Mr. Bigh's boards are designed for 15v input voltage instead of 12v. HEY!

Check this out:
EC5A-12S15 Cincon DC/DC Converters & Regulators

I think it's even non-isolated. That would be perfect. And 10 watts continuous would be plenty for driving those igbts I think.

I would keep the DSPIC on a socket (SMD if viable)and keep the CAN on board with voltage monitoring and pre-charging relay output; thru-hole assembly and remove the driver's section (keep it external for two different output versions, MOSFET and IGBT) to make the PCB more versatile.
The parts for the IGBT driver modules are in, I will assemble one for a picture shooting session.
