I’m not in this time but thanks a lot for doing it!
12v operation is updated on Loneoceans GXB172 REV.A2 BOM. Only two changes to make if you use 25v output capacitors… Sense resistor (R1) and (R13). I’m using a XHP35.2 but I haven’t had a chance to do much testing yet.
Autonomousperson can we see some of your other work? Other high (and small) parts count boards you’ve assembled?
This is my first community project so it will be challenging however I do not expect issues assembling the board. Tomorrow @ work if i’m not too busy i’ll try to get a video of my rework skills. I have multiple irons as well as a reflow station. frequently reflow 01005 sized smd componets as well as BGA packages and will demo both. My assumption is if I can work on iPhone logic boards I can easily work on these drivers with larger sized components.
Here is something for now… https://www.reddit.com/r/mobilerepair/comments/8wnc3o/battlestationssss/
I am purchasing these parts out of my own pocket, you pay only after its assembled. No risk to you, just want more people to get their hands on this board.
As I understand, this version not support e-switch ?
If so I am interested in 2 but if price is <20$
I’d be interested in a few depending on price and firmware.
Interested in at least 1 or 2 divers. But living in Germany will probably make it very expensive (shipping + driver + customs fees).
It will depend on the final price.
i also have an interest in 2, i have a copper s2+ and a stainless/copper x6 on the way that are begging to have xhp50s in them
Same for me, though there might not be customs fees, it’s free up to just under 25$ in the Netherlands, i’d think it’s the same for you?
Yes ~same here. Tax free threshold official 22€ (but they do not collect taxes below 5€) so inofficial the threshold is 26,30€. But the shipping costs are included in the 26,30€. And because shipping from the US is not cheap its hard to stay below this.
One option is to mark the package as a gift (tax free threshold incl shipping 45€).
But lets wait and see what the final price is. For sure a interesting driver that will open up new modding possibilities!
In for 2 as long as I can afford, best if one could be 12V.
I’d like one too. And like others, although I totally understand it if the real value is higher, the costs need not be excessive for me, so if cost including shipping can be kept under $25 I’m in.
Thanks for doing this autononousperson, I think this is a great initiative.
What he said I’ll be in for one please if those are the parameters
I’m also interested in one if the price can be kept low enough. I might even want two or more if I get rich in the mean time, or if the price is surprisingly low.
Did you see that there is a new revision board? Hopefully, that is what you’d be building.
OSH Park ~ ? If you can find a newer revision send it over! I will confirm with oceans before I order that I have latest pcb/firmware.
That’s the one. Someone had just mentioned it in the loneocean’s thread recently, so I wanted to make sure it is the one you’re planning to build.
Still doing my research and digging through threads related.
Count me in for 2!
This will be epic, I’d have expected a few more requests to be honest though? Maybe the momentum will build
