Re: Sell Gigatron?

Having like 4 layer PCBs (4$ more expensive than the 2 layer one) would possibly allow to have the components almost right next to eachother. Will start from today, hopefully will finish before new years. (Quick question, are there any editable pcb schematics for KICAD? The ones on the main page don...

Re: Sell Gigatron?

Are the DIL packages actually still produces in Brazil? (Or maybe other South American countries?) It surely makes sense to source locally then. Companies like JLCPCB are not very expensive for PCBs, but the PCBs are still a large investment if you want to do a small batch. Technically a rearrangem...

Re: Sell Gigatron?

Pretty sure that if you replaced the TTL THT chips with TTL SMD chips, the price could be cut down by a fair bit. And they could be bought from asian component suppliers (dirt cheap but works). like jlcpcb does with lcsc

Re: Gigatron ASIC?!?

Producing ASIC's isn't that cheap (regular ones start at about 500 thousand). It also can only be ordered as die in amounts of 1000's, which of you would have to put an epoxy blob and pins? on. You could use some cheap FPGA chip that would be powerful enoough, Neverthless Gigatron-On-A-Chip (GoC sug...
