The DM77 is ready for its official release in version 1.0. Before, here’s the last prototype version 0.5. Except maybe few value changes on some resistors, the circuit is final and will be the identical in 1.0.

Things are going well with the DM77. A new revision of the PCB is on my desk, ready for some tests.

I’m switching from KiCad 3 to KiCad 4.
While version 3 offered a simple, quite un-customizable, CSV generated BOM, version 4 now only offers a raw XML export.
As KiCad website says:
BOM generation is extensible via Python scripts or XSLT, which allows many configurable formats.

The downside is, it requires additional steps before you can actually generate a BOM. It seems a bit complicated but it’s not. Read below.
