Just got a nice email from Far Circuits...they are sending me samples of an updated PCB design for interfacing the AMQRP DDS-60 with a PICAXE 28x2 in an RF-friendly PCB. I had to open up some holes and fix some ground clearances. They had to fix some off-center etching issues from the previous design. If these work out, I will definitely send them an order for a full etch of boards in the hope to make a few of them.
My next big project on the DDS front is an RF-friendly interface for the EIM377 DDS controller. For the un-informed, the EIM377 is one of the AD9850-based DDS oscillators that have been selling for prices as cheap as $5 to $10. I bought four of them to play with. As my previous entry indicates, I was able to interface the EIM377 with the PICAXE 28x2. I did add a encoder interface to demo at the VWS club meeting, but it was taken apart again for a new mechanical layout.
I will forward new photos as the units are coming in for construction.
