Lorlin Header PCB
« on: September 12, 2013, 04:19:15 AM »
All but one of the Lorlin  header PCBs I had made for the group buy have now gone. Although that design produced very cheap boards, I find them rather awkward to cut into two. So I was wondering if there was any interest in an updated design. I was thinking in terms of of a ready scored PCB with say four switches on it. With four per PCB we should still get reasonable economies of scale and the scoring will made separating them a lot easier.

Any interest??

Hm I could use a few of them.

A was also thinking about a small pcb for a 1x12 Lorlin switch and resistors (soldered to the backside of the board) to easily create a stepped attenuator (would be better than soldering all the resistors directly to the switch)

interested in boards for a total of 16 switches!
We are getting way past relatively easy

The current design has an area where you can fit resistors but it is a bit awkward. With the addition of a few extra pads it could become quite simple. Good idea.

I know this is an old thread, but I was just thinking to myself, "I wonder if there are pcb's for Lorlin switches to use them in other builds in place of pots for stepped gain". So what ever came of this? Are these available anywhere?

I had a bunch of 1 pole 12 way PCBs made back in 2016. I have never used any so I don't even know if they work. They have provisions for up to 13 resistors and bring out the top and bottom resistors and the switch wiper out to a 3 pin Molex connector. You should be able to make both attenuators and stepped EQ controls using this board.

If you want to try some out I am happy to send you a few for free.
