    Thumbs up Pad2Pad

    Hey guys, I just wanted to throw up a little review of a company called Pad2Pad. I'm sure many of you have seen the ILDA DB-25 breakout board I put together. Well, I can't tell you how easy it was. I went to Pad2Pad, downloaded their free software, which is very easy to use. Within the software itself, you can put together how many you need and it quickly calculates the total cost, as well as the per board cost. Took less than two weeks to receive the product and the quality was much better than I expected. These guys at Pad2Pad have really got their stuff together, I was very impressed. If you're looking to do just 1 or two boards, its not the way to go, but with multiple boards, it gets very cheap. One of the ILDA breakout boards would have cost $126. With the quantity that I ordered, I got them for just under $6 a board. If I had ordered 1000 of them, the cost would be $1.74! Anyway, check them out if you're interested in printing your own boards!

    That's not just some type of sound card DAC!

    It's his version of The LaserBoy Correction Amp!

    He gave me one of these at SELEM. It is really well done.

    I still have to get my sh*tuff together before I can really test it out. But I'm sure it's fine.

    Thanks David!
    Yes, They are audio DAC correction amps. Also, I'd like to get one of your breakout boards. They are very well designed. Great price too! Save one for me if you can.

    Thanks James!
    I'm glad you like my design. That means A LOT to me. Please let me know how it works when you get a chance to try it out. I know how projects go. I have lots of things on the back burner myself... I never have the time.

    Thanks Again!
