Subject: Satellite amp box adapters 


I have finished assembling the 1U adapters from 8 to 5 DB9 conn. for the satellite amp boxes. One thing I had to "hack" was the corners of the front panel end of the PCB. Because the PCB was a bit too wide, it wasn't really flush against the front panel (see Attachment #1), so I just filed the corners by ~ 3 mm and covered with kapton tape to prevent contact between ground planes and the chassis. After this, I made DB9 cables, connected everything in place and attached to the rear panel (Attachment #2). Four units are resting near the CAD machine (next to the bench area), see Attachment #3.
