The Final Countdown Has Begun!

by Denis Kotlar (a.k.a. prasimix)

I would like to thank you all for your patience and support thus far. We are happy to inform you that the EEZ Bench Box 3 (BB3) campaign is set to launch very soon. In fact, we will go live tomorrow, November 19th, at 3 PM PST. And we are offering Early Bird discounts, so keep your eye on that clock!

The following products will be made available through this campaign:

LevelDescription
BB3 Enclosure & Bare BoardsA BB3 enclosure kit with a wire harness, nuts and bolts for the three core modules, a 4.3" TFT touchscreen display, an encoder knob, and an 80 mm fan. Includes a set of bare PCBs for building the three core modules (AUX-PS, MCU STM32F7, and the BP3C DIB 3-slot backplane) and three peripheral modules (two DCP405Bs and one DCM220). Suitable for builders with the necessary skill, time, and patience.
BB3 StarterA BB3 enclosure kit without bare PCBs but with fully-assembled core modules (AUX-PS, MCU STM32F7, and BP3C DIB 3-slot backplane). The Starter provides an environment for experimenters who are willing to build their own modules or who want a specific BB3 configuration (such as a six-channel BB3).
BB3 Two Channel (Basic)A BB3 starter kit and two basic DCP405B single channel (40 V, 5 A) peripheral power modules, including an AC/DC module for each. A great two-channel programmable power source suitable for most of everyday tasks. Expandable to three or four channels.
BB3 Two Channel (Full)A BB3 starter kit and two full-featured DCP405 single-channel (40 V, 5 A) peripheral power modules, including an AC/DC module for each. A two-channel programmable power source with advanced features: remote sensing, remote programming, a down-programmer, and additional OVP (with crowbar).
BB3 Four Channel (Basic)A BB3 starter kit, two basic DCP405B single-channel (40 V, 5 A) peripheral power modules, and one dual-channel DCM220 peripheral power module. Includes all three necessary AC/DC modules. This is the two-channel basic kit, expanded to include two additional programmable power sources.
One Channel (Full) Power ModuleA full-featured DCP405 single-channel (40 V, 5 A) peripheral power module with remote sensing, remote programming, a down-programmer and crowbar OVP. Includes an AC/DC module.
One Channel (Basic) Power ModuleA basic DCP405B single-channel (40 V, 5 A) peripheral power module and its AC/DC module.
Two Channel Peripheral ModuleA DCM220 dual-channel (2 x 20 V, 4 A) peripheral power module and its AC/DC module.
Cable SetTwo pairs of high quality, silicone, color marked (black-red), 1 m connecting cables; a pair of clip-on probes; and a pair of insulated crocodile clips.

The first 50 backers will get a BB3 Two Channel (Full) for the price of a Two Channel (Basic).
