Hardware designs for the power board.

Repository contents

The electronic schematic consists of the six .sch files in the root directory, and can be opened with gschem (part of the gEDA suite). In order for gschem to correctly locate the schematic symbols, it should be run from the top-level repository directory and the sym submodule must be checked out (git submodule update --init).

The printed circuit board layout is named power.pcb and can be opened with pcb (also part of gEDA). Similarly, in order for pcb to locate the component footprints, it should be run from the top-level repository directory and the pkg submodule must be checked out.

pbv4b_bom.xls is the upstream developer's bill of materials. Our power boards use some different (but compatible) parts; see the 2017 manufacturing run wiki page for further details.

case contains design files for the board's laser-cut acrylic case.

Other information

Notes about the how the board works can be found on the Power board wiki page.

Notes about manufacture of the board can be found on the Electronics manufacturing and 2017 manufacturing run pages.

The approximate dimensions of the board are 66 mm x 86 mm, measured from the outline gerber and rounded up to the nearest mm.
