Really haven’t forgotten about the re555et, but this dammed component shortage is stifling. :/

But it has evolved to a different product where I’m using the keyboard to switch stuff. I’m about to send a test unit to a user any day now. :)

An earlier version of the board. Not sure if I’ll keep doing QFN for the MCU.

Glad to know it is still ongoing :thumbup: Yeah this chip shortage has squatted a lot of my projects as well :cry:

None, it uses the 16MHz output from the Shifter. The STE booster uses the master 32Mhz clock.

@Badwolf I have fixed the posts, not really sure what going on there. I must have edited your post rather than quoting it :lol: :roll:
