Hi Paul,

I am looking at Rev 2c but i can not find a schematic of power board. Could you please send me schematics of 2C's power board?

Thanks a lot,
Huseyin

I mean I emailed you! haha (10 seconds ago)

The kitchen table is a great place to start assembling a 500 amp controller, right?

My 16 year old is liking it so far.

Now don't forget to check for solder bridges, and make sure the ground plane solder is sticking. What a beautiful father/son moment!!! Stop it! You are making me cry!

The boards came today! Now I just need to solder all that crap on them. The only board I'm worried about is the 4 layer AC. I've never done 4 layer boards before, but everything seems like it's good. I was offered a job of over $60,000 per year to keep working on the projects for a company if I closed everything up, and I said, "no gracias! I love my mother-in-laws basement!" haha. That's true by the way (the job part and the no part. not the loving of living in the basement).

Seeing my son in his "home" is payment enough for me!:

To keep this project open, so that it is available to anyone. is truly a most generous, unselfish thing.

For that alone I salute you. May the Lord our GOD smile upon you, all the rest of your days.

I think the days in the basement will hopefully end soon for you and your family.

Try laying out a 16 layer PCB, I did one for a high speed tester a few years back. $3,000 plus for (1) bare prototype PCB, that’s pressure !!!

Now that's sacrifice! I hope that you continue to use this “open source” forum for your projects! It is very much appreciated !!!

I don't know how many of you have seen or read "THE SECRET", which is a little airy-fairy, but I do believe in Karma and that when people just put out as much good as folks like Paul, that it can't help but come back to them multiplied!

Kudos and thanks to Paul and everyone else who helps, inspires, builds, creates, and "puts it out there"!

Much thanks to you Paul... I have lived that way all my life (ha ha not always in a basement) Rewards are all about accomplishments NOT money.

God Bless you and the basement HOBBITS......
