Enriching the Electric Company

Fix-It Felix, Jr.

Finally got around to troubleshooting the timing circuit, and it looks like it’s up and running successfully now.  Hooray!  Turned out there were two problems: in the schematic, I had accidentally swapped a connection of the grayscale clock and the serial clock; and I had left the latch pin disconnected somehow.  I’ll need to go double-check the other board now to make sure these same errors didn’t occur there, but even if they did, I can fix it with extra wires if needed.  Regardless, it’s heartening to finally have this part of the project back under control.

Next steps could involve any of: Trying to connect this to the board itself, working on the control software, or wiring up the secondary boards.  No idea which I want to tackle first.
