    SugarAddict reacted to RobG in Received 2 Stella's, NOW TO DESOLDER THE HEADERS!   
    Done replacing headers, very easy job.
    First, crush the plastic, then desolder each pin one by one.
    Stacking header pins are flat so they are coming out pretty easy and without any damage to pads.

    SugarAddict reacted to cubeberg in DCO calibration   
    Does the 2452 come calibrated? I know the 2553 is supposed to, but I know the chips that came with the early LP's weren't calibrated. I do know that SA calibrates all of his before using - but mostly because he's picky.

    This Booster has already shown its face in viewtopic.php?f=9&t=3074 and viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2581.
    So here are some more pictures and the schematics. Nothing fancy, but my first PCB I actually got made :-):
     
    Board (rev 2):

     
    Schematics (rev 2):

     
    PCB with ENC28J60 (rev 1):

     
    Assembled mounted on Launchpad (rev 1):

     
    Main change between rev 1 and 2 is that the SPI connections are correct. Also the power traces are thicker.
    The RJ-45 mag jack is a cheap one I got on E-bay for 2 USD. If I end up using this board heavily, there are two changes I would make for a new revision: First, extend it over the Emulation-area, rather than the switches and leds. Second, the reset-line of the ENC28J60 is tied to the reset-line of the Launchpad. While that does save a pin, it makes it impossible to use a debugger :oops: .

    SugarAddict got a reaction from OppaErich in What's the typical SMD size used here?   
    I don't know whats wrong with you people! I hand solder 0402 and have more of that than most other stuff... which is sometimes a problem when working with other peoples stuff... but the 0402 can be soldered to fit 0603 and 0805 pads.

    2 simple layouts for putting under the C2KLP while still saving the extra headers. Both meant to have rubber feet, female headers upward, and a 90º male header up facing north/south...

    You never see ASCII art nowadays...especially not in a commercial products like this. I actually originally developed this to show off to management when I was validating USB on our F2806x device. It was the perfect example for demonstrating the CDC device class.

    Glad to hear people are getting their launchpads. I'm really sorry about the jumpers...in the rush to get everything done and ready I must have over looked this. If it starts to become an issue, I'm going to try to get some bags of jumpers put up in the estore for free.
     
    In the mean time, these jumpers from digikey should work:

    Please do be careful as you're using the board as Automate said. 5V, 3.3V and Ground are all on the header pins that face downward, so placing the board on something metal (or a pile of other boards...hey I know my desk is messy...) while the board is powered could potentially damage something. I think I'm going to make a mounting board boosterpack that will have receptacles for all the downward facing pins and some mounting holes. This should help to protect those bottom pins and give you some points that you can use to (semi-)permanently attach the launchpad to your project.
     
    Also, We're on HackaDay!! Twice nonetheless!!! I'm pretty stoked. I've been reading hackaday since its inception, but I've never had anything of my own creation on there. Its really a great feeling to start being able to give back to the community after I've learned so much from it.
