This board is really dense populated! you made a great job!

I have already changed OTC pads size to 0805, i have had to remove some vias, and voltage resistors may not be easy accesible, placed that way between tall components, but i think it is done.

Thanks. Smile

Your board is clearly improving, but here are a few things (in no particular order):

  • Your silk lines are way too thin to be produced as specified. OSH Park or the fab will automatically thicken them for you, but I prefer to thicken them myself (for full control). The worst offender is the marking “PDR” – I suspect that this may not be legible after thickening. I don’t remember how thin OSH Park goes and I can’t find it on the specs page right now: http://docs.oshpark.com/services/two-layer/ Maybe someone else can help. Maybe I normally use approximately 6mil minimum? I’m not certain at the moment.
  • I still don’t think that the board is setup well for a Zener mod. If you’re still not clear on the Zener circuit maybe someone will throw up a quick diagram at some point. Clearly Zener compatibility is not required – it’s just something to think about.
  • R2 looks suspiciously close to the MCU for a stock programming clip to fit. R1 is definitely OK, the clip doesn’t extend into that area.
  • Version numbering seemed to stop at v5 where the the driver’s “H1” designation just started getting extra letters added to it? I suppose that’s related to the bypass hole.

Still fine, still on a break. One day I’ll catch up with you folks! previous wight catchup Wink

Thank you too! it is improving thanks to all of your help.

I going to reply in the same order:

  • I didn’t know, i’ve took a look at a v003 I ordered to see how things were goin, and yes, silkscreen lines are thickened, but there is no small markings to check legibility :-/
  • Darn! i thought i got it, thanks for pointing it out.
    Sure it is not a mandatary, i will see what i can do, but if it is not done like i thought, i am affraid it wont be possible.
  • Well, my clip is not wider than MCU, but now i see the other clip version on google, seems that it could suffer this problem.

  • Yes, it is related to the bypass hole and the bigger cap.
    I have no clear how to mark them, as a new version or as a different branches.
    I dont want people to think newer boards are better, when they are only different, but i am not happy neither with the extra letters, i think i am going to back to numbers as it keep things simpler.

Is a chinese no branded one you can find on ebay, aliexpress and many other sites.

I got it from this seller: Henny Liu’s store , but i don’t recommend him/her as i got different clip from which is shown on advert images, so random version could be sent.

Here is a pic of the clip i have:

After a long exams season, i have found some time to work with eagle.

I have tweaked my two last designs, so people who want to stay with 0603 OTC could use v006.

Changes are:
- silk lines are now thicker
- R2 is not next to MCU legs
- versioning is again with numbers only.
- on v007 bypass hole is 2.2mm / 0.0866inch

I hope they are close to final design Big Smile

I need some help. So far everything I’ve done has had a perfectly circular milling layer. How do I do other shapes accurately? Like an SRK driver with the tabs, or a tailboard in the SRK “flower” shape or for a ZY-T08?

Draw your basic outline, then use the split, miter, and meander tools.

Easy for you to say Richard! But this comes from a guy that build a D01 contact board and could not make a basic FET driver fit on board… I really suck at that program.

I’ve never touched any of those tools… I’ll have to play around with them and see what happens.

Thanks for the tip. Now that you know somewhat of the extent of my inexperience, feel free to keep the tips coming Smile

For tabs I make them first and use arc to get the rest of the circle.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

I just draw wires on the milling layer. If I need part of a circle I draw a full circle in the reference layer, than draw an arc in the milling layer and trace the part of the full circle in the reference layer that I want. I’ve never used the commands RMM suggests, I’ll have a look at them next time I need to do something like that.

A few more options, all basic BLF designs, but with added stability components. Part lists are on the various OSH-Park project pages:

DEL’s boards


DDm17 rev03 – Built and tested.


DDm17 rev04 – Ordered, but still en-route.
Rev04 is a slight modification on rev03 to get more clearance for the programming clip.


DDm20 rev00 – Just ordered.


DDmY3 rev00 – Ordered, but still en-route.
For the Yezl Y3 (1S).


DDmM6/SRK rev01 – Built and tested.


DDmM6/SRK rev02 – No plans to order.
This one gives the option of one to eight 7135 chips for the regulated channel.


1400m rev00 – Built and tested.
This one is a favorite of mine for Convoy S-series lights! It is what I use in my EDC S3. Two regulated channels, based on Harlequin’s HQ4D board. Note: Only good for 1.4 A.

Thanks DEL. The latest items I’ve ordered and just received thanks to this thread is the 15mm 7135 driver boards and the boards for momentary switches. Hopefully I can get a driver to work. Facepalm

Wow. What a mission. Well for me it is anyway. I have just happily, after many failures over along period of time, managed to build my first working driver. Its the 15mm SK68 driver by WarHawk here.
I used an old 7135 driver for parts that never worked, flashed the MCU with TK’s Biscotti and we had light. To everyone involved, a big thanks. Yes there were lots of you here that has helped me over an extended period of time from soldering, flashing and answering many questions. YAA HOO.

You finished!  Wink  I guess you have better luck with drivers than with motorcycles.  That driver looks great, by the way.  Congratulations.

Not quite this time. I’ve used this light peering down machined holes for along time now. Its ideal being a small zoomy being able to adjust the beam pattern to suit what your looking at. However it had a next mode memory driver with the dreaded flashy mode. The pencil mod on the capacitor only made it cantankerous. Due to a suitable driver not being available put up with it until now.
Another chip was added to make it five in total with an XPE2 Torch led used for lighting purposes. Shims were added to only allow the zoom I required. Dont laugh to hard at the flashlight itself. Yes it was cheap and very nasty. Silly

Congratulations, I have mixed success building them. Bad eyesight and short, thick fingers but still game.

I've done a few of those a while back using different drivers, FET and 7135's. They go pretty fast, hard to keep them around. I shorten the sliding piece to create a wider zoom area - works for most of them.

Nice Tom. So there are athers thatspend far to much time on crappy lights. I’ve got an Ultrafire that seems a lot smoother on the zoom and slightly larger lens that will get the same treatment next.
Not to mention shaky hands RBD. Silly

Nice.  I also have a few of those lights around...stock, FET, FET+7135, and boost (AA).  Nice little lights.

The TA30 can be used as a FET+1 if you want although populating all the 7135’s is better.

Any 15mm board (fet only , single channel like this ) that uses an LFPAK56 FET ?

Becuase now i use one of these boards with a fet installed upside down Silly

The TA15 is a 15mm board and the compact version can be sanded down to 14mm. It even has full 3 channel bistro compatibility but can be used in 2 channel mode as well or even FET only if you tweak the firmware. It uses the LFPAK33 FET, which is more then enough for any light limited to a 15mm driver (or much larger for that matter).

I want to ask if someone has tested if ToyKeepers Crescendo FW (Ramping for clickys and if i understand it right it is a Narsil mod FW) is working with the 17mm TA driver?
I love the ramping in Narsil so to get the option for a clicky paired with this nice driver would be sweet. I would test it myself but my oshpark boards are still on its way and i still have trouble to find a source for the SIR800DP or the SIR404DP FET here in Germany.
