scanlime045 – Icestudio LED Matrix Driver Part 1

In this project we’ll be programming up some FPGA “gateware” using the visual Icestudio environment and the industry standard Verilog language, in order to display full color images on an inexpensive HUB75E-style LED video wall panel.

This first video focuses on project bringup and just getting *something* on the screen, even if it’s a bit buggy!

The Icestudio editor and the entire build toolchain are free and open source software!

The FPGA board and adapter PMOD are part of the iCEBreaker CrowdSupply campaign, which was successfully funded! This is a great little FPGA dev board, and a platform designed to help more people get started with FPGAs using open source tools.

This project is available on Github.

scanlime044 – FPGA Quick Answer

We’re doing some projects now with FPGAs, but first what even is that? This is a quick answer, compiled from the unscripted explanations I would give live.

scanlime041 – Pineapple Slime Oscillator

Watch on YouTube or Diode Zone:

Assemble the Boldport Ananas with me, in a trippy music video full of fluorescent goo and disco ball motors! This is a fun electronics kit that calmly pulses its yellow LEDs with a set of transistorized ring oscillators.

scanlime040 – Test Jig Quick Look

I found these two test jigs for sale at a local business that was relocating. They would have been used as part of the quality assurance procedure for smart bike lights. Later we might go into more detail on the firmware, or repurpose the formidable hunks of metal for another project!

scanlime039 – Unboxing Cameras and LEDs, USB 3 and pre-UNIX

In my live streams I’ve been inviting you to send me new reverse engineering projects at my P.O. box. In these videos, I’ll introduce a few of the items I’ve been receiving, with a bit of the mystery preserved!

scanlime037 – Squishy Resistor Repair

These wire-wound resistors have seen better days, and my trusty Orion Delta printer from SeeMeCNC needs a replacement heater. More recent printer designs use cartridge heaters, but this’ll be an oldschool repair with fresh resistors and silicone goop. After the repair, I’ll do a test print with time lapse!

This repair is following the instructional video from SeeMeCNC.

scanlime036 – DaveCAD Sticky Printer

Some of you may know about a fancy CAD package used by a certain popular electronics rambler on utube, and I wanted a piece of that sweet handwritten design. Hanging with Tuco Crew one night, the tiger and I put this crack together. Milled linoleum printing block, 3D printed alignment jig, and as many copies of DaveCAD as we can eat.
