Day 5 29th Dec 2020
Programming PCB.
The F1 car chip has 4 tiny pads for programming to save space. To quickly align the programming pins a custom set up is manufactured to not only make sure programming is fast and easy but also reliable.
Here’s the PCB that John designed. The files have been sent off to a company that specialises in rapid turn around PCBs only.
John will add a few components by hand here.
Day 6 onwards will be a waiting game.

Day 6 Sunday 20th off

Day 7 Monday 21st Redesign board 3 hours work to suit manufacturers directives. Resubmitted.

 

Day 8 Tuesday 22nd. Manufacturer confirms design is ok. The 3rd manufacturer notifies us they also cannot do a job this small so we have no choice but to go with the one who can. 
Turnaround time 4 weeks. 
Once received the program can be loaded on . The advantage of using the same chip as the Gen II chip is huge.
