Hi guys, this winter I had some free time so I decided to start learning about electronics, even though what I am studying (mechanical engineering) doesn’t formally require it.
I thought that starting with something interesting would help me learn faster; so I downloaded altium and I slowly built libraries, schematics and pcb layout of VESC 6.4 .
The whole process, expecially the library production, took quite some time to accomplish; for this reason I thought it would be nice to share my work with the experienced guys, which don’t need to learn the basics.
Open hardware but… To respect Ben Vedder decision about not sharing the gerbers -with the goal of keeping the project in the hands of experienced guys to avoid poor quality vescs- these are the conditions to get the files :
- you have electronics experience and have some open-source contribution records
- if you plan to sell the hardware you agree to donate a fixed % to Vedder
The documentation that I will share includes everything: gerbers, schematics, libraries, pcb source files and enclosure 3d model (in the works…).
