V5 Switch Install, Am I Understanding This Right?
V5 Switch Install, Am I Understanding This Right? –
Ok, I Have A Blue Chip, Basically I'm Making This Switch To Turn The Chip Off Connected To The GND? I'm Going To Look Further At The Switch Diagram, And Blue Chip Installation Diagrams And Am Going To Find A Way To Install It, Can Someone Fill Me In On EXACTLY How It Is Made? I Know Pros Like Charlie Can Help Me....
As I Am A Member Of Neoasic.com, I Managed To Get The Installation Diagrams, If Someone Could Manage To Produce(M?) A Diagram That Were To Show Me Making A Switch For On And Off.
Do I Have To Cut Any Tracks On The Modchip?
Wow, another switch question. You're sure are interested in switches. From what I remember ppl here were saying about the operation of the switch. You will want to ground the 3.3/3.4v point to put the chip into a "sleep mode".
No, you do not need to cut tracks. You need to cut the magic 3 chip's mclr track because it does not have a separate point for the 3v. Looking at your above diagram, it looks like you do have a separate 3v point, so this should be easy. You have to unsolder the wire for 3v point from the chip and solder it to the left pole on your switch. Solder a wire from the 3v point on your chip to the center pole of the switch, and then solder a ground wire to the right pole of the switch. The diagram should look like this:
3v from board ---> left pole of switch
3v point from chip ----> center pole of switch
ground ----> right pole of switch
This is based on heresay and I can not guarentee it will work for you. All I know and can verify is this has work on magic 3 and magic 2(red).
thanks jy96, i may not do this myself, i may get an expert electrician to do it for me, can someone tell me the functions of 3.3v and Ground? i may ask this guy to figure it out for me... thanks in advance.
