SMD November is all about building our own Bus Pirate v3. The bus pirate v3 is a like a leatherman for electronics protocols. “Talk to 1-wire, I2C, UART (async serial), SPI, JTAG, MIDI, LCDs, PC keyboards, and a ton of generic serial devices from a terminal.” In SMD October workshop we showed you can program AVR processors [...]

This workshop uses a readily available prototype board to construct a bare bones Arduino Leonardo compatible microcontroller using off the shelf components. The soldering will be more complex than the September workshop. The microcontroller has 32 pins but the pin spacing is the same as the 555 timer used in the I (heart) SMT board. [...]
Last night’s workshop was a great success, look for more to come. Here is the assembly video showing how to hand solder 0805 SMD components and the 8 pin SOIC component.
SMT is the way of the future and the future is at VHS. As a follow on to our SMT talk in August, this September we’re hosting a number of SMT build nights. Surface mount soldering is easier than through hole soldering, come along and see how easy it is. Join us on September 12th [...]
WHO: Anyone, member or not, who has done chain in the past or would like to learn the basics. Experienced maillers are of course invited down to chat and show off. WHAT: Come hang out with us and make some chainmail. Don’t know how? No problem! We’ll show you the basics, which are applicable to [...]
What: On August 18th VHS will be hosting two one fantastic events – the Hackers on a Train Workshop Tour and Super Happy Hacker House 23. Hackers on a Train Workshop Tour 2012 Mitch Altman, Jimmie Rodgers, and maybe others will be visiting Vancouver at the tail end of the North American hackerspace tour. They are [...]
