Hackaday Prize Entry: BeagleLogic

A few years ago, [Kumar] created the BeagleLogic, a 14-channel, 100 MSPS logic analyzer for the BeagleBone as an entry for the Hackaday Prize. This is a fantastic tool that takes advantage of the PRUs in the BeagleBone to give anyone with a BeagleBone a very capable logic analyzer for not much cash. This year,…

Manual assembly of KiCad PocketBone

We’re excited to see that Michael Welling of QWERTY Embedded Design has completed manual assembly of his KiCad-designed PocketBone with the Octavo Systems OSD3358 SiP (System-in-Package):

BGA achievement unlocked

Michael used vacuum pickup tool to manually place the components:

Here is a video of him placing the components:

Michael then used Reflowster to reflow the solder paste:

FPGA cape for BeagleBone

Jim Kleiner created a minimal FPGA cape for the BeagleBone Black: BBB LX9 FPGA Board Jim describes his design decisions: I decided to try a minimalist hand solderable FPGA board. The LX9 is the largest part available in a TQG-144, beyond that its BGAs One of the key points is that the SPI interface is on BBB […]
