Recently I finished a first version of the DCM Brick (DC Motor Control). As for the DIO brick and the Master Brick, I designed schematic and PCB using fritzing . Also I ordered the PCBs from fritzing FAB. For the firmware I used my own libemb as a basis. The DCM brick allows driving two DC motors independently. Each motors direction (clockwise […]
Master Brick, two DIO bricks (in the back), a breadboard proto of the DCM brick (one Launchpad for the proto, one for programming the DIOs).
Also long time ago finished: the master bricks PCB and large parts of the firmware. Currently the MB is already able to drive the DIO and DCM bricks (multible of them). As before, I designed schematic and PCB using fritzing and ordered the PCBs from fritzing FAB. Currently I have not designed a case for the MB (since I […]
The DIO (Digital IO) brick for my brick-o-lage project is already finished. I designed schematic and PCB using fritzing . Also I ordered the PCBs from fritzing FAB (and they turned out great). For the firmware I used my own libemb as a basis. DIO Brick Specifications Uses a MSP430G2553 from TI Runs custom firmware […]
A while ago, I started a new project trying to create different “smart” bricks which will interconnect with some other well known brick systems (e.g. Lego). By “smart” bricks, bricks are meant which are able to perform a certain functionality like driving LEDs, detecting button presses, control DC motors or servos, read sensors and so […]
During Christmas holidays my son and I converted an old RC car to be controlled through LEGO power functions. For more pictures and information see the project page.
