Kicad is the EDA software we use for all our projects. All the computers in our lab use GNU/Linux (either debian or Mint LMDE). The kicad version in the debian repository is from the stable kicad branch so it is quite old (Nov 2014) and missing many useful features. After manually compiling kicad for several months we decided to write a script to automatically generate a proper debian package and make the packages available to the public.
GGLABS and our good friends at FLIRC will be sharing a booth at the East Bay Mini Maker Faire on October 19th. If you plan to attend the faire stop by our booth to check out the features and ease of use of FLIRC and other miscellaneous GGLABS projects. We will be also showing some projects still in development stage that have not been published yet.
We are proud to announce that gglabs was chosen by the LCD Smartie team to design a custom USB interface for text displays specifically designed for LCD Smartie. The result of our collaboration is the LCD Smartie official hardware. Beside purchasing the most advanced USB based LCD interface on the market, your money will serve good cause as part of the profits will go to the LCD smartie developers.
Besides the numerous bug fixes here is a list of the important changes since the release 3.2.0 (list taken from SDCC website):
Our staff has been working with Freescale to negotiate the release of S08 header files under a free software license to allow their inclusion in the SDCC distribution.
After more than one year of work and the superstar effort of Jim Trudeau at Freescale we finally received the package under the BSD 3-clause license.
The SDCC team has been quite busy lately and they managed to put out yet another great release of the best free software compiler for microcontrollers. Version 3.2.0 adds S08 support (making our staff incredibly happy) and revives the support for gbz80.
