Spring Cleaning

microbox contents
I just received Nick Chernyy's Microbox as part of The Great Internet Migratory Box of Electronic Junk project.

I took the 8051 board, the 2x16 LCD, and a MAX232 level-converter chip. I then removed a healthy number of packing peanuts, swapped one of the microcontroller cases for a smaller one, and added the following:
  • Two PICs.
  • Three MSP430F2012 DIPs.
  • A 4G iPod, sans hard disk
  • Two TI CC1100 radio boards.
  • A board of ZIF sockets for PIC programming.
As is tradition, I'll be sending the box to someone on the Box Requests page within the next week or so.
