Dizzy: Power Distribution board

Constructional Difficulty: Easy

The issue 4 Dizzy board. 1/4" (6.35mm) Faston blade terminals provide for easy and reliable connections to the master power supply.

This is a MOTM/Oakley power distribution board supporting twelve 4-way 0.156" (3.96mm) MTA/Molex headers and four 1/4" (6.35mm) Faston blade terminals for power entry. An optional 'earth' terminal is provided for additional grounding options.

Also included in the design are eight 0.1" headers that can be fitted to connect to the Oakley Bus. The Oakley Bus can carry Key CV and gate signals to suitably equipped modules, like the Oakley VCO, VRG, ADSR, etc.

The double sided circuit board is 5.6" (142mm) long by 2.35" (60mm) wide. It is designed to go at the rear of 19" rack units or built into the bottom panel of wooden modular cases. Each row of three headers is 'star wired' back to the blade terminals to ensure to lowest possible resistance and unwanted interaction between connected modules.
