The ware for June 2018 is a TI TALP1000B. Marcan nailed it, congrats! email me for your prize.

The Ware for June 2018 is shown below.

This month we’ll start with the very zoomed in and slightly torn down view of the ware, and if nobody’s nailed it I’ll release some more contextual images throughout the month.

Special thanks to Nava for giving me this ware!

Update June 19, 2018: Looks like people are stumped by this one, so providing a little more context to see if anyone gets it…

Winner, Name that Ware May 2018

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

The NeTV2-MVP DVT1E rev shown in the May 2018 ware has 933 vias and 63 holes for a total of 996 drill hits. The closest guess for total number of drill hits was Jonathan, at 69 holes and 888 vias = 957 drill hits (39 shy of the total). Mangel was in a close second place with 84 hols and 962 vias for a total of 1046 drill hits (50 over the total). So, Jonathan’s the winner! Congrats, please email me to claim your board!

The Ware for May 2018 is shown below.

This month’s contest isn’t about naming a ware. Instead, the challenge is to guess the total amount of vias + holes on the NeTV2 PCB. The closest (or first correct) guess will get a DVT-revision of the board (same as the one shown above) as a prize! Please note: depending on your country of residence you may have to cover import duties or VAT.

At the end of this month, once the contest is over, I’ll upload the PCB source files to a public repo. The contest would be just too easy otherwise :)
