I'm going to be installing a Pin2DMD into my Data East Jurassic Park. Can someone please provide or point me to the installation instructions for the physical DMD (I already know how to do all of the software)? I just want to make sure I get the power connected correctly.

BTW, if you've not seen the JP colorization, it is really nice:

Dont have the link but pretty sure

No luck finding anything. Anyway, I can figure out the 12V power, I just didn't know what to do with the DE video board. I've decided that I need to design a platform I can mount to my existing PIN2DMD acrylic frame.

Here is my solution for PIN2DMD on a Data East pin (Jurassic Park, specifically). I designed and 3D printed some 20mm spacers then mounted the DE video board on them. I had to move the power converter, but that was not an issue an all using an existing screw hole. I then aligned the board so as to have clearance for the DMD mounting screws, drilled the 4 holes, and voila!

Now, lets see if I can get it powered and working.

Well, it took some effort to swap the DMDs between my two games, but I must say that the PIN2DMD JP colorization is excellent. I actually prefer it much more than the ColorDMD I had in the pin before. The only issue I had was the colorization not working, then I realized I probably needed to upgrade my firmware (I was on 2.54 and 3.12 is current). Anyway, once I upgraded the firmware the colorization worked perfectly.

Hi,
Which power a pin2dmd 192x64 needs to works properly? Is a 5v/8A is enough? Is Amp important? Thanks

Read about it here https://pin2dmd.com/hardware/ point 3
Some of the later batches of chinese P2 panels need the voltage to be set to 4.1V instead of 4.8V to work properly.

Looking into having the EVO pcb cut and populated. I got a quote from pcbway, and it was around $75 per board shipped if I did a run of 10. Looking around, it looks like jlcpcb.com could do it for a good bit cheaper, but I would be on my own for the through hole components (which is fine).

Has anyone done a successful run through them? Their site is pretty self service, and I have a handful of components that I'm having difficulty in matching from the BOM:

1) Can't find same sized buttons for reset, etc. (430152043826). They have the following, e.g., which is a bit too small: https://lcsc.com/product-detail/Tactile-Switches_XKB-Enterprise-TS-1187A-C-E-A_C318887.html/?href=jlc-SMT

2) Can't find exact match for the inductor SRP1265A-470M. They have the following in the stock which is similar in size, but it's only 2.5 amp instead of 6.5 amp: https://lcsc.com/product-detail/Power-Inductors_Sunlord-SWRB1207S-470MT_C169376.html/?href=jlc-SMT. Is the 6.5 amps needed?

3) Can't find a clock crystal in the same package as FC4SDCBMF8.0-T1. The have the following in stock which looks close-ish: https://lcsc.com/product-detail/SMD-Crystal-Resonators_Harmony-Elec-X5H008000FC1H-X_C136084.html/?href=jlc-SMT

4) Can't find a match for SK54BTR. Can I drop in an rectifier that matches the max reverse voltage and amps, or is the lower voltage drop of this component super important?

5) Can't find an SD card socket of any kind. Is there another search term I should be trying?

6) They're out of stock on the STM32F427VIT6. Is an STM32F427VGT6 an appropriate substitute? They are the same size package from what I can tell and the data sheet bunches STM32F427xxxx together.

For fun, I cloned the repo w/ the evo files and downloaded the free version of EAGLE, but it seems the free version doesn't allow for editing of boards this size. Is there an open source/free alternative to EAGLE?

I'm pretty inexperienced in this area so...Is the design flow w/ EAGLE that I load the schematic file make my modifications, and then use that to generate the board/layout? Was playing w/ this in case 1-3 requires modification of the board to support the components that jlcpcb has on hand. (When I last did this way back when in college, I used that type of a flow, modifying the final layout as necessary.)

2) Should have at least 4A
4) VGT has 2048 Flash VIT 1024. The flash is not only used for program storage.

Thanks! Any constraints that I should be aware of on the rectifiers?

Have you been using EAGLE for your design work? Or are there better free alternatives?

Rectifiers ? I don´t use AC Voltage

I don´t know

I have heard of Kicad but not used by myself

Sorry, the schottky diodes. Is the forward voltage drop super critical? Or any other constraints to be aware of?

Hi,
I ordered some EVO boards from PcbWay and today I received this email:

"TS2940CP33 is out of stock, can we use AZ2940D-3.3TRE1 , brand DIODES instead? "

I don't understand much, can I confirm the change of component?
