    So, I just built the Wiip based on the Gerb files the Wiip team released.

    For those of you that know a little about electronics it's not something special.

    But, I didn't put a DB25 connector, since it's quite big and makes the modchip bulky. Instead it's better to make the ??90S2313 removable, so you can put it in your programmer whenever it needs reprogramming.

    So, let's begin with my awful quality pics.

    These are the parts we are going to use/ An AT90S2313 with its base, a crystall 4MHz, 2 22pF capacitors, 4x 220 ohm resistors and a board to solder them there.

    I also used a 1N4148 diode, a 100nF capacitor and a few pins

    So, the Wiip completed is like this. I tried to make it as compact as possible

    In this pic, I use a pac of cigarretes to compare the sizes
    [​IMG]
    The modchip is about 5X5 cm

    Here is the back view of the modchip. Nothing special.

    Here is the modchip with my development board

    And the back view of the dev board

    That's all. Now, if we only had the code.....


    Edit:

    Well, since I have my home-made dev board for avrs, I don't need a programmer, but I wanted to test if I could make the cheap SP12 programmer that is used for the Chiip.

    See, AT90S2313 needs at least 4 Volts to operate (for -10PI 2313s) and from the LPT port you can have with the SP12 programmer 3.7V. Also, the SP12 programmer, in order to work with the AT90S2313, it needs a crystall 4MHz and 2 capacitors 22pF or 33pF.

    So, I made it just to check it out and it workds flawlessly!!!

    For the diagram, you need the first in this site: Programming a spider's brain

    Also, from there you can download the program you'll use to upload the code to the microcontroller.

    So here are the pics from the SP12 programmer for the AT90S2313:

    I cut off the LPT connector from a printer cable which I don't need any more
    [​IMG]

    The components that you'll solder from behind are 9 resistors, 3 capacitors, one crystall and the base for the microcontroller.
    [​IMG]

    It's a mess, but I did that because I wanted everything to fit inside the connector

    [​IMG]

    The base for the microcontroller is fitted above the plastic casing. I opened holes so that its pins can go through the casing.

    And here is the Wiip with the LPT programmer.

    That's all

    LOL!!!

    I built the AVR dev board back in 99, when I was in college and I didn't have the money for the official ATMEL AVR dev board.

    But it is so good that I still use it in my job.

    So, do we know when the Wiip team will release the code?

    Yeah, i thought it was supposed to be an open source modchip. So where's the source?

    Also... why do you have a pack of cigarettes? That stuff kills ya. (Shame on you)

    hey. lets not get into the smoking kills arguments , enought on here already.

    BTW panther_512. congrats on the build. LOOKS good..

    if anyone is interested , Jaycar in australia sells a AT90S2313
    http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?I...eMax=&SUBCATID=

    Not to knock the wiip , but im building a chiip.

    uC AT90s2313 is obsolete...(and no more manufactured), use ATtiny2313 instead.

    What do you think the odds of tcniso selling just their PCBs would be?
