Don't quote the end of the year as a promise. I am hopeful, but these projects are tough. They are so complicated, it is hard to accurately guess at a timeline. We are making very good progress everyday, but there is still a lot to do.
As far as specs for the Little Rosie......here is what I think will happen although nothing much is being done on this until we get the B17 functional.
1. It looks like it should do a couple thousand watts.
Probably going to be 120V only. It takes a whole lot more parts to do split phase and I doubt we have room. A 2000 watt split phase inverter is going to be too small to run many 120/240VAC loads anyway. It will be stackable in series or parallel or both.
I expect to have 12/ 24 and 48V units, but am not sure how much room we have for transistors. A 12V unit takes 4 times as many DC fets as a 48V unit. We may not have enough room? I haven't tried to figure that out yet. I am working on thee Barcelona.
Did I ever tall you all how I came up with the name Barcelona?

No worries. I have a 2K Modified that still works fine. I can wait. Specs sound good, however. Perhaps a 12V version would fit in a Classic case? That would be cool. The inverter and classic mounted side by side, matching.

So here we have boB using the output of a B17 Power Module to send a msg with Morse Code using some Edison Bulbs..... :) Can you decode it?

Not very easily - I pretty much forgot all my code after I passed the 20 wpm test !
and I have to say it is easier to do it by sound - those lights make it tougher .

I caught boB tweaking a B17 power module, 55" O-scope on the one side and a bunch of light bulbs on the other. Old school meets new school! Hey boB, say something with those lights! :)

Robin,

In May you said you might be able to nail down the timeline for Rosie and Barcelona by now.  Is that possible yet?


Waiting patiently.

Thanks
