Custom parts and enclosures

Portlet Enclosure

If you don't want to purchase and injection molded case, here are the STL files which can be 3D printed for the case enclosure

Bottom enclosure

The bottom half of the Portlet Enclosure in case you would like to 3D print it yourself

Top enclosure

The top half of the Portlet Enclosure for those who want to 3D print it

Schematics

Eagle Files for Linkit Controller board

These files were created in Eagle CAD

Gerber Files for Linkit Controller Board

Gerber files for ordering the board. I would recommend using the provided Eagle files to generate these using whatever settings you are familiar with though.

Power Board Eagle files

These are the Eagle CAD files for creating the power board of the Portlet

Gerber Files for Power Board

These are the Gerber files. I would recommend creating your own Gerbers from the Eagle files to make sure the settings are correct for your board manufacturer

Assembly instructions for Linkit Portlet Controller board

Suggested steps and pictures for assembling the Linkit Portlet Controller board

Assembly instructions for Portlet Power board

These instructions are for assembling the Arduino version of the Portlet but the first section covers assembling the Power Board which is the same as for the Linkit version

Code

Project codes for Portlet

Here is a collection of code sets created in the Arduino IDE to control the Portlet for various projects such as making your own yoghurt, brewing beer, a safety device for your soldering iron, etc.

Testing Code

This is my go-to code for making sure all the wiring and functionality in the Portlet is correct
