I was bored today, so I figured what the heck, why don't I create a alternate version of the meeblip board!
The MeeBlip Nano.
* Use surface mount components to increase component density (and allow for nested components)
* Offer ALL features of the full-size MeeBlip (8 knobs, 20 switches in a 4x5 matrix)
* Switches and Knobs on a separate board (via a 20-pin header)
* Size no larger than 2"x3.5" (fits inside of an Altoids tin!)
I'm thinking of a separate board that nests on top of the main board with the switch matrix and knobs attached. I'll probably use trim pots and surface mount switches for the controls. The Power, Midi and Audio out will all be connected via a mini-din connector mounted to the side of the Altoids tin. A splitter cable will split out to each connection type.
Here's my quick mockup of the board so far:
So far I've replaced all the resistors and ceramic capacitors with 1206 SMD components (the only SMD size I've used before, and not very hard to work with). I've also connected all the digital and analog pins to one 20-pin header. I've still got some work to do, so it's kind of messy at the moment.
