Re: 9Xtreme being released to the public domain (opensource)

Well, the last 2 days I have had a little bit of success and a failure. Managed to dodgy up a usb connection to get some stuff going. Fried 1 mcu on one board (didn't see it bridged even under the microscope). Another one not getting any response from. So at 50 percent so far :lol: :lol: Just rememb...

Re: 9Xtreme being released to the public domain (opensource)

Waiting for one last connector to make the wires for the usb so we can hopefully program this thing sometime during the next week or so... if everything goes well. (who knows lol)

Re: 9Xtreme being released to the public domain (opensource)

Great to see this getting off the ground - I'd be keen on an assembled board, although fancy a blank one to have a go with too, if you have some spare... I still have about 15 blanks if you are interested in one. Postage times are probably a lot longer now. Yesterday the last remaining connectors a...

Re: 9Xtreme being released to the public domain (opensource)

According to several websites it is an obselete part. Any ideas were I can still find this part or if I can substitute it with a current part? I personally purchased this component due to it being completely pin compatible. In fact I purchased 90% of all items from here. Please note I am still wait...

Re: 9Xtreme being released to the public domain (opensource)

Still progress happening, albeit very slowly due to this virus getting around. Had a few different types of pogos finally arrive. 1 type is pretty close but still waiting on one final bag which are about 0.5mm longer. Thanks to s_macs post on his site about the screws I think I may of had some succe...

Re: 9Xtreme being released to the public domain (opensource)

Whilst I am at all this I wouldn't mind seeing how much interest there is for assembled boards plus all the other hardware (speaker, rgb panel and foam pad, usb header and cables - No stickers though). They will be hand assembled units, price is probably going to really depend on interest, but even ...

Re: 9Xtreme being released to the public domain (opensource)

The 12 pin ZH to PH cable is proving pretty hard to find. May have to resort to making them up myself after some of the quotes I got back. Even the cost of the tools is pretty outrageous(even aftermarket). I will get something figured out soon though :) Contacted JST directly so hopefully should get...

Just a bit of an update so people know stuff is still happening. About 95% of all the parts I need have arrived. Still waiting for a few items that had to come from aliexpress and whilst they are in the post, they are notorious for taking a long time to get here. I have a desk setup with all the par...

Re: 9Xtreme being released to the public domain (opensource)

So (should) we are to be waiting to see how this new board is preforms before we place our orders ? There are only minor differences in the pcb's really. The is an extra route for the DAC and the original one was moved to give us a little more room from the i2c tracks, you can choose whichever one ...

Will see what works first before I offer anything for sale :) The only stuff I have left to source/build is the pogo's if i go that route, the usb header and cable, the rgb backlight and the speaker.

Well DHL always impress me with their delivery times. Shenzhen to Perth in 41.5 hours. I hadn't expected them so soon. I'll get around to dropping messages to everyone who wanted some.

Re: 9Xtreme being released to the public domain (opensource)

If no comments/revisions by lets say the 7th of January, I'll look at placing that order. Anyone that wants one should put there hand up over the next week in case I need more than planned. Postage will be on an individual basis.

Yes to using BATTERY_PROTECTED on J2 J4, this is shown on Staggie's V1.2 circuit. Didn't even notice that to be honest! That's the problem with just having the pdf, it's a lot of connections to check. v1.2.2 Schematic and pcb released onto github for everybody. Everyone should feel free to check it...

Re: 9Xtreme being released to the public domain (opensource)

I actually hadn't added anything for reverse polarity. After reviewing some posts and seeing the information from Mike I have now added it to the schematic, just having a little trouble with diptrace saying the connection is broken once i add it to the pcb. I'll update this post once it's completed.
