  • As long as proper noise suppression is used on the drive motor(s) then communication while running should NOT be an issue…. Else, why bother with using a slip ring assembly. I have passed hi res video through slip rings (for a full color POV video display) with no noise issue and the motor was a Brushed DC motor (the noisiest kind) with proper noise suppression, (Snubber caps and resistor as well as diode back EMF adsorption)

  • If you tie the pins together, I will NEVER buy another one… Soldering pins together is NOT a big deal… And the board layout is MUCH more flexible as it is.

  • Has anyone tried to use one of these in an Integrating Sphere?

  • It would be rather useless if thermal vias were used… The whole idea is to achieve performance as close to a solid copper sheet as possible to conduct as much heat as possible from the switches… Thermal vias would defeat that intent.

  • Easiest way is to use 30ga wire …. just lay it along side of the component lead and solder it to the pad… If the desired connection is an adjacent pad, then just use bare 30ga wire… else use insulated wire (wire-wrap wire)

  • The “shield” concept is MUCH more valuable than extra pads on the back.

  • If you ever tie the holes together, let me know so I can buy my boards elsewhere… I’d much rather connect the required holes together with bus wire than fight the process of using a blade to seperate unneeded pins.

  • Anyone of my people even thinks about using a 700 deg soldering iron on one of our pcb’s is history..
    No end to the kinds of damage that can cause!
    Crystalized joints, burnt (carbonized) substrate, damaged components… and on and on…

No public wish lists :(
