I just created few pages that summarise the details about this project here. Also has details on the board I’m coming up with and how to communicate with it once a final version will be available, for people interested to buy one.
Seems the boards should be finally here (well, postman left a note in the door to collect the parcel tomorrow). Bad news is that my Atmega16 chips I order weeks back are still on the way here… Seems is no way to get my prototype board completed till next week as is public holiday here on Friday and I doubt anyone will move a finger from tomorrow till Monday. This sucks!
On a better note, had to order a batch of Atmega644P instead of Atmega32 chips as is cheaper at the moment (?!?!?). This may be a good thing as it have 2 times more memory (RAM, Flash, EEPROM plus another hardware UART). If this continue to be the case, probably will continue using this chip instead.
