Building the Teensybat

Earlier version below.....


So here it is....  Finally we have printed circuitboards for the "new and improved" Teensybat based on the Teensy 4.1 development board.

(you can use both versions, with ethernet or the slightly cheaper version without ethernet)

Functionality is mainly the same, the biggest improvement is the audio buffer, this PCB however has changed a lot. Building is much easier. For those of you that wonder where the Gerber files are....  Sorry, I do not share the new gerbers.

This is the latest version PCB (V0.8) Schematic, there is an extra position for a second microphone amplifier to make it easier to experiment with an additional microphone element to play with stereo reception.

This is the V0.7 schematic, the audioboard is integrated, as well as charger circuit and protection. The Teensybat runs directly off a li-po cell.

Here is a video that shows you what is involved building this version.









Schematic of the early version.

The schematic of the old detector looks like this, the modifications for backlight control, GPS and temperature sensor are not on this PCB



So, I kind of ran out of materials and am concentrating on an easier to build Teensy 4.1 variant.

If you are able to order your own PCB's  here are the Gerber files for the old version (Teensy 3.6 based) I will not share the latest version gerbers.
