Designer Dream Boards
Thank you for supporting Four State.
These PC boards are targeted at the DIY designer/builder who would like to construct their own RF or
control designs using time tested bits of circuitry, already in a PC board environment. The boards
facilitate the construction of a myriad of of RF systems or sub-systems including receiver, converters,
transmitters, and etc. utilizing builder supplied parts. Each circuit “element” has its input(s), output(s),
and control(s) via 2-pin headers, or alternately, pad-to-pad wiring. An ample bread boarding area is
included on each board for building pieces of circuitry not already provided by the standard elements.
The Designer Dream #1 (DD#1) board will be most useful for low level RF work such a receivers and
converters and the Designer Dream #2 (DD#2) board is targeted for higher level RF amplifiers and the
like. Each board is 5.0 X 3.25 inches in size and are intended to be mounted with standard passive PCB standoff hardware.
No parts list, nor any parts, are included. Work from the schematic and parts layout picture as you build.
