Goldilocks ATmega1284p

Goldilocks Analogue – Wrap Up

This is the final item on the Goldilocks Analogue as a design and production exercise. Thank you for pledging on the Kickstarter Project page. Closed on November 19th 2015, with 124% funding. Now that the Kickstarter Pledges have been shipped, the Goldilocks Analogue is available on Tindie. I’ve been updating this post with the pre-production and […]

Goldilocks Analogue – Testing 4

Recap I’ve been working on the Goldilocks Analogue now for so long that its been the centerpiece of my coding evenings for the past 18 months. This is the first time that I’ve designed a piece of hardware, and I’ve managed to make many mistakes (or learnings) along the way, so I think that every […]

Goldilocks Analogue – Prototyping 4

Just over 6 months since the third iteration of the Goldilocks Analogue Prototyping was started, and now I’ve finished the design for a forth iteration. The Goldilocks Analogue Prototype 4 design is now finished, and I’m working out what the final bill of materials will cost to assemble into a final outcome. Testing for the […]

Goldilocks Analogue Synthesizer

For the past year, I’ve been prototyping an Arduino clone, the Goldilocks Analogue, which incorporates advanced analogue output capabilities into the design of the original Goldilocks with ATmega1284p AVR MCU and uSD card cage. Recently the design scope crept up to include two SPI memory devices (EEPROM, SRAM, FRAM), and microphone audio input. But, before […]

Goldilocks Analogue – Prototyping 3

The Prototype 4 has now been designed, read here for the next iteration. I’ve received the Prototype 4 back and now I’m testing them. Following my initial design article, and the follow up design article, I’ve put quite a lot of thought into how I can make this Goldilocks Analogue device best achieve my stated goals. Pictured is […]

Goldilocks Analogue – Testing 3

Summary I’m still working (slowly) on a new development for my ATmega1284p platform, called Goldilocks. My initial design for the Goldilocks Analogue was flawed in several ways, so I revised the design and produced a new prototype. Following up on the initial testing matched against the Stanford Analog Shield, I’m now testing against the Open Music […]

Goldilocks Analogue – Testing 2

Recap I’ve been working (slowly) on a new development for my ATmega1284p platform, called Goldilocks. My initial design for the Goldilocks Analogue was flawed in several ways, so I revised the design and produced a new prototype. Here it is: Now that the new prototype for the Goldilocks Analogue is completed, it is time to […]

Goldilocks Analogue – Prototyping 2

Introduction Following my initial design article, and the testing article, I’ve put quite a lot of thought into how I can make this Goldilocks Analogue device best achieve my stated goals. Pictured is the only Goldilocks Analogue Prototype in existence. From the testing it was clear that the MCP4822 DAC fully achieved the goals that I had […]

Goldilocks Analogue – Testing

Introduction This post follows on from the and gives some insight into the results of the first board prototype board assembled. The information will develop over the next few weeks, as I add more information and test results. I’ve built a new Goldilocks Analogue design and I have described the changes and additions. Discussion Well […]

Goldilocks Analogue – Prototyping

Last time I designed a Goldilocks board, it was because I was unhappy about the availability of a development platform that was within my reach; a tool to enable me to continue to learn about coding for micro-controllers. This Goldilocks, let us call it Goldilocks Analogue, it is not about what I think is necessary, […]

Gameduino 2 with Goldilocks and EVE

My Gameduino 2 was delivered just a few weeks ago, and I’ve spent too much time with it already. It is the latest Kickstarter project by James Bowman. James has written a Gameduino 2 Book too. Sourcecode for the below examples is located at GitHub AVRfreeRTOS lib_ft800 and the application is located at GA_Synth. Recently, I’ve used the […]

uIP on Wiznet W5200 versus W5100 on Goldilocks 1284p

I guess it is no secret, the reason why I’ve put so much effort into getting the Goldilocks 1284p board built. I was looking for a platform that would allow me to experiment with the uIP TCP/IP and UDP/IP stack with the most performance and flexibility possible while still being compatible with the huge range […]

“Goldilocks” 1284p Arduino UNO Clone

The Pozible project for Goldilocks boards is funded and closed. Pozible Goldilocks As featured in Make. Freetronics Goldilocks is now sold out. Freetronics Goldilocks But, Freetronics are considering making a new version. Please add your wish list here. Also, I’m working on a new version, Goldilocks Analogue with an integrated dual channel DAC. Now a […]
