Arduino Angel Board Project

Thought I would share something I have been working on. With the great GCode, and ALOT of help from Dirty Engineer, among others, I have started my own OLED angel (LCD-G7FLY) board project.

Items so far:
1. Schematic
2. Design board
3. modify GCode for OLED support

To Do:
1. Verify electricals
2. Verify battery monitor circuit
3. Silkscreen layer
4. Prototype

Compromises:
1. Gave up forcing code onto 328p and went with the 644p. Even if i did get it to fit on the 328p, it would be almost un ungradeable. With the 644p, plenty of room to add firemodes later on






CURRENT STATE:
1284p mega chip

Very nice Jeff. I see you took some PCB design cues from the Predator boards and their break away mounting points. I'm super interested in this project.

Any plan on doing something for the A1 platform?

What kind of cost would we be looking at? And not to seem dense, but where does the Arduino factor in? Are you just using the Arduino IDE to write the code for the ATmega chip? I didn't see any Arduino boards built around the 644p.

The problem with both the a1 and speed platforms is the lack of button inputs. It would be easy enough to adapt for the actual board shape, but redoing the code for a different input would be a pain.

Not in the plans at the moment, but who knows.

As for cost, that is gonna vary greatly on quantity. A prototype or two will be pricey, but if all goes well, quantity will be reasonable. Lets just leave it at that for now

That's what I figured when I noticed there were no Arduino boards based on it And you're using the Arduino bootloader and IDE just for the code then? What's the advantage over just using the factory programmer (code portability, I suppose)?

Not using a bootloader, using the Arduino IDE to write code directly to the chip (wanted to save space).

It was more of a compatibility thing, since the original concept was born around the pro mini/micro and the paintduino.

I was just tired of using mounts, and since i wanted the oled and was writing the code i need a platform to test. So i decided to do it from the ground up.

Ahh, I thought you needed the Arduino bootloader on the chip to use it with the Arduino IDE.

not if you use a arduino inbetween for programming (usbtinyisp)

Oh, very nice. Saves a little bit of space for more modes

I found your posts in the GCode thread at Inception so I think I'm more or less up to speed now

Hey as long as it has a PSP reactive trigger mode, high denounce settings, a way for us to program personal settings and for a price of about 120.00 then I'll take 4-5.
