Introducing: Brewboard a FX-SaberOS board
« on: June 13, 2018, 08:16:57 PM »
I'd like to Introduce Brewboard



Brewboard is a Carrier board for homebrew FX-SaberOS Soundboards it was designed for Econo-builds

here are the specs;
  • 100% open-source
  • 20.32mm x 69.22mm
  • Connects Arduino Nano, DFPlayer, and GY-521(MPU6050) to create a homebrew soundboard
  • 4 MOSFETs to support RGB and RGBW or any LED with up to 4 die
  • Supports Neo-Pixel, Star LEDs and *string blades (* with 2 added MOSFETs)
  • Resistors for battery level checking
  • Built in resistor for neo-pixel strings (can be easily removed and bridged if not needed)
  • All the features Of FX-SaberOS
  • Dirt Cheap (even with the cost of the Arduino Nano, DFPlayer, and GY-521)



Opensource files and wiring diagrams can be found here;

Good work on this, it is essentially a carrier for the parts to implement a DIYino Prime v1 for those on a low budget and more spacious hilt desing.

Thanks! And yes; it really is a tradeoff. You definitely sacrifice quite a bit of space for the monetary savings. But if you're crafty you can make it work, space wise.

This sure would beat the heck out of doing it with strip board as most home-brews are done! Are you building these rider boards for sale?

I am, I just completed a run actually, but it's offsite... which is why I didn't post any of that info here. I could start a thread over in the Trade Federation and sell a portion of them there if there is interest.
