The goal of this project is to provide everything you need to know to build your own eXtreme Feedback Device (XFD) at a reasonable cost (round about 10 Euros).
The schematic of the device is quite simple:
Printed Circuit Board
I made a layout for a pcb, but I didn't use it myself up to now. Fabricating a pcb seemed to much effort for the simple layout, so I still use a stripboard.
Bill of Materials
A list of parts used in the schematic is generated as hardware/XFD.bom. Additionally you will need a piece of stripboard, three LEDs (red, yellow and green) as output device or something similar (see above) a case and an USB cable. Optionally you can add a socket for the PIC if you prefer to not solder it directly.
- Snapshot build of the java host program (including dependencies): buildmonitor-with-dependenicies.jar
- Snapshot build of the device firmware for 18f13k50: XFD.hex (use with a boot loader), XFD_noBL.hex (use without a boot loader).
- Snapshot build of the device firmware for 18f2550: XFD.hex (use with a boot loader), XFD_noBL.hex (use without a boot loader).
The snapshot builds run on CloudBees
