|1) Fully populated board with everything up and running. Since this is my first circuit board ever made|
and my first venture into advanced electronics, I'm very proud to see it functioning properly!
It was a broken ULN2803A that was the problem with the light matrix.
Very satisfied with that little bit of knowledge, as this now means that all parts of the hardware has been checked and verified. Now it's simply a matter of fine-tuning everything and create, solder and connect the final cabling.
Exiting times to say the least! :D
