Got a quick question guys, What service/website do you guys use to make the pcbs? They are a lot in the marked, but I want true and honest fedback from the pros.

 

Btw, black pcbs are damn sexy!

I used elecrow from China.

For good comparison you can use pcbshopper.com

Looks good!

I'm so excited.

Hopefully you get all the part complete soon.

The black pcb's indeed look great.

Will you include the square plastic frame that comes with the displays so that we can make a first mounting frame out of it like Randr did? Seems like a good first quick solution.

Can't wait for the next update!

Good luck!

Best regards,

Jasper

I'll post another "preview" today evening or tomorrow.

Afm is one of my favorites and is so fu...ing beautiful. Also I will send you payment information these days. I only have very little time the next 2 days because I'm on staff training.

Yes, the original frame will be sent to you as well ;)

Oh boy, you're not pushing ;) maybe a little :D

I'm still waiting for the card-readers and the second batch of displays. In the meantime, I'm soldering as much as I can. 162 solder point for each board...

Greets,

Hi Dom,

 

do you have any PCBs left (the 9,50 euro sets)? I would like to order 3 of those shipped to The Netherlands. 

 

My screens are already on their way and I will order the STM32F4 boards from farnell. ( http://nl.farnell.com/stmicroelectronics/stm32f4discovery/stm32f407-usb-otg-discovery-kit/dp/2009276?ost=2009276&mckv=saV3cqEFi_dc%7Cpcrid%7C101994551167%7Ckword%7Cstm32f4discovery%7Cmatch%7Cp%7Cplid%7C&selectedCategoryId=&CMP=KNC-GNL-FNL-GEN-SKU-MDC&gclid=Cj0KEQiA-NqyBRC905irsrLr-LUBEiQAWJFYTqFJ6-MKRioN_7di_aFjYEaskzSHqT8Plv_RYD8sVHcaAj8Y8P8HAQ

 

The soldering looks pretty straightforward so I don't expect any problems there.  :)

 

If you don't have any unsoldered sets left. Please keep in mind I would like 3 when ordering new PCBs and parts.  ;)

Thanks.

Well done looks not so bad...

The Headers are under the STm Board!

You are not able to connect or disconnect the Cable to/from the DMD.

Only when you remove the STm Board!

And the STm Board is not 100% connected.

Jepp, exactly! It works, I tested it, and the stm32 is connected correctly but ONLY if you remove the cable relief. I did that and it works like a charm. Second revision of my board will have several changes.

This is how it looks like...

Functionality: 100%

Design: maybe 20%

I'm very sorry for this faux pas, it shouldn't have happened.

How could this happen?!

Just kidding, as long as it works I'm in for it.

Still looks the bits!

Dom,

 

To be honest. I really don't care if the PCB design is "flawed" as long as the functionality is 100%.  :)

So my request for the 3 PCBs still stands. If you don't have any left I'll have to wait until you order V2.   ;)

 

I will probably order a few V2s as well when you get those made (I liked the idea of unclesash with regard to the extra "topper"-connections on the PCB by the way).

Thank you for your support and trust in my work! I appreciate that very much.

Bitmind, you're in the first batch, I have some boards in spare.

Greets,

Dom

For me, if your PCB is 100% functionality and if is " just " the HUB75 connector can't be removed if the card is placed, is not a problem ;) 

 

The main is the STM32F4 is securely fixed on the PCB.

Oh yes, the board is absolutely secure. It's only the hubs that are causing a little trouble.

As said before, it is functioning as expected.
