Making a GTT Desktop Case

I was finishing a desktop case for a GTT module and wanted to demonstrate the process. First I start with a 3D print of our case design. This first photo is after initial application of some Bondo. The specific Bondo product is "Glazing and Spot Putty" which is a one part paste full of VOCs and canc...

I can't see the I2C implimentation being the cause. The outputs drive about 25mA shorted, so maybe a couple shorted outputs could account for it, but a couple nS here and there just doesn't seem like enough. As for sleep, no, they don't sleep. They can sleep when they're dead. I'm sure that the new ...

Wiseguy, While it worries me to hear about hot PICs, I have a sort of standard reply to questions like this. Hot to humans and hot to electronics are really two different things. If you can touch it at all, it probably isn't really hot. That said, I don't remember a PIC getting warm, so if anyone ca...

You are looking for this - it is the manual which describes the command set, http://www.matrixorbital.ca/manuals/LK_series/LK204-24-USB/LK204-24-USB_100.pdf but you probably don't really want it. What you want is more knowledge about how to use LCDC. That, unfortunately, just takes a little time. Ha...

Not at this time, no. We do have new versions of these displays in the lab, but I do not know the specific capabilities of them.

Does anyone else know if this is addressed in the new systems?

I think you'll be ok. The MX is not as deep and it doesn't have "enough" screw-holes, but the rails hold it in nice. It works.

The deterioration curve is steeper earlier in the life of the display. Second halflife is also 10,000 hours, but constitutes only a 25% drop in brightness (though that is just a spec and doesn't probably fit the curve). This all sounds a lot worse than it really is. In common applications, you proba...

I have a Antec case and I don't know if its "toolless", but it has slide in things for drives. I just mounted the MX unit as if it were a CD-ROM drive and its sitting there looking "normal".

I probably don't understand the issue.

Cable tie? If you have a separate fan AND a fan in the power supply, then put it in the air flow of the separate fan.

I'm sure it's not 100.000% sure, but I have every confidence in a flat blade screwdriver, a small hammer and a sharp rap (a short sharp shock, if you will) If I have to choose 2 things it is: 1 - the REAL ambient temperature (at the air intake). 2 - The total system "load" (ie: temperature at the ex...

Both a little tough. For the graphics card (assuming you mean the VPU), I recommend crazy gluing it to the BACK of the board directly behind the VPU. For the processor, well this is philosophy. You could NEVER read the temperature of the CPU fast enough to do anything about it in a catastrophic situ...

It totally depends on what you want to probe and where :o

In my computer system, I have them crazy glued to various locations on the flat sides of the probes.

Not in any direct way, no. You can repeatedly send the same character to the same location from two different fonts (one normal and one inverted) to cause it to "blink". You could also send a space character alternating with your character (using a non-proportional font would be easiest). But in eit...
