Okay Spaeterneisa is ready! Anyone?

Post by falafelbiels » Fri Nov 14, 2014 7:26 pm

Okay guys, you have probably seen a few of these things on these pages before because I have been working on quite a few. Now finally I have a bunch of PCBs for them that are good and I am very happy about that! Anyone want to give it a go?

Image

What is it then?

It is a Spaeterneisa, a 4hp clock divider with four divider stages (n/2, n/4, n/8 and n/16) that can be turned on and off manually with pushbutton controls or with external gates/ triggers.
The outputs of these dividers don't overlap and when all stages are active, the clock is simply passed on to the output.
Furthermore it makes a very nice 4 octave, switchable sub- oscillator.
But I use it mainly as a pattern generator, sending in the masterclock and using arbitrary trigger signals to switch on and off divider stages. I like the stuff it outputs driving my percussive voices and sequencers.

Image

This shows the output order for the 4 divider stages. Note that th cd4089 leaves out 1 pulse in every 16 pulses when all stages are active. I used to just live with this but on the latest Patternizer models I have fixed it with extra logic circuitry (cd4012 and cd4089). So when all stages are active, it now simply passes on the inputted clock signal.

This one goes really nice with the Buncha-a-Klox, because I made the Bunch-a-Klox especially for this...


This is a 2 board module, almost completely 0805 SMD, some tiny transistors in there, oh well.

Image

I'm thinking € 25,- per PCB set (including VAT)
Panels € 10,-

===========================

I get the switches from Tayda:

http://www.taydaelectronics.com/catalog ... /?q=A-5156
these are 13mm high and stick out above the Plexiglass panel so you can actually push them.

Tayda are also very good with the SMD resistors and ceramics and the electrolythics of course. They also carry some Kobiconna-a-likes but I don't really like using those myself.

===========================

On the list are:

1 x Dripfeed
1 x Oberkorn
1 x mckenic
2 x Spenca
1 x livefreela
1 x mikecameron
2 x C1t1zen
1 x synchromesh

info requests have been sent out

:hmm:

A 4hp clock divider for €35?
How the f00k did I miss this?

Cant fit my deep RCD in my travel case - so YES please!

Well you didn't miss it, it was never offered before.
And by the way, you will have to buy components for it and assemble it yourself.

Okay while at the subject of panels, there's some options.

Some need holes for the LEDs to poke through, some are transparent enough for the LEDs to shine through. What size LEDs do you want to use, 3mm or 5mm?

Have a look at my Photobucket and see if there is anything you like in there.

Oh and I will run out of the panelcomponentboards quickly, don't have too many of those. Brainboards I have plenty.

Hi falafelbiels, can you clarify about the gated on/off for the outputs.
Is it a global on/off using the top jack?

Is the second jack a reset?

Perfect panel design!

Will there be a Mouser BOM - that would probably increase sales.

There is only one output, it outputs the combined divider stages.

Okay, jacks top to bottom:
- output, with LED indication.
- reset input
- clock input
- n/2 stage gate input, with LED indication and corresponding manual control
- n/4 stage gate input, with LED indication and corresponding manual control
- n/8 stage gate input, with LED indication and corresponding manual control
- n/16 stage gate input, with LED indication and corresponding manual control

Thank you!

Not a bad idea, I may put together a mouser bOM later this weekend.

I'd like a set with a panel! I've been looking for the right little SMT project to get my feet wet and this fits the bill nicely.

I like the trans orange and the frosted clear/white from the photos. are they all available or?

Sure!

Right now I have 11 Spaeterneisa boards, which are the boards that hold the jacks and switches and leds. This connects to the brainboard that holds the logic circuitry, of which I should have about 90.

I need one more set to make fotos for proper build docs so 10 are available, going to the guys/ gals in the list in the first post.

guess i better get an order in for more Spaeterneisa boards.
