Step 6: PCB Design Templates - Extra Information


The LED SpotLight is a fairly simple design PCB, and can be hand-crafted by those who wish to etch their own boards at home. To assist in your creation, we are including four images in PNG format of the board layout which you can transfer to your own PCB material.

The four images include an overview of the PCB for component layout, a board-top image of the traces, a board-bottom image of the traces and a final image of a drilling guide.

These are all provided for your own enjoyment and no support is provided for these.

The images are also updated on the support page at: www.pcboard.ca/kits/led_spotlight/diy.html where you will always find the most recent information.

Hi <br>can I ask how much for it costs ?? <br>Plus can I know how safety it will be if I applied close to the eye ... around 15 cm !!! please reply ASAP
&quot;It is setup with 24 LEDs in total, 18 around the outside and another 8 on the inside (all the LEDs are labeled D1 to D24).&quot; <br> <br>Ehm...LOL... 18 + 8 = 26 ;-) <br> <br>This is just a hidden advert. If you show us the schematics, you will be given much more credit. <br> <br>This way, it just looks like massive SPAM!
Can you just simply attach schematics, so people here make own DIY project? <br>How these LEDs are grouped, powered etc.? <br> <br>Otherwise it looks like advert.
Why are people complaining about $2.00 to etch and drill their own PCBs to save what ? Isn't your time worth anything? The only time I make my own PCBs is for my own designs as a prototype. After that, I'd much rather send it to a fabricator to make a dozen or more Professional boards with soldermask and silkscreen can't be beat. Just my opinion, but ....
Cool! I made it in my webcam But, 1 infrared led these tv controler.<br>(I'm sorry my english, i'm from brazil)<br>Soon, i will do a tutorial... See you!<br>Thanks!
Where can I find the PCB artwork?&nbsp; I prefer to etch and drill my own boards.&nbsp; I've done a couple with perfboard, but always wanted a round design.&nbsp; Guess you wouldn't sell many kits, if people made their own...<br />
Don't have the artwork available separately sorry. The documentation/schematic is available from <a href="http://www.pcboard.ca/kits/led_spotlight/" rel="nofollow">http://www.pcboard.ca/kits/led_spotlight/</a><br /> <br /> john<br />
Without providing the way for people to make their own boards this whole instructable seems to be nothing more than an ad for your boards.
I agree and they expect us to pay $4.00 USD for a bare board with no components. Thats rediculous i might pay $2.00 for it but definatly not $4. Thats just a complete rip off.
Really? You're complaining about a $4.00 circuit board? About a delta of $2.00 over the $2 you'd be &quot;willing to pay?&quot; This sort of negativity could have the consequence of discouraging people from publishing their projects, I think. I don't think that there's some sort of &quot;fat cat,&quot; getting rich on the sale of $4.00 circular boards with solder mask and silkscreen.
There were a few requests for the&nbsp;PCB layout, so I now have a dedicated page to assist in doing up your own board.<br /> <br /> Have a look at: <a href="http://www.pcboard.ca/kits/led_spotlight/diy.html" rel="nofollow">www.pcboard.ca/kits/led_spotlight/diy.html</a><br />
You appear to have used the same image 5 times, but we still don't see the finished item. Can you get the use of a camera?<br /> <br /> L<br />
You should see a slightly different image in each step as the build happens - there are separate files uploaded and I do see a slightly different image on each step. Give it another try.<br />
Oh yes, it's the 90 degree angle makes it hard - finished item pic, in a case / on a mount?<br /> <br /> L<br />
