Just to be clear, I have not yet listened to my BuffIIIPro builds. I was saying my DAM 1021 setups are currently my best. I suspect based on comments from others that will change once I get my BuffIIIPro setups running.

AND of course, implementation is everything. I have some additional mods planned to my DAM 1021 setups to give them the best chance of competing... and am pulling no punches on my BuffIIIPro builds for the same reasons.

Hi again Dimitris,

Which are the essential differences between ArDAM1021 and ArDAM1021 Lite? I know display and memory usage are different, but anything else feature wise?

Thank you

ArDAM Lite "as is" only supports control via IR versus the rotary encoder support of the non-lite version. Other than that, just the obvious (aesthetic) differences.

noted, thank you! i'm trying to decide on a system, most likely will invest on a DAM1021 + your ArDAM (non-lite) and maybe an isolator. Do you sell your boards or offer the design somehow?

I'm out of pcbs at the moment, but I do have the full Eagle files for my Isolator PCB up on my blog: Universal Signal Isolator shield for the Arduino DUE | Dimdim's Blog

It's not hard to generate gerbers and order pcbs.

But I'm also considering starting a GB thread to see if there is interest.
