PCB a Week 10: Trifluxx

Posted on Tuesday, May 21st, 2013 in PCBs, project logs by DP


Mats continues his challenge of designing one PCB every week.  In week 10 he came up with Trifluxx, a triangular PCB game:

I ended up with using resistor arrays instead of discrete 0805 resistors to save some space and the board can be used for both a sound reactive flasher or some kind of a 1/2/3-player game if the buttons are cut off and connected to the main board by wires. The center of the board will either have a 5mm thru-hole led for the game version or a condenser microphone for the flasher version.

The board is powered by a cr2032 coin cell mounted at the bottom of the board – all other parts are at the top.

    I like the stonehenge art in place of resistor networks. Built in heatsinks?
