208p DIY sets


BEFORE CONTACTING ME WITH YOUR QUESTION
please read the infos below, the FAQ and the
build thread




A new revision of the 208p PCBs is available from SAmodular.
I don't sell retail PCB sets of the new revision myself but you're welcome to
contact me for orders of 10 sets or more.
The previous "vintage" revision with bare tracks and no silkscreen remains available at retail from me as long as stock lasts, contact me to order.
 
The
original curved tracks design and 208p improvements and fixes are preserved.

The 208p PCB set includes

  • motherboard and boards 1 to 12
  • gold plated transfer card
  • a pair of pA726
  • a DG200A-dapter

W
hat's new ?
  • the missing small track on board 2 is fixed
  • the tracks routing below the pots is improved to prevent short risks
  • the black or blue soldermask masks all tracks and vias
  • the silkscreen shows both the parts values and name (the name remains visible when the part is soldered in place, to ease troubleshooting) on all boards and both VTL5C3 and VTL5C3/2 pinouts on boards 10 and 11
  • the 5 sequencer LED 220 ohms resistors are silkscreened on bottom side to ease selection test according to the LEDs used
  • a signal output header connector eases the connection to external audio outs for installation in a suitcase (compatible with the BEMI / Buchla USA suitcase wiring)
  • +5v, Q and N grounds are immediately available on the program card edge connector for digital cards

Not a DIYer ?
I build top notch plug and play 208p modules on demand, with the new or "vintage" boards and custom features to meet each one's own needs and preferences.
Each pre-built 208p comes perfectly working and calibrated, deeply tested, with invoice and 3 year full warranty.
Contact me for more details.

Luther offers the nicest "Almost Zero" custom suitcases. Very professional work and service, a pleasure to deal with.

The PCBs come unpopulated and without parts. I assume no liability for personal injury or damage to equipment or loss of use caused directly or indirectly by the use of these PCBs. The build should only be performed by those experienced in electronics with access to a good oscilloscope and frequency meter.
