Anyone building a wireless display out of your Microview?

Post by doobie » Mon Sep 22, 2014 7:22 am

I was thinking of making a wireless display using Xbee's, but I hate reinventing the wheel, I was hoping to find an eagle file for the microview and design a small board that could be battery powered.

That has the eagle file for the board, but what if I wanted to make a new board to connect to the microview, is there a library for that which has the pins sized/labeled? Sorry still new to eagle/doing my own PCBs.

I have a PCB that has connection to an Xbee, 5v to 3.3v regulator and lipo charger. Will be adding to the circuit a battery gauge, vibrator and one or two push buttons.

Hi doobie,

The USB programmer's eagle file has a MicroView foot print and pins labeled. The github link is here

I've interfaced mine to an RN-XV, exactly the same pinout as an XBee but does Wifi instead. Pretty neat.

Edit: If you end up making boards, I'd be interested in one or two!
