Not sure I like the Cap on the back, but i don't know what else to do with it.
You have plenty more room - get several SMD caps of smaller value and put them in parallel.
Opinions needed. Leave the big cap the stick out a little, but is easier to solder, or change to many SMD caps?
I think mouser.com can tell you whats cheaper
Could you move the smaller coupling capacitor over a bit and fold the electrolytic over?
Thanks for the emails guys. I plan on having the evaluation kits together in a few weeks, but don't hold me to it. I'm still trying to find a cheap and reliable source for the LED matrices.
Hmm, how about Multi-layer Ceramic caps? http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&name=445-1371-1-NDCan anyone with experience tell me if they equal electrolytic in surge suppression?
, but the disadvantage is ceramics need to be much bigger to hold the same charge.
If it makes you feel better,
Also, anyone want to buy 20 LED matrices?
Don't you just hate free-market competition?
