Eurocard DIN41612 3U riser extender PCB card 160mm

Introduction

I have originally designed this riaser card for few of my projects, but this turn out so well that I have now posted all schematic, gerber files and documentation to fellow enthusiast such as yourself :) Perhaps (and I hope) content in this obscured corner of interwebs will inspire you to start your own projects.

Eurocards system in general is enormously versatile for all kinds of projects thanks to standardized mechanical dimensions and quality connectors. You can literally make any project and skale it up as much as you wish. For example this extender card can be used as exnteder card as the name suggest doh..., but also to intercept and trouble shoot signals and as a prototyping platform if you attach solderless breadboard to it.

You can use these cards in industry standard DIN subrack or Eurorack. Card will fit nicely in PCB guide rails with front panel Eurorack if you wish to use one. Card has been designed to be very versatile and you can fit 96 and 64 pin DIN connectors each side if you wish or 64pin female edge connector.
These boards look absolutely gorgeous in standard green solder mask if you going for that standard industrial look. I can advise you where to buy connectors, however you can use any standard 96/64pin DIN Eurocard connectors or 2x32, 64pin PCB edge connectors.

Purchase item



... but if you feel like getting something for nothing isn't your cup of tea (completely understandable) (ಥ﹏ಥ) and a prefer to support me and get something back in return, then you please purchase this item directly from my on my eBay shop (click on FleaBay logo above). However if you are still up for an adventure (and are happy to have PCB's made yourself in your favourite PCB house - JLCPCB is recommended), then carry on and download gerber files further down. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Assembly instructions and notes


Gerber files contain " JLCJLCJLCJLC" to silk layer. You can specify a location of the order number, select the "Specify a location" option when you place an order. Only if you order via JLCPCB
. ■ Fit Female and Male DIN 41612 96pin 3x32pin right angle connector or alternatives you wish to use
■ Use M2.5 screws and nuts to hold DIN connectors in place, thse don't need to be fitted to achieve strong mechanical connection however
