EDIT:
What micro is the code I put on the repo for? I'm looking at the dsPIC30F2010 datasheet and the I/O makes no sense. PORTB is supposed to have 5 pins but I see 8 assignments in the code?
Here are the schematic and the pcb files. I don't think these are the source - just the output?

Files are zipped since they would not upload any other way

Processor is dSPIC30F4011, for the AC controller as well as the IGBT-based DC controller

That would explain the discrepancy. Both the wiki and the first couple pages of this thread reference the 2010. I'll switch datasheets then, thank you.

EDIT:
Ugh, eschema won't open the .sch file you posted, I'm a KiCAD guy! Is the free version of EAGLE worth using?

EDIT2: EAGLE doesn't open it either...what are you guys using?

EDIT3:
Opened the files in designspark, they seem to be a little bit of a mess. are those the latest we have? I have a bunch of floating components I don't understand the connections for.

I have not opened the .sch files for a few iterations.

Paul - what software and what rev did you use? or are you using?

Ya, there's a new board that has voltage monitoring and CAN, etc. Is that what you mean? I know some people in Sweden redid the schematic so it wasn't just for converting to a PCB, but for people reading and understanding it. I can't attach it here since it's over 1Mb.

Umm .. Your welcome.

I also did it to make sure it works for my car .. or my son's car, I guess

You did all the hard work of the design!

Paul - wehzeh was asking what package you used to create the .sch file that I have. I guess I should write that down as well!

Yes, if that's the latest and greatest then it's precisely what I want! this is a good chance for github practice for you dear sir! You should do the following:

1) Make github account.
2) Make a branch of the repository I started.
3) Add the new schematics and delete/rename the old one.
4) Merge the new branch.
5) I'll approve it and it's official.

...or PM me for my e-mail address and I can handle it! Either way is fine.

My overall goal is to get testing and documentation all caught up with where development really is. Again, the available resources really undersell just how mature this project is. I don't want people missing out because they have to sort through hundreds of forum pages to get good info. Once the repo looks solid enough, i'll start trying to update the wiki too.

EDIT:
bump?
