PCB & New Printer

IMG_0804With the Wii U not supporting optical out, I have been forced to come up with another solution to amount of games consoles and limited HDMI / Optical Out ports I have on my ever failing HDMI switch.

So I decided to build my own, which I can upgrade as I need to, or replace and fix components that are failing. One thing I will require though is the ability to fast prototype PCBs, so I bought a printer and a lot of press and peel.

I wasn’t sure if it would be capable of getting the track thicknesses I require, so I printed out a test sheet on paper first with a bunch of chips with different pitches.
