I’ve almost completed the schematics of all the LED panels. Once done, I will start placing and routing it.
I tried routing a small number of LEDs to check the estimations I made in the previous post. I forgot to take the soldering pad into account, so I only managed to place a LED each 3.2mm.
Anyway, this distance is too small and we risk soldering issues. Based on the vertical distance between last year’s SPIROSE LEDs, we will put a LED each 3.4mm (1.2mm between each).
Based on this, the LED panel will take roughly 11cm x 14cm. Since the PCB is 19cm x 19cm, we have plenty of space for other components. I will try to fully route one LED panel and its drivers to check if it is possible.
For now, here is an idea of how I was hopping to do the routing:
Technically, all components (except for the power supply, which I haven’t checked) fit in. What I need to figure out is if routing is feasible,
