I have been learning Perl scripting the last week and this is one of the first scripts I wrote. It takes the Bill of Materials output from Eagle and converts it to a format that you can import into Mousers BOM Import Tool. Very handy for setting up orders quickly. It will also scan your BOM for reference values like “100uF” and “4.7K”. It takes these reference values and converts them to an actual part number based on what you set in the reference.csv file.
Add new references to the reference.csv file in the following format.
“Part Value”,”Package”,”Manufacture Part Number”,
Run the perl script by passing it the Bill Of Materials from Eagle as an argument. Only works with List type set as “Values” and Output format set as “CSV” in the Eagle BOM generator.
Built a mini Strandbeest kit this evening. Picked up the kit off ebay for $16. Was a nice break from building electronics. Will make a video for it when the camera is charged.
Just finished the documentation for the PDS REV 2. You can find the complete documentation on my github repository. Working on Panelizing the board for assembly and the Kickstarter video.
Uploaded a video explaining a bit more about the functionality of the AT2 and the waveforms of the op-amps.
