Nov-Dec 2013 Project of the Month Sponsors/Planning

Recommended Posts

Hello 43oh'ers.


This is a call to members who would like to donate or give away kits for the 43oh 2013 Project of the Month Contest prize pool. 


I have a few kits which I have and do not use. If you are interested in sponsoring or giving away a kit, add yours to the list below. Please note that a donating member will have to ship the kit to me. This will free you of the hassle of waiting to ship and also save International shipping costs. Overseas( outside the US ), will keep the kits to themselves until the end of the contest. I'll let you know when to ship it.

43oh member @@Fred has graciously donated his time and laser cutting skills for one of winner's choice of design. Thank you Fred.


You can see some of Fred's work in this thread where he improved upon @ILAMtitan's design.

Thanks Fred!


I'd like to donate something. I've been collecting toys lately and I'm lucky enough to have a 3D printer and a laser cutter. I'd be happy to print/laser something. The winner can email me the design for what they want. I'll make it and ship it.

We are excited to welcome Saleae as a Sponsor to 43oh. Saleae makes USB-based logic analyzers which can record over 1 billion samples and decode SPI, I2C, Serial, 1-Wire, CAN, Manchester and I2S. They are known for their Logic 8 and Logic 16 Analyzer and very intuitive user interface.

We have met them at a couple of Maker Faires and are a fun bunch of people.


Saleae is sponsoring one Logic 8 for the POTM Contest. Valued at $149, it is a tool every embedded enthusiast should have. Thank you, Saleae!






Input voltage range: -0.5V to 5.25V
Input Low Voltage: -0.5V to 0.8V
Input High Voltage: 2.0V to 5.25V
Works with 5V, 3.3V, 2.5V, 2.0V systems. May work with 1.8V but not recommended.
ESD protected per CE requirements
Over-voltage protection to +/- 15V. Not meant for continuous operation outside -0.5V to 5.25V.
Input Impedance: 1Mohm || 10pF (typical, approximate)
Error/Accuracy: pulse-width measurement: +/- 42ns (at 24MHz).
Sample Rate & Depth
24MHz. 16MHz, 12MHz, 8MHz, 4MHz, 2MHz, 1MHz, 500KHz, 250KHz, 200KHz, 100KHz, 50KHz, 25KHz; Note that achieving the highest sample rates requires low USB latency; this may not be achievable on all computers. Performance may improve with the removal of other USB devices, using a different USB host controller, or increasing the software's process priority.
10B samples. Absolute max depends on data compressibility, available RAM and operating system. 10B samples assumes reasonably high compressibility.



What's in the Box

Can I add my modest contribution? I would like to add three (3) Li-Ion 3.7v 1150mAh batteries to the prize pool.



:smile: Will Post the pictures as soon as I get home tonight. I have used it in a project using schematics and parts of the LiPo boosterpack. It charges and works perfectly. I can share the Kicad schematics with the community when needed.



A picture of all three batteries.
