Re: [4U/LW] Alan & Friends, a take on the Turing Machine

Oh, yes and no: I decided to make a last revision with minor fixes.
I just have to order a new prototype, but I'll wait a bit for my beta-tester to build it!

So maybe in September PCBs will be available (holidays are almost here, so I don't know if I'll have the time to build it during August).

Re: [4U] Outsie, a basic output utility

Have you measured the SNR? I’ve heard the Befaco configuration can be noisy and if this is based off that, wondering if you’ve come across any issues? You also mention a reference to Douglas Self’s book.. is there is a specific Figure diagram you are referring to? I didn't measure the SNR, since I ...

Re: [4U/LW] Alan & Friends, a take on the Turing Machine

So there are people interested, it's great. I don't really know how to proceed for the next step, I would feel bad about selling a board in its current state (some fixes are required)... So I think I'll make another prototype to test another board revision. I'll let you know when those are available...

Ah, that's so sool! Great work, as always.
Waiting for LW's take on panel design for this.

I'd guess full SMD?
Will you release the schematics/parts of it for educational purposes? That would be great.

Re: [4U] Outsie, a basic output utility

Thats awesome thanks for sharing. Where did you print the PCB? Did you just do one? Well, there are many many manufacturers online that will do that for a small fee. Many of those are from China, because they have cheaper prices. If I had to manufacture a bigger batch, I'd try to find it here in Fr...

What are those switch caps? Do they feel rubbery? At the moment I use some from NKK, but I'm not satisfied with the feeling/finish.

Re: [4U] Outsie, a basic output utility

Can you normal it so a single input goes to both outputs? No, banana jacks do not allow this, unfortunately. You would need a switch on the front panel... For the panels, I usually send him a .pdf with panel graphics and holes markings (which is in the repository). I use black only, but color is po...

[4U] Outsie, a basic output utility

I wanted a simple audio interface which could drive headphones in LW format, so here is one. It is a fairly classic and uninteresting design; I looked up schematics here and there, you know, those that everybody uses. It is based on Befaco Output. Anyway, since it was my very first PCB design, it wa...

Re: CGS514

I'd say you don't loose any customer when releasing a schematic. Some people would not buy your board anyway, if the schematic remains closed. However, if this is DIY, you can't just expect people to build exactly the same way every time. And that's a little bit stupid to say "hey, I gave you instru...

Re: CGS514

Elby's choice not to publish schematics is based on their view of how the DIY landscape has evolved; I won't try to repeat it here, but it's an interesting point of view vis a vis 'traditional' DIY that was heavily reliant on schematics. That's a topic for a different thread. Actually, I'd be curio...

Re: Switch types!

I mostly order NKK and C&K from Mouser. More expensive, I know (not that much actually), but they have series with (very) similar actuator and bushing sizes/shapes (bats FTW), so when I can't find the switch with one brand, I search the other brand catalogue. I don't know if it's related to their bu...
