In late May, the first production order for 400 boards was sent out. The cost of the bare board for this run will be $10 plus shipping. Shipment is expected in mid-June. This production run might not be repeated so best to get in on the ground floor and be ready for the future boards. To order, you will need to sign up with the HAMSDR website http://www.hamsdr.com and then you may access the Projects->HPSDR tab for ordering.

Be aware that these boards are NOT an assembled unit. They are only bare boards and the purchaser will need to buy the DIN connectors and other parts to populate the board (or order the parts kit), and will need to manage the assembly of the Atlas.

ATLAS - Backplane

The project leader for Atlas is Phil Covington, N8VB.

The Atlas is a passive backplane that all other modules plug into. The circuit board has provision for up to six DIN41612 connectors at 0.8 inch spacing. An ATX 20 pin power connector can be placed on the board so that 12v, 5v, 3.3v etc. supplies from a standard PC power supply can be used to power the system. Since such power supplies are plentiful, both new and surplus, this neatly solves the power supply requirements. The various files for the Atlas board can be found at http://www.philcovington.com/HPSDR/ATLAS/ The DIN connector spacing and board size have been chosen such that the backplane can be fitted into a standard PC enclosure.

Availability

TAPR is now offering an Atlas bare board and optionally a parts kit. See http://www.tapr.org/kits_atlas.html for details. Be aware that these boards are NOT an assembled unit. They are only bare boards and the purchaser will need to buy the DIN connectors and other parts to populate the board (or order the parts kit), and will need to manage the assembly of the Atlas.

Documentation

Meanwhile the written ATLAS documentation is available in various languages which reflects the worldwide interest in the HPSDR project. Unfortunately Spanish is missing. Would somebody volunteer for the translation, please!
