Week 11: Input Devices

This week

I need to remake my project board, I think.

A brief summary of terrors

  • The 80 degree engraving bits are very sensitive to board thickness. They can produce either excellent results or terrible results. In any case not worth using over the flat endmills.
  • Might have lit a voltage regulator or something on fire.
  • Magnet wire works for repairing traces, but only to a point. It has a tendency to detach itself under strain.
  • Hardware I2C is apparently hard. Maybe I should resort to software I2C as a peripheral instead.
  • I still have no idea whether or not capacitative touch works.
