two lego motors and two or maybe more lego sensors. Details on this are still in the very early design stage.
    I'm not talking about the newer lego Mindstorms NXT motors with integrated encoders and i2c, i'm talking about the 'old' stuff from the first lego mindstorms or lego train generation:

    Before beginning to work on this I just want to ask you guys, if you or your kids still do have some of this older Lego Technics stuff and if you're somehow interested in making these lovely motors work with Stellaris and msp430 launchpads.
    Possible applications are basically endless, everyone who had the joy to play with Lego Technic some time ago knows what i'm talking about.
    So, what do you think? ;-)
