Some of the projects I was working on
The above board is the first one "sent out" for.
Sent out as in, I made the design and sent it to a 3rd party for manufacture.

Actually the size to be further reduced on two layers by moving some of the power components to a separate board.
This post might help anyone looking for a slim line solution to 5v or USB ports on a motorcycle. Not a huge achivment by any means. But made life better for a client.

This post is for anyone interested in owning or building a CD welder. I wanted a reliable Resistive spot welder for lithium ion pack construction and or repair. I didn't want to spend 3k or buy from china. I decided to design and fabricate my own. Bellow is my first crack at a Mosfet Switched capacitive discharge mcu controlled spot welder. This post is a work in progress. If you've stumbled across in hoping to build your own cd welder feel free to ask questions in the comments section. I'll provide any help I can.
