Unfortunately I do not need 5 of your boards @ $15/ea.

But if you could arrange some sort of group buy, I'd be in for one @ $15-20. And I am trusting enough fool to front you the cash. Wonder if there are 4+ other such fools out there?

Yea I was not expecting anyone to buy 5 (Hmm A different GTI for every day of the work week...) As for fronting the cash I am willing to order and test the first one. I would just want payment before I shipped them out. I just want to make sure there are buyers for them before I order them. I have a few stacks of raw cards where I ended up ordering 3 to 6 of them and only used one or two :(

Since it is just the raw card postage would be under $3 for normal snail mail. Priority mail would be more (by a lot almost $15 for the same size / weight package)

If that sounds good to you just leave another post and I will add you to the list.

Once I have enough folks interested I am willing to do a bulk order on the bits as well.

Current thoughts:
1.) Raw card only $15 + shipping
2.) Raw card + programed micro $25 ish(see note) + shipping
3.) Raw card + all parts (un-assembled) $45 ish(see note) + shipping

Note
The ish above will move based on how many folks order part kits and how much digikey charges me to ship the parts down. Usually I just take the shipping / taxes and divide by the number of folks getting parts. Numbers above should be on the high side (I hope :)

Thanks much GTI hopefully we will get the last 2 we need. I am going to run downstairs and grab the source files and take them with me on this trip. If we get enough this week I will be able to send out for the raw cards and they will hopefully be sitting here when I get back :)

Man wireb, I haven't been on this thread in a while, great to see you're making progress.

I'd be interested myself, but I do have to ask, do I have to program the board and such myself? I have NO idea how to do so. If you can help me out with programming it, then count me in for sure.

Option #2 and #3 would come with programed chips (just have to let me know which program you want.)

Option #3 would have all parts needed to put one together. I will also have some almost step by step instructions for the build. (ie 1.) install 10k resistors in locations R55, R65 ect)

You WILL need to know how to solder and have the tools to do it with. The entire card is pin though hole so should be relatively easy to put together with just about any normal 40W - 80W iron.

Hopefully I answered your questions darcness and ludo. Let me know if your still interested and I can add you to the list.

Just a BOM and a schematic (which you've already posted), thanks.
And don't tell anyone, but it won't be RoHS.

GTI, nhbubba, golfdub, darcness

post a quick message and let me know which option for parts you want
1 = just a raw card, 2 = raw card + micro, 3 = raw card + all parts (see above post for guestamate on prices)
Anyone wanting option 2 or 3 also let me know what initial firmware load you want Dump or Buttons.
Also let me know what method you want for shipping (and a zip code / country PM if you don't want to post to all) I will try and get shipping costs figured out as well.

Dump = everything on the bus gets spit out in raw hex with some padding.
Buttons = just button presses in nice ASCII text with formatting. (ex BU1[CR][LR] for the first button more details on the button numbering later. note the U is for unknown once we discover the message that tells what page the display is on there will be a one character code there indicating the page when the button was pressed. )

Shipping is your choice. If you want to pay for next day I can do both USPS and UPS (no fedex around me). Worst case USPS priority mail would be 4.95 for a small flat rate box. Raw card only should be under $2 for normal mail unless I messed up punching numbers in.

Final price option 1 will be $15 + shipping just got the final quote from the card house for 6 raw cards.
Options #2 and #3 will vary depending on how many folks want which one. Once I get responses from everyone I will get a quote from Digikey with shipping and verify everyone is ok with it before placing the order.

If Ludo decides to go for it I hope to place the orders on wed / thurs so everything gets delivered before the weekend. That way its ready once I get back to town. Once parts arrive I will need a day to build up mine and verify it work ok. Once that is done I should be able to send out the kits the next business day (post office and UPS are on my way to work)

You could also make an option 4 where you do all the soldering for the people who have no idea what they are doing

I'm currently considering whether I should go with #1, but I already have a CANUSB....

Sorry. I meant that the BOM and schematics you've posted already will due for docs; you don't need to do anything step by step on my behalf. I am very much interested in a pre-flashed micro.. and would be interested in splitting the costs of parts.. and having you do the legwork ordering them.

So I am in for a #3 package setup to do RAW dumps.

Code:
nhbubba 3 dump
This is reflashable you said, no?
We can change the mode to do button mode later, no?

Cheapest/slowest shipping method works for me. It's too cold to play under the dash right now anyway.

Edit: Paypal works, right?
