Workshop Update for October 8th, 2012

Posted on Monday, October 8th, 2012 in Workshop Update by DP

Today we worked on today’s 3D model of the VFD tube board. Due to a large number of surfaces in this model, our PC had trouble coping with it. But we’re proud of the final render result.

We added a few components to our library. One of which can be seen in the picture above. It’s a 2.1mm barrel jack, with oblong plated trough holes, instead of very large circular PTHs.

    Why not use the CP-102A-ND from DigiKey (CUI PJ-12A)?
    While the recommended holes are 1×1.6mm slots, I find round holes of 0.050″ and pads 0.100″ quite suitable although perhaps 0.060/0.100″ ma be better.

      Thanks Cluso99, this part is a nice replacement for our wide pin PTH DC connector. we could make a variant of it.

        For me localy, the oblong pin one is much easier to source, I think this is the case for most people…
