ADAU1442 DSP - micro production line!

Posted 4th July 2012 at 03:36 AM by googlyone

I got to the point with my new audio DSP / crossover that I had no more excuse not to load the remaining PCB's I had manufactured.

I initially only loaded one of them, on the basis that if I had a clanger in the layout I could get a new spin of the boards.

Well the thing is all working and I have updated the DAC board - so the remaining five boards needed loading. I find a bit of PCB manufacture and loading to be quite therapuetic - as my previous blog entries will show.

This weekend I found my limit - loading the SMD's for these five boards - by hand in my toaster oven - took about three hours, then loading all the through hole parts, particularly headers and power supply parts blew away I would guess six more hours. I am over it!!!!

They do look pretty though!

The project will proceed, exactly as stated in the earlier posts. Just a shame people couldn't help injecting unhelpful comments, and I was provoked into responding. Ahhh, well ...

So, now some peace and quiet! Hopefully at least a few will find something of benefit in what I relate here, and my methods may resonate with some.

Anyway, may all enjoy good listening, no matter what!

Cheers,
Frank
