Let the ALIEN#2 work begin… in 1 week. It’s still exam season so persuading the Physics department to lend an oscilloscope will have to wait, but while work itself isn’t taking place, I can still have the kind postman deliver funky stuff. First up is the XPLAIN evaluation board. We’re considering an XMEGA due to the need for many many UARTs and a DAC on our second flight, so before committing to having a PCB fabricated I’m going to use this thing to breadboard our flightcomputer. Oh, we’ve also got an NiM2, thanks to the people at Radiometrix who have showed their kindness yet again in donation.
