    No.
    I haven't installed easyeda to see the board yet.
    A posting of the board in a jpg or pdf top and bottom with a schematic would be equally helpful for me to port this to EAGLE.

    EasyDa is web based so you just have to make an account and then import the file. I'll do a couple of screen shots today and post. If a couple of you are interested, I'll order a few boards and test. Sound off if you want one.

    I would build one to test.

    I would like a pc board as well... I have accumulated all the parts except for the case and pc board. So add me to the list.

    OK, I'll get a few made up. I'll let you know when they get in. Here are the top and bottom layers of the board, if interested in duplicating.

    Ok gentleman, I ordered 15 boards with a delivery of about a week. The price was about $3 per board. I will check them out when they get here and if all goes well I'll send them to the first 14 people who PM me with their info. Since I have a lot of the RJ 45 that I designed the board for I will include them, the fuse holders and anything else I thin may make it easier to assemble.

    I received the boards and there were a couple of mistakes. They were all easy to remedy, and I made the corrections for another order. I had 4 people PM me about boards, I sent out 3 on Friday and the 4th will go out Monday. For the boards I did up, I fully populated the boards, and programmed the pic chip. The only parts I didn't supply was a case and a LCD.
    I ordered 10 more boards with the changes made. I will wait and see what others think of the boards I sent out. Later today I'll post pictures of the boards I received, and the changes or additions I made.
    Side note: are there many people out there using the WS2801 (4 wire leds)? If not I could make boards smaller and a little cheaper.

    I saw working prototype today and it is a great testing board for 3 and 4 wire wire pixels, 5 and 12 volt. Joey spent about 3 solid hours helping me work through an issue with my Ledtriks. Thanks, that's what I love about this hobby. I'll be getting one of these when they come in!
    That's a feature not a bug.
    There's no charge for that.
