SimpleUI – A Basic User Interface

The Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology Amateur Radio Club informed us they were launching Faraday on a High Altitude Balloon in April/May 2017. We wanted to help out by developing a user interface to use for their mission. Out of this effort came SimpleUI, a no-frills user interface built to satisfy a need and showcase the Read more about SimpleUI – A Basic User Interface[…]

Evolution of Faraday

We’ve come a long way with Faraday and it’s evolution has been fun to see. The concept of Faraday began at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, NY in 2010 while Brent and I were Electrical Engineering students. Deeply invested in K2GXT, the RIT amateur radio club, we were unsatisfied with what amateur radio technology Read more about Evolution of Faraday[…]

Faraday PCBA's Rev D1 from PCB:NG in anti-static bags

Faraday Rev D1 Test Batch Build

On Saturday December 10th we received a shipment of the first 12 Faraday Revision D1 PCBA’s from PCB:NG. This was a test batch to make sure the entire order was OK. This is a relatively complex build and double-checking now could save us a lot of headache down the road. If you are interested you Read more about Faraday Rev D1 Test Batch Build[…]

Faraday Rev D1 – Changes from Rev B

Rev B Faraday units were our last OSHpark boards. Purple, hand assembled, and in small prototype quantities. The goal of Rev B was to test out a few key improvements like a completely new power supply design and an integrated 100Ω to 50Ω balun, making the changes before a production run. As shown below there Read more about Faraday Rev D1 – Changes from Rev B[…]
