My company is a well established professional R&D electronics company based in Adelaide S.A.
Not sure if this is the right place to post but thought we would as we use the PCB service and are happy with the support.
About a year ago we developed a product for a client that connected to their company intranet and allowed factory automation and supervision via web browser interface.
It was based on a Microchip PIC24F and used their open source TCP/IP stack.
The board was only 50mmx50mm and proved very successful.
The unit had 8 I/O pins for driving relays and detecting switches as well as a few A/D.
The webpage was served from a USB thumb drive and the board had USBOTG master support.
We then further upgraded the design to use the Microchip WiFi module which meant there was no need for a wired connection.
Unfortunately the company that ordered this design went belly-up (left a lot of unpaid bills!) due to poor management and now We have a really neat design with no home!
Would this be something worth investing in to get 100 units made either wired or WiFi.
Whats the interest like?
We dont normally market we usually just do proof of concepts and design.
