Hi Hayden,
if you think the Eltech is loud, try one of the HP 3KW PSU's that were popular for powering LDMOS amps (I have two PSU's here) they are LOUD all of the time, so have recently changed to using the eltech units and now I can actually hear the dog when it barks. :D

Very good video Adam. The power supply sounds like it's about to take off down a runway when it's powered up with that fan though :thumbup:

The joys of working with SMD!
This is a TSOP6 package (2.9 x 1.3mm) with a lead pitch of 0.85mm.

New hardware addition to the SEQ-9700 sequencer production prototype... about to be mounted dead bug style for evaluation.

12x diopter maggy lamp lens and extra strong reading glasses at the ready! :crazy:

Holly molly they are small.

I find keeping away from coffee for the day keeps the hand nice and steady too :lol:

I didn't realise that you were hand assembling them, Adam!
