nicksydney_wpwrak: in case if you are interested to know more about battery usage for Freescale M0 http://cache.freescale.com/files/32bit/doc/white_paper/ENEFFSOLKINLSWP.pdf?elq_mid=3358&elq_cid=1369988&tid=elq_cam1097&elq=2263f4b7967342c7a84d569ab8095bb0&elqCampaignId=136907:53
wpwraknicksydney_: nice overview. but there are some more details, like how exactly you wake up. funny that LLS, the nicest compromise between low power and going to sleep wherever you want, is missing in that chart :)13:15
rohwpwrak: heho20:03
wpwrakhola !20:04
rohi just remembered idbg... did you ever do a 'generic' silabs 8051 usb board?20:04
roha friend just asked me for 'something to do i2c and connect via usb' .. with that critter you had there, that would not even need a crystal20:04
whitequarkroh: have you ever seen GoodFET?20:05
rohand be dirt cheap... what was it? 1E for that controller?20:05
rohwhitequark: sure. i got boards here if you want some20:05
wpwrakroh: well, idbg for the ben is a little more "generic" than idbg for gta0220:05
rohjust needs really expensive chips20:05
rohcompared to 'one dollar'20:05
whitequarkroh: nope, I want to test my two-layer copper-plating process on that board20:05
rohwhitequark: hehe20:05
rohwhitequark: travis left some when we visited us last year20:06
whitequarkoh you know travis?20:06
rohhe travels around the usual spaces in europe around congress sometimes ;)20:06
wpwrakroh: yes, "no crystal" is a very nice feature :) you may actually be able to get away with it also with freescale kinetis. they give you all sorts of warnings, but it may work just with the RC oscillator, even without extra tuning.20:06
rohccc congress20:06
rohwpwrak: sure. i was just wondering if there is some adafruit-or-something 5$ board around you can point me to20:07
wpwrakah no, i don't know of anything like that20:07
rohtoo bad. .oO(why not?)20:08
wpwrakbut then, making your own board isn't that hard ... especially not if it's something so simple20:08
wpwrakusb - silabs - contacts. doesn't get easier :)20:08
rohtrue. sadly i currently dont have spare time left over atm20:08
whitequarkor some  other thing with a 8051 core?20:09
wpwrakyou could even get a TQFP version and wire it manually, without a pcb ;-)20:11
wpwrakwhitequark: c8051f32[0167]20:11
whitequarkI see20:11
rohwhitequark: something with a core. hehe20:31
