Morse Code Tutor PCB

Bruce Hall
 

All,

Following in Dave KI4PSR's footsteps, I designed another PCB for the Morse Code Tutor.  To keep costs down I am not selling the PCB. Instead, I am publishing the gerbers so that you can obtain your own.  My cost for five boards at JLCPCB was $1.46 each plus shipping.

The PCB is roughly 5.5" x 2.75" in size.  All components can be board mounted.

I also prepared a set of building instructions. The Bill of Materials includes part numbers and links for Digikey and Mouser.

Here are a few links to the documentation:

All:

The Arduino family do tie the onboard LED to pin 13. However, it appears that other microcontrollers are free to use whatever pin they wish for the LED. A good place to start looking is on the controller's pinout image:

Inline image

If you look at physical pin #2 in the image above, in the lower-right corner you will see that the symbolic constant for the LED is pin PC13. Unlike the Arduinos, which do map physical and logical pins in the same manner, the STM32's apparently do not.

Just an update on my post made on Sep 7, # 6947.

The original three, from an Amazon supplier, I have been unable to program .  I purchased 5 from a Ebay supplier and they programed the first time I tried. I have ordered 5 from another supplier but haven't received those.

The ones from the Ebay supplier have the correct resistor installed on the back side.

As a sidebar, the "blink" sketch provided in on of the links that loads the stm boards into the Arduino IDE is wrong.

This is the sketch.

The above sketch is also included in a couple of the tutorials I have downloaded from the web.

Re: Re; AA from LZ2RR

I have been buying from Banggood for some time.  The items have almost all come in as advertised and I was given a refund (after a few emails) on the one that wasn't.  I continue to order from them.
When ordering check the order carefully for correct prices and shipping fees and for extra charges like insurance.

Howdy YLs & OMs,

I'm in the process of building an LZ2RR AA. My only problem has been locating a reliable vendor for the AD9851 DDS module. Thanks to SCHR members I was able to source one of those modules. I chose BangGood source of AliExpress, just to see how they operate, but I have not ever purchased anything from either vendor before. I generally buy via eBay, but Chinese vendors there are generally a slippery lot. I bought an AD9850 DDS module, prior to sale I sent a photo of the type II to that vendor to which was replied, "we have that" and then he sent me a type I saying "it's ok, same thing!"   All of the eBay vendors that I contacted regarding the board type and chip number, none replied after a week.

I hunted around quite a bit for the display module and nano board before finding a valid source. I have both now but have not tested either. I probably should some time soon. Display module, "MCUfreind" also incorporates a resistive touch sensor overlay and appears to have been tested by as there is a 'scribble-crease' in the protective plastic laminate. The vendor claims to test each prior to sale.  There are multiple clones of that LCD, picking the correct unit is a bit of a crap-shoot it seems. No specs.. The mini-360 seems dodgy too. I've read a bunch of reviews about it not working too well. So I decided to try Miro's - LZ2RR approach. I'll let you all know how it goes.

The LZ2RR board has not yet arrived in my locale. As I have a (mostly) home-brew delta 3D printer, I will print a case for it.

The rechargeable LiPo battery is a slick addition in my opinion...but the whole gadget is also very slick. I love OpenHardware / OpenSource. A pal, Rick Sparber says something akin to, "the more the brains, the merrier!" or maybe its the "The all of us is better than the one of us!" or something, you get the jist!

Erhan,

As far as I know there is no problem.  Postage might be around $3.00.  I just shipped 2 PCB's to Germany for $2.13.

Dave,

I recently shipped 2 boards to the UK for $2.15.  I have lots of boards available (2 dozen).

US Postal Service said same price for 1 or 2 boards; might as well buy 2!

Let me know if you need help finding the BOM and construction info.  It is hard to find on the forum 'files' section.

Pricing is as follows:
One board  -> $2.00 plus $1.15 USA shipping.
Two boards -> $3.50 plus $1.15 USA Shipping
Please provide your complete mailing address to me when ordering.
I prefer PayPal.

My Paypal account: ggkraemer@...

Changing the board number from 1 to 2 is no problem. I can't mail more than 2 boards in my existing package.  Mailing more than 2 boards will also increase the USPS postage cost.
