I first found out about STMs back around 1985 when I was working on SDI

had a side discussion with the presenter and it was evident that a
person could make one of these as a home project. I never followed up
on it but thought about it from time to time.

design details in an openly available design so you can build your own
See the impressive pictures they got with their version.
I am getting that itch again.
