Ok this is AtomInvoice for tindie sellers. Allows you to load a order and create a invoice in seconds. Im already working on Version 2 which will be way more awesome!
The basics is you edit the JPG image included and the config.txt to suite your needs then load the app. When ready you enter the ORDER number and press GET… The invoice will be automatically generated on the left and you can print it using the Print button.
Thats pretty simple for a V1 and helped me understand a lot. As a note there is no JSON parser used. This is all custom parsing code. No external libs or crap to install.
Okay so i decided to go ahead and show my crazy but useful and actually unorganized organization skills :) Here is how everything looks untouched. (when i say everything, i mean the parts i sell or use to make PCBs to sell, no where near EVERYTHING)
Lets get into this now. All blue/clear bins except 3 are 6 3/8″ x 5″ x 2 3/4″. Small when you think about it but what they hold will amaze you. Larger Blue/Clear bins are about the same Height/Width but double the length.
Inside the bins are a wealth of parts. Ill show a image and name it. I wont name each part because this isn’t inventory just a glimpse of my world.
Wire Connectors – Everything i use for creating custom wiring to test/build/program
Inductors – Just that :)
Capacitors 2 = Barely used and mostly Aluminum SMT caps.
IC’s – Used Regularly (Charge IC, USB2UART IC etc)
Capacitors – All regularly used caps 100nf , 1uf, 10nf, 20pf etc
MCUs – so many, ARM, AVR, CPLD, FPGA, PIC, SOC etc…
LEDs – Normal indication to IR transmitters and receivers.
Oscillators and Resonators – from 32khz to 48MHz
OSH PCBs – Just about all the stuff i sell… minus some new pcbs :)
PCBs are all unsoldered. Using this system allows me to cancel out a PCB and not have wasted parts. Saves me tons of money and having to order parts a lot.
Resistors – just about any value here… (Not really but close enough lol)
Wifi and RF – NRF24L01 to ESP8266
Connectors – From Battery (lipo/coin) to USB & Probe connectors (A LOT)
Headers – Female and Male Single In Line style (more coming this week)
Headers – Right Angle Single in Line, Double row male/female , small pitch etc…
Unused header bits.. all types!
As you can see i have a ton of parts to sift through and surprisingly this is a organized system and i can find any part in a matter of seconds.
I would love to hear your thoughts on how i have this set up and any questions you may have :
I wish i had enough free time to empty bins and draws to show all the sweet stuff but the day has only 24 hours :) Thanks!
New product! The SX1509 is a 16 bit io ecpander using the I2C interface.
My boards are chainable and come preset to use 3.3v input for pins but can be changed by cutting a couple traces.
Ok i have a new idea here. Its a Shield/Host for Arduinos. Arduino Uno style shield or Arduino Pro Mini Host. Allows for communication via UART and Programming of Arduino or ESP8266 via FTDI port. Also has a 1.5A @ 3.3v buck DC-DC style power supply. Select-able 5v or 3.3v Arduino Mini Pro power. Buffer for UART to level convert the UART signals in case its set to a 5v system.
To program ESP using FTDI is simple. DO NOT CONNECT ARDUINO!
Jump using 2 wires D3 to TX and D2 to RX and you can now program via FTDI. Be sure to set to FLASH mode and reset.
P.S. All arduino pins from Uno and Pro Mini are connected so its also a breakout!
