Tangible Waves - DIY KIT
Make your own AE style module!
The DIY kit contains all necessary parts to make an AE style module out of your circuit; it contains PCB, frontpanel, three potentiometers/switches/LEDs, patch sockets and all mechanical parts. The module is designed as a 2-PCB-layer module: The upper PCB carries the pots, switches etc. and the lower part is a stripboard/perfboard where you can solder your circuit. The connection between both PCBs is made by two multi-pin connectors that make all items on the top PCB accessible at the lower one. So you have some free space for the components of your circuit and can directly connect them here to the according pins of the control elements.
The PCB for your circuit is included in two versions: First, a stripboard version with +5V and ground in the center, and a perfboard with simple solderpads in 2.54mm grid.
The frontpanel has prepared cutouts for all items and you can easily break out the ones you effectively need for your module.
NOTE: This module requires basic soldering skills; also, you should have the usual tools available for making an electronics board, like soldering station, wire cutter, small pliers etc.
