Prototype Development of FPGA Based PS/2 Mouse Controlled PCB Drill Machine
In this paper, the authors present a prototype development of an electromechanical setup to perform the mouse controlled Printed Circuit Board (PCB) drilling. The soft Intellectual Proprietary (IP) core was developed to drive two stepper motors; simultaneously, to reach the drill point. The Personal System, PS/2 mouse was used to generate serial data and clock signals. The serial data packets emerging from PS/2 mouse indicates the exact location of the mouse device. The mouse was moving on a white paper; with PCB pads printed thereon.
