Project files: Relay-based attenuator

What is it?
This is the board files for my relay attenuator described here.

How big are the boards?
The board measures 3.85″ x 2.4″ (app. 98 x 61 mm.)

What is the status of the boards?
This board is version 1.0. It has been built and tested and I haven’t really found it necessary to make any changes based on the prototype.

Does it use any special/expensive/hard-to-find parts?
Not really 🙂

  • The relays must be the specified Omron G6K 5V version and the ULN and MCP ICs should be in the right packages (SO-IC). All these parts should be available from the usual sources, i.e. Reichelt in Europe and Mouser/Digikey in the US and worldwide.
  • The resistors should be 1% tolerance or better and some of the values are from the E96 range which might not be available in the shop around the corner but should be available from most of the mail order companies.

Anything else I need to know?

  • Refer to the original build article (link) for some additional information and helpful links to Arduino code samples etc.
