Hello! I've never thought about what all the ports need to be. I'll figure that out and post it.

Just a quick video at 24v, going from 0amp up to 70amp, with 2 mosfets and 2 diodes installed. The board has room for 12 of each, so to get to 1000amp, I need around 84amp each. I'm still trying to decide if the spike is real. During this test, I monitored the temperature of a TVS diode, and it was staying cold, so it's not being overworked yet. Next I'll crank it a bit higher. But I'm just worried right now since I can't find my goggles, and I don't want molten metal blasting me in the face. haha.

kits and boards
