Default Hi Leo

Looks great.

Which program did you guy's use.
I would sure like to make something similar.
But i'm not used to pcb design software
perhaps you could post the files for the pcb

Hi Leo,

your layout looks good. I just have one remark: the space for the power resistors looks too small to me, 3W and 5W resistors are usually much bigger than what they look like on your board.

Cheers,

Bruno

Hi Adams_Leo,

This is a large board. Laying out a serious high current circuit is risky and can take more than one turn to get things right - even for an experienced PCB designer. I would recommend wiring your amp point-to-point on perf board. Then you can move things around easily if you run into problems.

I'm just trying to save you some money here. Board turns are expensive especially with big boards.

Hi,
i've noticed that you use DXP for drawing the pcb. I'm also using DXP (Altium Designer 6.0). However i'm not able to find pcb footprints for heatsinks at all in the standard libraries. I see that you have them included in your board and i'm wondering if you could be so kind to send those libraries over?

Wonderful job on the layout!

Thx again,

Kari
