This is my home-made dongle, made almost entirely out of used parts. The at90usb162 was robbed from an xbox360 "Scene-it" IR reciever and the rest was scavanged from dead electronics I had laying around. The only new part was the pcb, which I freehanded the traces using a Sharpie.
I'm probobly going to set off the "noob" alarm here but here goes...
I would love to make my own dongle, however schematics and such are a bit beyond me. I'm wanting to utilize the at90usb646/7 due to the ability to support custom payloads, something most premade dongles can't do. I'm also rather good at soldering and a quick learner.
Can anybody see where I'm going with this?
My plea to anyone who's made a working clone, or at least knows how, where would I need to go and what would I need to learn to get myself to the point that I could build my own clone?
Or would it be possible to get a step by step construction method for a board that isn't in sch and brd formats for those of us that don't do any electrical engineering... yet.
Either would be nice, or rather, any consideration of either would be nice.
