Re: TI-H: PCB
What I meant to say, is I take the individual letters and form my own text
like I'll copy the whole phrase "Made in USA" and put it into a free corner of
the board, or I'll take ARCHER, and use the letters R, H, C and E to form
"RICH" (I cut the E to form I). It actualy make the board look more
profesional (as opposed to a signed autograph in marker, in text with lines so
thin that a SOIC chip could be soldered on them (sorry Mel, I had to throw
that in :)
THe dry transfers are nice for one or two boards. toner transfers only rate
second cause of the cost and the fact that for me, I don't have good access to
PCB software, and it's easier to just paint it or dry transfer it. THe quality
ain't bad though.
Also, I've seen photo resist stuff in catalogs, and you mentioned it, but what
exactly is involved in it??? I've never tried it (I've always had my feric
chloride and paint/dry transfers on my shelf, ready for use.
I know you can do quality work with it, but I've never tried.
Also, I have a NICE PCB layout for my muscle wire robot (which just happens to
use the EXACT same driver the rumble pack will use, so all I need to do is cut
two transistors off, and add a volume adjust to the opposite end, separating
groujnd witha cut in the center of the two pairs of drivers. seems simple enough!
If I weren't so broke, i'd make one for myself! (:
But I need to save that $30 for Legend of Zelda, Ocarina of time! (:
I'll have the other $30 for it by the time they release it!
