A Monitored Power Supply for Clixx

This post describes a very simple 3.3V regulated power supply for Clixx based projects - what makes it interesting is on-board support for monitoring both voltage and current as well as providing a regulated power source. The board is designed to be connected to a standard Clixx TwinTab analog…

All Coming Together

This is just a short post to show off some new Clixx.IO related components I've been working on over the past few weeks. Board Designs I recently received some PCBs that I'd sent off for fabrication a while ago. On the left you can see the MCP23008 board compared…

Release the Baby!

I've recently been contacted by a friend with a request to help design and implement the hardware for a race timing system for his local swim club. I jumped on the chance, it's a good opportunity to test the Clixx.IO system for real world prototyping and gives me a…

Modular Clixx.IO Docking Stations

Although my initial design for an external dock for Clixx.IO has been very useful I've found I need a little bit more flexibility with a wider range of host devices. To that end I've come up with a new design which is a bit smaller but allows you to…

16 Key Keypad TwinTab

This post describes how to use I2C peripherals with the Clixx.IO system. Although it focuses on using the Raspberry Pi as a host most of the concepts apply to other microcontrollers as well. It will describe how to set up I2C functionality on the Raspberry Pi, build a Clixx…

Some Corrections

My recent posts in the introductory Clixx.IO series contained some minor errors that caused the designs to be incompatible with the official Clixx.IO components. I've updated the posts with correct designs. The posts in the series are: Six Slot TwinTab Dock for Clixx.IO * Homebrew Clixx.IO TwinTab…
