Knops Mini PCBs ready with new features!
The Knops Mini, a macropad of which almost 200 units were sold in less than a week on Massdrop, is currently in production. The PCB, which was designed well before the drop started, has been improved by adding a few features:
This PCB is basically version 1.1 of the Knops Mini. It can do everything that was advertised during the drop + a few new things that you can ignore if you don't want to use them.
Below you will see a few potato-pictures of the new PCBs. Maybe I will make better pictures when I have them in my hands myself.
The expected delivery time was the end of March 2018, but it looks like I may be early by 1 or 2 months. All components of the Knops Mini are expected to be delivered around 24th of december for QA inspection.
- Added extra hardware functionality to the audio speaker. This means that you can now play two sounds simultaneously with only the speaker that's built in!
- Added a fuse to remove any chance of burning your computer usb port.
- Added proper trace to the reset line of the MCU.
- Added a hardware identification circuit that can tell the software if you are using a new or old PCB. Anyone that ordered the Knops Mini will receive the new PCB.
