So I just got my first PCB in from batchPCB tonight. Its a LED driver shield using the TPIC6B595 shift registers as sinks for an array of LEDs. I'm using it to control an LED array for a beer pong table I'm building. Not the most noble effort, but its fun to have something to work on. Put it all together and was so excited I had to tell someone about it.
Here it is by itself
With the mega
Because its for a ruit table I've only broken out 20 of the 24 sinks. If there is any interest I can redesign it to have all 24 sinks broken out to jumpers and put it up on batchPCB market along with a bill of parts so it could be put together as a kit. You can get pretty much everything from digikey for SUPER cheap.
Here is a video of it in action (you might want to mute it unless you want to hear my girlfriend talk about some class she's taking)
In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, however in practice there are many...
