wpwrakcladamw: you make reviewing your schematics a boring task00:51
wpwrakalmost nothing bad to find :-(00:51
wolfspraulgood morning everybody00:53
cladamwwpwrak, things would be all fun and be improved once discovered, but indeed. also thanks your cautiousness.00:57
cladamwwpwrak, nowadays i run Fped with *.fpd under /examples, still quite a bit unknown to play with. mostly needs geometry skills.01:00
cladamwwpwrak, need to pick a new one in m1r4 to practice.01:01
wpwrakcladamw: if you run  find /where/all/your/qi-hw/projects/live -name \*.fpd01:06
wpwrakthen you'll see all the footprints we already have. it's quite a lot.01:07
wpwraknot all are fully developed, though. e.g., some of the ones used for DIY may have the wrong surface on pads. for example, the mounting holes in labsw :)01:07
GitHub11[board-m1] wpwrak pushed 1 new commit to master: https://github.com/milkymist/board-m1/commit/89d6752a53267122d8241a5a18f887d59ab039fe01:21
GitHub11[board-m1/master] board-m1/dsv/: move dsv/ over from wernermisc/m1r4/dsv/ - Werner Almesberger01:21
cladamwwpwrak, tks for move dsv/ over, btw, do you have idea on categories for modules ?01:34
cladamwthose modules we try to gather them under /kicad-lib/modules ?01:35
wpwrakperhaps it's best to do this just like we did with components: everything in one directory. then create a virtual hierarchy via some yet-to-be-written tool.01:37
wpwraki don't have a specific hierarchy in mind yet. fped lets you combine lots of things in a single file, so you often handle what one may consider an entire category just in one file.01:38
wpwrake.g., you could conceivably have a single file that generates all DIP packages, one for all QFNs, etc. (well, there are a few exotic QFNs that escape any systematic design, but they're rare)01:39
wpwrakyou once asked about grounding the shell of the DMX receiver. according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DMX512#Electrical01:43
wpwrakwe do this right: TX should be grounded, RX should have high impedance. so if you wanted to ground the RX side, it would have to be via one of those RC nets.01:44
cladamwso one DIP.fpd can included all like resistor, capacitor, and inductors but in names as R0402, R0603, R0508, C0402, L0805 etc. ?01:45
cladamwi opened those *.fpd, they are only one package in there, but you just meant likely a dip.fpd can gather R, C, L versitile packages ?01:47
wpwrakDIP would be for Dual-In-Line parts, e.g., ancient ICs ;-)01:48
wpwrak0402 and such are in stdpass.fpd01:48
cladamw(E1.11 (DMX512 2004)) tks ! mm so m1 is correct.01:53
wpwraklooks like that. if there's a DMX expert here who disagrees, please speak up ;-)01:58
