CM1K Breakout Board
This repo contains the code and design files for the CM1K breakout board discussed in this blog post.
src/ directory I've included the original Altium files for the schematic and PCB, as well the library files for the crystal oscillator and CM1K. I know Altium is fairly inaccessible, but I've had some trouble getting a good export that works in a free PCB editor. Please contact me if you would like to work with these files, and I'll help you make them accessible to your editor of choice!
dist/ directory contains a PDF of the schematic as well as a zip file containing Gerber files for the PCB. This zip file is the exact same as the one I uploaded to Advanced Circuits to purchase this board.
I originally purchased all components from Digikey, and generated the BOM below from that cart. However, the CM1K no longer appears to be available from Digikey.

The code for this board consists of a small collection of fairly short Python scripts. It's not particularly clean or well documented right now, but most of it is short enough that it should be fairly straightforward. I'm not planning to go back and clean it up unless I decide to pursue a larger project using the CM1K.
code/ directory includes:
cm1k.py, a simple library for accessing the CM1K's hardware from Python
test.py, a small unit test file containing a simple test script
mnist_test.py, the script I used to run my MNIST KNN experiment documented in the blog post
requirements.txt, the pip requirements for running
