Concept Phase – Lid Assembly Design Part 2
We are continuing the journey through lid assembly design on our Open Source Laptop project. Designing a test adapter — Layout Now we have to put all of our work in an actual hardware design. The layout of this board is straightforward, as we only have one high-speed interface to pay special attention to. The DisplayPort interface can de-skew up to 20UI per specification. UI is short for Unit Interval which is the reciprocal of the bit rate. For

Unveiling the Crucial Role of PCB Harness Design Capabilities in Multi-Board Designs
In the ever-evolving landscape of electronics, the demands for innovation and efficiency continue to push the boundaries of technology. But as technology has evolved and products have demanded more complex features, the single-board designs of yesteryears are often no longer sufficient. Enter multi-board designs, which entail multiple PCBs interconnected to function as one unit. This sophistication, while powerful, demands a robust harness design
Concept Phase – Lid Assembly Design Part 1
Welcome back to the open-source laptop project! In this update we will move one step closer to the design phase of the project. This is the first hands-on experience with one of the core components of the laptop — the display panel! We will decide which display panel to use, how we can integrate it into the lid, and we are going to design, assemble, and test a small DisplayPort to embedded DisplayPort adapter to light up the screen for the first
