Meet the New SolderBridges

PCBs for Six new prototype SolderBridges arrived on Friday, thanks to our friends at Quartz TSL for the quick turnaround. Robs soldering skills have been put to the test soldering tiny Gyro’s and Barometers on to our IMU SolderBridge. This week we start testing and setting to work each board.

  
 

The first SolderBridge, DMX512, is working and on button press sends out DMX512 data. USB CDC is functioning sending and receiving serial data to the PC. As is the built in boot loader on all the SolderBridges we’ve powered up. Almost all the new SolderBridge have their own small ARM cortex M0 and can be used standalone, with other SolderBridges or on top of SplashBase for network connectivity/control.

Here are the six new SolderBridges :

More updates to follow. Interested in any of them, want more info? Drop us a comment to a tweet!

SplashBase Development Kit

We kicked off SolderSplash Labs as a hobby at the start of the year with a blog to talk about it, the last few months we decided to get a bit more serious. We’ve incorporated and become a limited company, have a bank account sorted, invested in component stock for a small batch and purchased a large reflow oven.

But most importantly we’ve taken the feedback from the enquiries we had about the SplashLight and created an expandable development board by splitting it in two. The SplashBase is now an expandable network connected platform which we can build upon with various add-ons, called SolderBridges. The four relays now become our first SolderBridge to plug-in to the SolderBase.

Our First prototype SplashBase and Relay SolderBridge works well and we are ready to start building them. Our plan was initially to open an eCommerce site and start selling them one by one. But then Kickstarter finally announced their UK launch and we decided to go for it! Getting on to Kickstarter, we believe, will give us the required boost to start this business. Producing a batch of PCBs and not a few at a time is a lot more cost efficient, it will give us the needed cash flow for large volume component purchasing and help us spread out the cost of tooling for production.

Our project page and video is in the KickStarter queue and we are constantly checking our email for the go ahead. As soon as that comes in I hope you will all be there to support us!
