DASL: Weekly Update 2007-08-23

Please see Figure 1 (Schematics for Inverted Pendulum Analog Motor Driver) below for the schematics for the inverted pendulum’s analog motor driver V1

Please see Figure 1 (Schematics for Inverted Pendulum Analog Motor Driver) below for the schematics for the inverted pendulum’s analog motor driver V1.0.  I have also constructed a PCB board lay out using Eagle layout editor and placed an order with AP Circuits, the same place that Bill Green used, to fabricate two (2) boards for approximately $110.  It is important to note that the more boards we have the less it will cost.  Also I am able to procure the parts to populate the board once I have the fabricated board.

 

Please see Figure 2 (PCB Board Layout using Jameco #99427 with 0.2” separation instead of 0.197”) for the PCB layout.  Also please Click Here for the gerber files for that schematic.

Goals for next week:

-         Populate and test the PCB board once I have received it.

-         Look into getting the power supply working/controlled with Labview.
