So I’ve been working on this board to light a prop and I was hoping I could get some feedback on my work.
The “kit” has three (3) boards: A CPU board, a Driver board, and a power board. Attached are images of each board exported from Eagle.
The CPU and Driver board are connected, and the Power board is about 6" away (along with a Li Poly battery).
The odd mix of thru-hole and SMT is based on the contents of my parts drawers and nothing else to note. Though I have yet to use any of the SMT TI LED driver chips.
I’ve done several revisions of these boards and everything seems to work fine (of course I am just blinking LEDs at random) but before I order 50 PCBs I thought it might not hurt to have other eyes take a quick peek.
Anything I did wrong or should do differently? And on the CPU board I added C1 and C2 specifically to help prevent any noise problems. Are they really helping or am I just wasting my money (C2 is $1 even at quantity 25)?
Any other input would be greatly appreciated.
