I've found a fab house, and...

YES. I can manage $10-ish per pair. Obviously, this does not include shipping, but within the US, that shouldn't be expensive at all.

Now, before I get ahead of myself, obviously, I still have to order prototypes, but if the prototypes work out well (which they SHOULD), then I'd like to place an order for at least 50 sets (100 cables).

Cross your fingers.

EDIT: Prototypes ordered!

Finally!

My left eye has had broken scanlines for years now. They don't seem to corrode symmetrically at all as the right eye is still pristine... but for how much longer?

LOL, Eagle has a learning curve alright. You could always try DesignSpark so you don't have to have Autodesk installed.

If you're selling, I'm buying :D

Just got word that my prototypes are slated for production on March 12th. I'm also finishing up with some fine tuning on the design c/o the fab house I've picked.

Everyone is being added to a prospective buyer's list. Once I've verified the prototype and tested them, I'll send out blanket PMs.

Also, for dedicated repair guys - if you buy 15 sets or more, you get a 15% discount (not including shipping).

I will use the cheapest SAFE method of shipping, which for most people will be Priority Flat Rate boxes at about $7.25 or so. International shipping will be per country with an eye to costs and protection.

Zitat:

I considered asking if it makes sense to fit the LED boards with ZIF sockets, but that didn't really make any sense; if you have to get in there and do soldering anyway, just make a permanent connection; it's going to be just as difficult, if not moreso, to retrofit a socket.


You know, I looked into this, but dismissed it. The reason why is simple:

The LED board contact pitch is decidedly non-standard - no off-the-shelf ZIF connector that I can find uses such an oddball size. To take advantage of this, you would have to go through the entire manufacturing process for a unique ZIF connector, which is STUPIDLY expensive. Like, on the order of tens of thousands of dollars expensive.

Otherwise, that would actually be a brilliant idea.
