Pill timer board.

Post by apburner » Tue Nov 29, 2011 9:21 am

So i get the December issue and there on the front cover is a project for the 10f200. Well last week I had seen these little gems and thought I should be able to come up with some really good uses for them. So I bout 10 of the 10f206's mostly because the cost difference with the 200 is insignificant but also because there is more memory room to spread out in. I love you little board but do wish you has given us the eagle layout files too. I would like to try my have as making these with the laser print method but I have found that that program does not print very dark. Is there any way to get those in eagle file format or as a PDF or something that can be printed darkly. Also I have been unable to log into the December issue digitally though Nov and back works great. So I can't even get the express PCB files.
Thanks to everybody for making a great magazine from a loyal subscriber for many years.

OK after a little research I have found that if I print the file out to PDF as high a resolution as I can then I got a PDF to BMP free converter and converted at 600DPI I find that I can now print out the board using paint shop pro7 and it will be dark enough to do what I need. I can also mirror it. I added some vias to the board so I can drill them with tiny drill bit and run 30 gauge jumpers to eliminate the bottom side of the board.

In the article the author states he would like some of the through holes for the board to be just a little larger. Would it be easy to modify the ExpressPCB layouts to accomplish this?

Thanks

it would be easy to do that. though some of them are kinda tight to begin with. But if he had made the files available in eagle format I would have considered getting some of these boards made. I don't need 75 of them however and don't need to spend $75 for boards I can get made a whole lot cheaper thru some other services and groups.
