F6 Clone Convertible PCB blog

Posted 27th January 2013 at 12:48 PM by Tea-Bag
Updated 29th June 2013 at 07:30 PM by Tea-Bag

Here is the F6 board rendered by CRT and some help from others.

It's convertible premise is to be able to swap out transformers using daugter cardsand be able to swap out variations on the schematics Nelson Pass presented at the 2012 Burning Amp Festival.
Additionally, places for two pairs of 2SK/2SJ are here to allow GR's to be used to allow for higher than 8ma IDSS without degeneration on the front end. If you have 8ma IDSS BL grade for use here, than your all set.
You can use standard power resistors or 5MM thin film type.

Here are some of the daughter cards that mount to the main board. They are available for Jensen, Cinemag and Onetics Quadfilar transformers.
These are mounted with 2 2x10 @ 2.54 mm pins. Note the PC PINs of...

Dual Rail Power Supply for F5T and F6

Posted 10th October 2012 at 05:55 PM by Tea-Bag
Updated 27th October 2013 at 01:02 PM by Tea-Bag

Here are some pictures of the Power Supply that CRT and myself designed for use with the F5T and F6Convertible design. It is meant to be both compact, have adequate capacitance, and be able to use the recommended MUR3020W or similiar diodes. They are 2.5mm thick boards with 3OZ copper thickness.

(Updated boards take now 40mm wide caps and are larger measurements below and new pics)

Boards measure 108mm wide x 192mm long. The diode boards are 35mm x 54mm each.

SouthSemi modified F2J Clone

Posted 7th January 2012 at 09:13 AM by Tea-Bag
Updated 21st November 2010 at 12:46 PM by Tea-Bag

This last weekend I replaced the IRFP240 in my F2 Clone with the R100 SouthSemi Power-JFET.

tubes-guy used psychic powers to control my mind and force me to do it.

The bias dropped off the bat. I re-biased and gave it an A-B listen to the standard channel. Seemed to be a bit 'cleaner' sounding the the default channel.

Nelson has recommended the following changes to the circuit, which I hope to implement soon. I will be re-wiring these on Peter Daniels boards.
The Peter Daniel boards are still available I believe.

Papa sayz...

The F2's that I have updated with the JFETs need the
following changes:

R6 = 47k (changed to 8.2K of FW Site)

C1 = 10 uF

Z1 removed

The potentiometer must be re-adjusted for minimum
distortion at 4.5 watts (symmetric clipping) and readjusted

Salas Board Minikits and Full Kits

Posted 16th September 2011 at 01:37 AM by Tea-Bag
Updated 25th February 2014 at 12:28 AM by Tea-Bag (expanding for all kits)

Here I am going to post some semi-commercial information regarding the minikits.



BIB or SSLV1.1
Make sure to read the full BiB build manual before ordering parts. The link is posted below.
BIB BUILD GUIDE REV2 BY SALAS

It is essential you understand and purchase for the correct voltage type and range you need for this kit and additional parts.

The purpose here is to report what parts are included in the minikit, and which are not.
This will assist builders in getting the correct parts that are not included in the minikits.

The minikits are made for one of the three sections of the PCB. The board itself can hold two positive and one negative rail type supply.

The kits are purely optional, and are sold to assist the buyer who may not be able to access the resources needed to gather the specific parts.

There are four kit types described below. IRF for voltage 5.5v...

Aleph "MJ" using SemiSouth SJEP120R100 outputs

Posted 8th August 2010 at 09:29 PM by Tea-Bag
Updated 9th August 2010 at 12:34 PM by Tea-Bag

So I believe I am finished with the Mini-A version modified for SemiSouth R100 output. The MJ is not in reference to Michael Jackson, rest his soul. Simply a reference to Mosfet input, JFET output.

Technical pieces:
R8 is a 1K pot. This allow for some DC offset adjustment.
R18, This affects drain current to differential pair. This value is lowered. I chose 220R resistor since I have a bunch of them. Papa presented this as needed on mod's in general for the lower VGS of the R100 (~1.5v)
R19, gate resistor to Power JFET R100. This is lowered to 47R. We see with F1J and F2J that gate resistors are lower.


Rail Voltage is +/-24v
Source voltage is .425v and is largely determined by the 100K pot settings and heatsinks on hand. The real value of the pot is ~ 70-80k here. I let the IRF240's run no higher than 65c and R100's no higher than 70c.


Sound

Previously I had R18 at 392 default and R19...

Salas HOT ROD DCB1

Posted 15th June 2010 at 03:56 PM by Tea-Bag
Updated 2nd January 2014 at 05:30 PM by Tea-Bag (added BOM)

So I am going to write some details down about the DCB1 Blue Edition Buffer. This is the best I can tell, the third or fourth iteration of this buffer/Power supply. The GB will certainly represent the third run of the buffer.

Salas added some tweaks to the design which CRT implemented. I will be offering these boards for sale.

Click the image to open in full size.


Here are some things that make it different,
It's a larger board.
More room for filter caps.
They can handle 10mm pitch snap-in capacitors 25mm width capacitors.

Click the image to open in full size.

There are positions for smaller MUR120 type diodes or MUR820 style TO-220 style diodes.

The vRef LEDS can now be bypassed with a 25mm Film cap or a 100uf electrolytic.

Old Style DCB1 information

Posted 1st January 2010 at 01:53 PM by Tea-Bag
Updated 13th October 2010 at 12:48 AM by Tea-Bag (updated some more timely info)

The basics on the boards....
The hypnotize is a 1 input/1 output Shunt regulated Direct Coupled Pass like B1 buffer. It has a relay delayed startup to avoid DC problems for the amps. This board (and even Mez) can be used just as a shunt power supply, and their is a thread for this also.

The Mesmerize can use up to 6 muting relay inputs, and is a larger board. All others matters being equal.


Here are some relevant threads.

Attached is a semi-built DCB1 mesmerize. Also the main schematics of the device, in case you need to troubleshoot. The below shot is a bare Hynotize PCB.
