EXCLUSIVE: New lPad prototype boasts over 30 processors !

In a shocking ploy for attention DrOffset has leaked this photo of a prototype device boasting over 30 Integrated Circuits and a dynamic LED display. This device will rival any other handheld device ever produced in the late 70s and is sarcastically known as....

The L-Pad.



Ok, April Fools. It's just my Lunetta, (and I'm not going to be calling it the L-Pad,) but here's an update on how much it rocks.

I've decided to take a certain concept as far as possible, which is that the board is also the interface. As you know a Lunetta CMOS Synth is a digital noise making tool pioneered by one Stanley Lunetta and developed into amazingly diverse implementations by the members of Electro-Music.com . I also created and maintain a Google document that details how you (yes, you) can get started building one of these fun thingamajigs.

Here's a close-up of the main section:


Total modules so far:
4x 4093 oscillators hard-wired to 4040s
4x 9039 osc
3x 4040
40106
4011
4070
4077
2x 4011
2x 4015
4040
4094
3x R/2R DAC
2x Melody Gen
Soon to be a melody gen
simple 40106 vco (YAVCO I think)
4 channel mixer (buggy, need to fix it or redo it)
The new expansion board has:
Shift registers
4006
4015
4021
4094
Mux and selectors
4051
4051
4052
4066
FlipFlops and other
4008
4027
4043
