    Hi,
    I have a mirrored image version of Simple Drive ll marked SimplyDrive 11 V.01 on its solder side. (purchased from Mike in Belgium)

    Is the pic below back to front or do I just have a strange version?

    Cheers

    On closer inspection it seems that there is a capacitor where you have pads input/output ???

    Maybe it's not one of yours and just looks similar !

    Cheers
    PS the shape distortion is just the pic as can be seen with the coin !
