Re: DIY builders for hire

Hi All, I am just getting into EuroRack and I have a Pittsburgh Modular MIDI3 - bought it second hand, it is my first extender module for a DFAM and M32 combo. Using it with a RowPower 30. It wasnt working when it arrived, I think I tried to power into the wrong connector (the extender connector?) ...

Re: DIY 4ms SMR

That's a great idea, I will try hotplate before I grab a rework station. Also, shameless self plug, wrote a little blog on my build experience: https://www.stevetravale.com/4ms-smr-build-diary-9/ Any feedback would be much appreciated! I don't think anyone really reads this sort of content anymore....

Solder paste dispenser.

I'm sure there are a lot of DIYers using solder paste and even those using soldering irons for SMD work will find this handy:

This I have found worth it's weight in gold over the last 6 months, I can highly recommend it.

Re: DIY 4ms SMR

I so glad the iBOM opens this module up to DIYers that would have normally given it a go. We are blessed with the permission of the designer and it is quite a challenge, even with the iBOM. It made me sit down with vagrant and figure that out, even if it is just to write HEX files. I use a hot plate...

Have a look in "build", in a subfolder for each project / Eurorack module.

e.g.

C:\Users\{your_name_here}\mutable-dev-environment\eurorack-modules\build\plaits

- or Mac equivalent.
And there it is, Something I overlooked as always.
Thanks for pointing the obvious out Andy.

It took me a while but I've managed to everything working but using the: make -f xxxxx/bootloader/makefile hex make -f xxxxx/makefile hex It does something but if it is writing the HEX file, I don't seem to be able to find it anywhere.

Re: Need some help with compiling hex file [SOLVED]

I managed to get everything working but I don't seem to be able to find the HEX file i've made. I guess I'll need to spend a little more time to figure out where it puts things. It would be nice if it put the HEX files in the same place it found the make files.

Re: DIY 4ms SMR

It makes the build within reach for so many people, it's a fantastic module but just seeing the 114 1k resistors.....hmmm, so much room for error. The iBOM is the way forward and I'm glad people can make use of it. It was another wiggler that put me on to it when I started building SMD modules. This...

Re: Order

I'm tempted to solder an area at a time (diodes, caps, resistors), sort of soldering in a circle around the IC's, so that I can leave some space for the tip, thoughts? Has anyone just done say all 114 of the 1K resistors one after the other and then moved on to all of another value? Any other tips?...

Re: DIY 4ms SMR

Well the build was straight forward enough using the iBOM, took a little under 5hrs from start to finish with only one issue along the way....The 12/5v jumper...hmmmm...idiot.

Re: DIY 4ms SMR

I don't know if this iBOM makes this build any easier for folk:
SMR iBOM.rar
Let us know if it's of use as it may help others decide whether to build it or not. With such a price tag on the parts I would think it's a bit of a gamble for some so I hope the iBOM helps.

I’d replace R49 first then measure voltages before soldering in a new microcontroller. I've replaced R49 and resoldered the MCU the correct way. Would it of damaged the MCU?

Re: DIY Mutable Unsuccessful Builds

I did yes.
I powered it up and R49 burnt out, once the MCU had been soldered the right way and R49 was replaced I hooked it up to the ST-Link and it doesn't recongise it with the Jtag either way round.
It's my own fault, it's the last one of five and I rushed it.

Re: DIY Mutable Unsuccessful Builds

I've just finished a Braids build and noticed the ARM is the wrong way, Not before powering it up though...the 4.7K resistor R49. I've removed and correctly fitted it but ST-link says no, I'm assuming it needs to be replaced. I first fitted it 90 degrees CCW, would I have damaged anything else? I've...
