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:
Congratulations once again to bdring who will receive a XK-1 development kit for this great project!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.
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).
