Half wave?


Shmoopfox

yep! uses capacitor and resistor to smooth the output


AKLmfreak

Looks like it.


dtech12

diöde.


maxlover79

I hope the AC you're going to rectify is just from an isolated power adapter.


Okay2meK2M

That’ll convert atLEAST 1v I’m sure 👍 (Sorry couldn’t resist)


takenusernametryanot

I can borrow you some resistors


Okay2meK2M

NOW, I can resist!


PowderedJoy

Now turn it back to AC!

I was caught In the middle of a railroad track (thunder) I looked 'round And I knew there was no turning back (thunder) My mind raced And I thought, what could I do? (Thunder) And I knew There was no help, no help from you (thunder) Sound of the drums Beating in my heart The thunder of guns Tore me apart You've been Thunderstruck

I got a good few lines in before I realised what this was AND I love this song!!!

Good start! Given that you have so much space on that perfboard, you can add more components on top of that later :)

Leds. Lots of leds. 😍


Shmoopfox

I am going to add a step-down transformer.


Perishhh

Why not adding 3 more diodes to make FULL BRIDGE RECTIFIER instead of a puny single diode?

Looks good. I also have these boards and i love them so much!


WhoseTheNerd

Sprinkle three more diodes so you can increase the efficiency of that AC-DC converter.


FemboyUwUUwU

FUL... *inhales* its just a single diode but it will do ~smart electrical engineer living in Canada


Leonmail38

Ah yes, a fellow Electroboom enjoyer.


Agitated-Hat-6669

Looks fancy


analog_cactus

Good job! Now, if this is not meant to be part of a larger project, put it in a nice wooden box or something. Half the fun is making it look good!


rdroach

Simple is best, do you have any simple DC/DC?


imstfx__

This design has much power loss, you can use diodes bridge configuration to get a full wave rectifier instead.


BlownUpCapacitor

Good job! **Now plug it into the mains AC.** JUST kidding! **Don't.**


alberik99

Test how many amps it can handle on 240V?


NotSoShyAlbatross

Unrelated, but does anyone here ever use the edge of these with a card edge connector to expand to other boards?


leoheck

You should learn to take pictures.


Shmoopfox

Sorry I took it on my phone about 5 hours before I posted this, so it was pretty late

Especially when trying to kill yourself with electronics


frozo124

Is that unsoldered or poorly soldered?


Perishhh

I would guess soldered from other side considering those are THT components


frozo124

Thats what i'm assuming too, but if I have to assume that then the soldering was probably not that great. Those through holes look like there was no solder that reached the other side.


Perishhh

They do seem a bit empty but i wouldn't judge it based on poor quality picture, test of time will tell if they are soldered well xd


Shmoopfox

Not yet soldered. I’m adding a transformer


frozo124

Makes sense. I would be really careful if you plan to do anything with mains power.
