Another RGB LED Board

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

This is my project for my design class at the university I am currently attending. It is the first circuit/PCB I have made that is not just a simple circuit on a breadboard.

I'm happy to say it worked on the first try and thanks to Username and his reflow oven I was able to solder all of the surface mount components.

I'm sure I'll be saying this again in the future, but thank you RobG for the inspiration for this project! :thumbup:

Parts:

MSP430G2553

TLC5971

Piranha RGB LEDs

I'm planning on doing some LED driver boards myself. What you have made there looks very nice. I'm new on here and still at the basics of learning everything. I was curious about one thing though. What program did you use to make the PCB design?

I used Altium Designer. We begged for over a year to get the program installed on the computers in our lab. It's expensive, but I like the program a lot.

You should merge the copper plane with your ground net.

TheDirty you are correct! I did not realize I had done that until I got my board back from Advanced Circuits. I should have seen it sooner but I am still learning how to do this. Fortunately, the circuit has no known issues as of right now.
