PowerComms v1.3.0 Beta

We've been working on the design for the PowerComms v1.3.0 board for a few weeks now. Once the design was to a stable state, the RRRF ordered a small batch of boards from our PCB house. We got 20 boards back, and I'd like to offer these boards (for free!!!) to people interested in helping out with the project.

These are only the PCB's, and you'll have to pay for shipping, as well as the components to put in them, but hey... you're getting a free PCB!!

For more information, check out the RRRF store detail page.

If you want one, simply buy it from the store. We hope that you contribute back to the project with build pictures, documentation, and by testing. You're not required to, but we'd sure as heck appreciate it.

Keep in mind that this is a beta version of the board, and we make even fewer guarantees than normal about it working. (Hint: we make no guarantees about anything, hehe.)

Cool graphics, Zach! KiCad?
yup... kicad's 3D is pretty nifty. unfortunately the capacitor models are way too big, and the .100" header models dont exist. still very cool though.
Hi is the schematic available please?
hey ian,

its a beta version, so we havent released it on sourceforge yet, but as always, you can find the source files in subversion: http://reprap.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/reprap/trunk/reprap/electronics/powercomms/

keep in mind we use Kicad, a free / open source EDA suite.
