LittleBen some updates

The picture gallery for LittleBen has been added to the site. Also new options for buying kits and build module are available now. New boards and panel are in stock, this time without the serial numbers (see picture)

LittleBen: Firmware on Github

The firmware for the LittleBen is on Github. This is the first release and does what it has to do, be a master clock a sending reset signals. With this release I started to think about other versions and new functions.

the thought is to release a 8 output random triggers firmware.

And as for new functions on the current LittleBen firmware is to use the start input as Clock in and Reset In. Also a possibility to use the outputs more individual. Let’s see what time going to bring. for now the working version for the LittleBen can be found on Github.

I’m still thinking about releasing the files for the PCB’s but it would be nice to at least get some of the R&D cost back before I do.

This new thing I call LittleBen. It has one simple task and that’s to be the master clock.
