Paying gig

I mentioned that I haven't had any time to work on ArdweeNET lately because someone decided I was worth paying to do some design work...go figure.

Anyway here's a pic of the board I designed for them.

I did almost all of the schematic design as well as all of the PCB layout. It has all sorts of goodies like Ethernet, GSM, microSD, Arduino Mega compatible etc etc. There are two boards that connect with a ribbon cable and are housed in a DIN rail enclosure. It's to be used for the specialised industrial control the company does.

So I haven't been idle.

There are not more boards to design and of course get working, so who knows when I'll get back to ArdweeNET full time, but I'll hopefully be able to do some work on getting the ArdweeNODE boards up and running.


  1. Hello,
    Pure curiosity from a casual reader: Which software do you use to design the PCB layout? and which one did you use to produce this nice rendered 3D image?

  2. I use Altium for PCB design, the 3D rendering is part of that. The 3D models aren't though, they are mostly available on the web but it takes along time to accumulate them.
