This is a guide to building a F4 using my boards, but you may be able to find some useful information here even if you use other boards.

The boards are based on the schematics from Nelson Pass's FirstWatt F4. You can get the service/user manual here: First Watt: Products: F4

IMPORTANT: Before you start stuffing your boards, you must read the manual/article written by Nelson Pass available for download on the First Watt website (First Watt: Products: F5).
