    I just got off the phone with wjohn....there is a mistake in the boards as he mentions. We are working on getting them replaced as soon as we can.

    Glad to see this sorted out.
    Si if a new board has to be designed and manufactured can I make a suggestion.
    I thought that an LED on the board to show 5 volt of the regulator would be good or some test points.
    I know there is a led for incoming but would be good to know your 5 volt regulator is working.

    This is already in place in the DCSSR available through DIYLEDEXPRESS. I will be posting the gerbers to the file share.
    (Tried the other night, but kept getting an error).

    I have made a number of modifications,

    The board is now capable of 10 amps!! double sided, Plated thru holes. Channel ratings are now at least 3-4 amps per channel (there is a lot of copper)

    I can add a second LED (optional) to show that the 7805/78L05 is functioning.

    I have sent the PDF to Chris for checking, I want to make sure that his standard parts will fit.

    I'll post the 1.3 (c) version with the second LED after supper.

    Does anyone know if the new layout for this board was finalized?
    Have tried contacting wjohn several times but he must be busy.
    Just need to know if they have been put into production and if the parts list from the wiki will still be the same.

    My guess if there is, Chris (wlcventures) will have it available. He works pretty closely with wJohn

    Yes it does!
    At least for those of us who have the incorrectly screened board, I thought he was going to send replacements as soon as he had them made. I don't know how long they take to have made, but I have a lot of building to do to be ready for my first blinky flashy year!

    Finally got in contact with John. He expects the boards to arrive some time next week, hopefully.
    As soon as he gets them I am sure he will ship them out.
