The Stand Alone regulator is starting to see the end of the tunnel, and I am now going to put some focus on this integrated controller project. I have three persons interested in 6 or so PCB sets, so am going to be reviving the PCB. I am looking to do the following:
- Correct any known issues. (Very few).
- Transfer learns from the Alternator Regulator over (thinking about the FET driver, and Service Port)
- Moving more components to SMT.
I have am just starting, so the details will be changing. But, the last item - moving to SMT - is to allow for the boards to be partially assembled via Machine. Not only the INA-226's, but also things like the Resisters, Diodes, etc...
If you are interested in one of these, drop me a line. Will not be ordering till later this summer, but if you want one, would be a good way to get one with the hard assembly work done, and for a reasonable cost.
