I’ve designed a Triple Multiplier starting from the schematics of Cadet X.
I begun from a direct clone of CadetX (picture below) then decided to raise the bar and create a triple multiplier with normalised inputs, this means that you can use one input and have 3 different outputs with 3 different “parameter”!
Or you can have a single input multiplied by 3 different signals, or any of the possible combination of 3CV x 3IN.
Nice! The general spirit of Cadet inspired designs is this:
Design your own PCB. (You did!)
Change something about the design. Make it a triple multiplier, or a series multiplier, add a rectifier mode, etc. (You did!)
Post your schematics for others to review and learn. (You did!)
If you’re not an experienced engineer, stay humble and get someone else or the community to review the design. (Seems like in this case, you did fine!)
Post a forum thread and share the process with us (You did!)
You can, but don’t have to share your Gerbers. If you plan to offer built units or PCBs for distribution, I’d recommend you don’t. (This prevents others who aren’t willing to learn to make their own PCB and understand how the circuit works from cloning it for profit – “builder service” I think is something different.)
Don’t be shy. Give it your own name and logo. I’d prefer if you called it “esnho triple multiplier” or just “triple multiplier” for example, rather than use the “Cadet X” name. (The panel looks good as it is! Maybe rename the thread when you get the chance.)
Replicating the LZX style frontpanel aesthetic, fonts, symbology, component grids, etc is 100% OK if you prefer to keep design language consistent. Or go crazy with it. Make it to your own personal tastes, either way.
Credit the original design / link to it, so others understand the context and lineage. (In this post, or on your site, or whatever)
What does myself and LZX want to get out of all this? A growth in the collective knowledge and DIY skillsets within the community. This is key to our mission statement. That’s why doing some of the work yourself is part of the expectation and learning/practicing something is the implied price tag of using the design.
So I think you already “get it”, thanks for letting the community benefit from your work!
You can indicate this location by adding the text of " JLCJLCJLCJLC " to silk layer, and select the " Specify a location " option when you place an order. If this option hasn’t been chosen, we may not notice you’ve added the text. Note: Just “JLCJLCJLCJLC”, No more or less characters. The font size should be larger than 0.8mm in height and 0.15 mm in width.
Just place that text on the backside of your faceplates.
