2015-01-26 (M) Color/Touch + Sound

The rest of the obvious components were added to the schematic. These were the devices used on the Color/Touch Sensory Panel and include the switch under each quadrant, a reed switch, and an IR socket. Less obvious components include:
  • voltage regulators
  • line level converters
  • opto-Isolators
  • power terminals
  • mother-daughter board connectors
  • device inter-connection signals
  • auxiliary posts for musical devices
  • jumper for alt modes
  • and supporting components.

    Added switches
    Whole schematic

    As components are added a link is saved for each in an Evernote file. This file will be made public when it is believed to be complete. A second list will also be made which describes more economical places to get some of the components.

    To do:
    1. Cut 8mm from polycarbonate sheets
    2. Test ISD1820PY chip 
      1. Test for correct GND/Vcc hookup
      2. Test with 5VDC
    3. Create circuit board
      1. Designate all components
      2. Design schematic of components
        1. voltage regulators
        2. line level converters
        3. opto-Isolators
        4. power terminals
        5. mother-daughter board connectors
        6. device inter-connection signals
        7. auxiliary posts for musical devices
        8. jumper for alt modes
        9. and supporting components.
      3. Design layout for single layer board
    4. Make a parts list
    5. Order parts list
    6. Print circuit board
    7. Install components 
    8. Test + Verify
    9. Make all documentation public
