Having battled with flicker on the new PCB for some time now I decided to build another board, to do some creative rewiring, and see what happens.
So guess what? The new board works just fine. Without modifications.
To my embarrassment I didn’t much consider that there could be some freak component or connection problem with the first board I soldered up. But that’s exactly what seems to be the case. One lives and one learns. Then one forgets.
The upshot of this all is that
1) I’ve rewritten, optimised and generally improved almost every part of the firmware trying to fix this problem.
2) I am reluctant to send out kits until I figure out what caused the flicker in the first place. Any ideas?
In the meantime I will build a couple of units and put up for sale. Enclosures shall be ordered, but won’t arrive for some 3-5 weeks. Watch this space.
And with that, a sincere thank you for continued support and patience!
