Project Of The Month Winner - March 2010 - Bdring

I am glad to announce that our first project of the month on XCore goes to bdring for his amazing XMOS CNC Laser Engraver Controller.

An overview of the project as described by bdring is as follows:
This project is a Laser Engraver Controller. It is a nice fit for the XMOS. This type of controller is almost always done with a high end FPGA or DSP. XMOS is a good replacement option for those devices and is ideal for an open source project because of the low cost of entry and the familiar C like development language.

The project is detailed on this web site, and the laser itself is also an open source design detailed here.
Congratulations once again to bdring who will receive a XK-1 development kit for this great project!

Looking towards April, please submit your nominations to the main POTM thread here (please ensure criteria are met detailed in this post if you wish to be considered).

That project sure deserved it if you ask me. Neat thing also is that he can connect that extra XK1 to the one he already has.

On of the great things about offering an XK-1 as a prize - if you win more than once, you can combine your processing power! :-)
