1-6-13 power distribution board.

Upgrade from the standard Doepfer A-100 bus: 13 shrouded 16-pin headers, only 10.2" long. Features:
  • Complementary over-current and reverse-voltage protection: Left and right half independently protected with Polyfuses (±12V @ 0.75A, +5V @ 0.5A). PSU connectors are unprotected so downstream boards are unaffected
  • Three sets of indicator LEDs to indicate status of: left side, right side, PSU input.
  • Dual PSU Input connectors, mounted in the middle of the board for proper "star" distribution scheme.
  • Central header configured to accept 5x5 plug-in adapter module, pictured below.

So are these drop-in replacements for the Doepfer boards, then? Does it support the Doepfer CV/Gate Bus?

Yes and yes.
PSU connection: It has two sets of four 0.25" (6.35mm) male quick-connect tabs (+5V, +12V, Common, -12V), One for PSU input and the other for multiple boards.
Gate and CV: Again, it has two sets of connectors (for connecting to other distro boards) for Gate and CV signals. I used screw-machined socket connectors so you can use whatever type of connector you want to jumper to other boards - even 24AWG solid-core wire will work. The Gate and CV busses run the entire length of the board however, unlike on the Doepfer board which has jumpers to isolate the two sides.

1) How far off are these?

2) Are these going to be paired up with your power module in a kit?

There have been a few annoyances stymieing the process - suppliers forgetting to enter orders, people going on vacation without passing the work to someone else, and so on :bang: - so I can't give an exact time frame, but I'm gonna say mid- to late-September.
2) Are these going to be paired up with your power module in a kit?
Sure, why not? ;)
That's really up to the individual vendors. I've got far too much going on these days to do much by way of direct sales or even advertising (or responding to posts and emails). There are, however, many excellent vendors out there who are working hard to support and expand the modular scene and I would be quite surprised if one or more of them didn't have the same idea of a POWER pack.
