PartySystem/Bill of Materials
|ATMega48||Digikey||ATMEGA48A-PU-ND||16 (panels) + 1 (rear) + ? (one for each UV/strobe panel)||2.58|
|SN75176B||Digikey||296-1739-5-ND||8 (panels) + 1 (rear) + ? (one for each UV/strobe panel)||0.88||These are cheap enough that we can just buy one for each Atmega|
|Copper Clad Board||Digikey? Elsewhere?||See here||A lot||Varied||We need to determine which sizes we'll end up needing for everything as well as whether we want single-sided or double-sided|
|ATX Power Supply||Newegg||N82E16817709010||1||15.99 + 5.99 S&H||We can also buy a bunch at the Swapfest in October for $5 each.|
Maybe Obtainable Otherwise
|RJ45 Jacks||2*8 (panels) + 2*1 (rear) + 2*? (two for each UV/strobe panel)||Did Paul say he had access to a bunch?|
|Cat5 Cable||A lot||I think Paul said SIPB has a lot / They're super cheap on Monoprice|
We may want to use Sparkfun's USB->RS485 board for the data link since it is already designed for an RJ45 connector, although it's a bit pricey at $20.
We need some cheap transistors that will do PWM well. There are probably a couple million options.
