Pease Project Page

Pease, second edition (Project #1, March 16)

This kit is the very first Boldport Club project. It's a tribute to Bob Pease, a legendary analogue designer, with the circuit based around the LM331, 'voltage to frequency converter' that he designed. All the components for the circuit in Figure 20 of the datasheet: light intensity to frequency converter are provided. Alternatively, surface-mount components can be used (not provided in the kit).

Boldport #1, Pease - scanlime:008

Contributed by @scanlime on Feb 19, 2017

Quote from YouTube: I jumped at the opportunity to get hardware in the mail from another like-minded art hacker. In this video I’ll unbox the kit, assemble it delicately, and finally I’ll have to make some squiggles and beeps with it.

Boldport Club Project 1 'Pease' using SMD components.

Contributed by @Loph on Jan 13, 2017

I subscribed to the Boldport Club in March 2016, just in time to get the Cordwood Puzzle. The Pease kit was sold out in the store by then, so I was happy to be able to get the bare board as part of the ‘Just less than perfect bundle 1’. :) Here’s the imgur album that I made during the build and a video of it functioning:

LEAP#276: Variable Speed Runway LEDs (inspired by the Pease)

Contributed by @tardate on Dec 1, 2016

in the vein of “now I have a hammer, everything looks like a nail” …I found a new application of the LM331! I was introduced to the LM331 when I built the Pease project. I wanted to drive some variable-frequency LED effects without taxing the MCU. Many ways of doing this, but my solution uses the LM331. This is just a small part of a larger project (hence my desire for no processor overhead). My full build notes are in the LittleArduinoProjects repo. Sneak peek:

LEAP#256: dialing back the #BoldportClub Pease #1 to a low-frequency light-dependent blinky.

Contributed by @tardate on Oct 15, 2016

dialing back the #BoldportClub Pease #1 to a low-frequency light-dependent blinky. I joined the Boldport Club rather late, and missed out on the original Pease kit (now out of stock). But I did manage to snaffle the PCB in sale of “Just Less the Perfect” boards. My full build notes are in the LittleArduinoProjects repo.
