It’s been a long time in the making but I’ve finally put the final touches on my newest revision of QuinLED! This makes it version 2.6 rev 1.00. Let’s check it out!
This post is part of a series
Video about the new board
To test the new design I decided to make a video about me soldering and testing one. It’s about 30 minutes long, but I show you some tips & tricks and take you along through the whole process. This video doesn’t replace the soldering tutorial perse but some of you might find it interesting anyway.
DirtyPCB Direct Order link
Most of you will want to use the direct DirtyPCB order link. This gets you 10x 5×5 boards which in turn are 20 QuinLED dimmers. With each having 2 channels that would make a total of 40 channels!
Click here to order the boards. Doing so also gives me a small kickback so that’s appreciated!
I often get asked if I don’t have a few boards to spare, no, no I don’t. I often use my boards in my own projects, throughout my home and also during workshops, so nothing to spare.
Still, I understand that you probably won’t need 20 boards, but then again, looking at the price it’s only ~12$ to get the boards anyway, just don’t use them all or give them to a friend! The other components you need all come in lower amounts (such as 5) so I think that would be the minimum to build.
Fritzing source files
As always if you’d like to order the boards somewhere else, you can download the fritzing files and gerber files here.
If you decide to use the files to make your own work, that’s fine but a link back to here would be appreciated!
This board design will be the last one for a while. As far as I’ve been able to test, everything is working now and as far as the design goes everything seems to be in the right spot and the trace thickness is better then ever allowing the highest power to run through them of any of my designs.
