    Hi,
    Seems that PCB links are dead, perhaps always were; does anyone have PCB layouts available ?
    I'd love to build one v3 for my 1991 Stelath R/T, but without a PCB - I'm stuck.

    Piotr,

    Those first two links are just screen grab jpgs of the schematic file.
    the source code is here: http://renegadetechworks.com/index.p...ecs-software-2
    The schematic diagram file is located here http://renegadetechworks.com/images/OpenSource/Renegade_Techworks_ECS_M03_Schematic.pdf


    I don't publish the pcb source files.

    I can't believe there are people out there that will not support the efforts that make things like this happen. How much money are they really saving buy building vs buying from you?

    Including taxes this will be about my monthly salary
    Can I buy just a PCB then ?

    If your monthly salary is less than one of these units, perhaps you are owning / maintaining the wrong car. Please understand, I'm not trying to be rude. But even if you was sold just a PCB, what would be the total cost building it? I bet that in the end you are really close to the price of just buying a unit.

    If your goal is to save some $$ then since this an arduino based design , why don't you save even more and just buy a stock Arduino UNO and a prototype shield and build a one off using the prototype board? That's how I made the very first prototype. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HHYBWPO

    Oh, that would look ugly . Redoing the PCB layout is not a problem, just reinventing the wheel.
    Okay - I really thought that open-sourcing this project included the PCB, but was not included just by mistake.
    If this was purposeful then OK, I can do my own.

    Oh - and the cost of building ? Parts, excluding donor ECS module for connector - was $15 ?
    Provided that Aliexpress parts do work
