IP1 and IP2 are input/power protection, I think, and should be either a 10 Ohm resistors or ferrite beads (I think!!) Maybe AlanP can comment on this?

Edit: as AlanP stated on the first page of the thread, the omit resistors should be left free, and not be wired over. So no connection instead of 0 ohms.
I used ferrite beads in my build, seems to work fine.

Btw in case anyone has any spare 258 boards/ panels i would gladly take them off your hands for a couple of beers, cheers!

Built one allready and I love it but I’ve never had my own boards made before and I’m lusting for another one!

I just whacked some ferrites in there. Deliberately open-ended :)

Hey, AlanP,
If I want to use MMBFj201s in the 258, should I still measure for IDSS of .8-1.1? I now measured 40 of them, and none really came close :/

I just tried a couple of random ones, and they seemed to work okay. They're cheap enough to risk a couple :)

Okay, than that is what I will do. I hope my adaptors still survive some changes, after like 40 heating cycles :eek: :lol: Thanks for the quick answer. Now I just need to wait for my backordered THAT340s...... :doh:

I did the same thing, then I called them and they told me it would be months until they would have it in stock...

Oh. They did not tell me THAT ( :mrgreen: ) in the mail contact I had with them :hmm: I think I need to write them another mail, maybe I can cancel the order and get some money back. Thanks for letting me know....

Edit: funny thing is that their online shows them to be in stock... :mad:

Nice!

Here's an example of the kind of linear fm response that you can enjoy once you've built it :)
