I've been selected as a finalist for the Guthman Instrument Competition 2022!
I've been assembling parts for a new version of the GLOBE. I'm still a long ways off. But I thought I would test out the FSRs and the 16 channel multiplexers. I haven't gotten around to testing every FSR, but the one that I did test works well.
I felt unsure if the issues I was seeing with the multiplexer was due to a bad breadboard or if it was the multiplexer. So I plugged it in to the GLOBE since I made the parts modular. It turns out you never know how good these boards will be. Also, I am pretty certain that the issues with a few bleeding pins in the original have more to do with the board than my connections. I have multi-coloured pins, so I am using different colours on each multiplexer in order to keep track. I have only tested 5 so far before having to call it a day.
