These are the test v-score panels. I also have a tabbed version of the panel in the fab for further testing.
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.
I have the first 5 Prop Dev Sticks boxed up for testers. I will be dropping them off at the post office tomorrow. Hopefully no hardware bugs pop up!
Also I am looking into adding more daily blogs posts. Content like app-notes, engineering design thoughts, and interesting parts.
I updated the PDS repository with information on how to configure the FT230X EEPROM and the Propeller Tool IDE.
Template for FT230X EEPROM
You will need to download FT-Prog from FTDI. The FT230X needs to be flashed with this template for the Propeller Development Stick to function correctly.
Also the Propeller Tool needs a tweak to its options to make it use the RTS signal to reset the Propeller instead of the DTR signal (which the FT230X does not have). Do this by opening Propeller Tool and clicking Edit. At the bottom there is “Preferences”. Under the tab “Operation” there will be Propeller Reset Signal. Change it from “DTR” to “DTR & RTS”. Press accept to save the settings. Propeller GCC using SimpleIDE also allows you to change the reset signal in the general tab of properties.
