I'm currently on rev 3 of my ThinkPad-specific LED retrofit driver boards. They fit into the space on a stock inverter freed up by removing the CCFL step-up coil.

I'm on pace to make about 200-300 kits this year, and I'm still making them all by hand. Solder paste applied using a pneumatic dropper, components placed using tweezers and stereo microscope, then reflowed using a hotplate (thus the little placement jigs with silicone handles).

more after the cut... )

LEDs and LED strip PCBs are finally here!

So now it's time to catch up with the LED backlight kit orders, aka, I know where all my free time is going the next few weeks...

(Does anyone else still remember the Dunkin' "Time to make the donuts" commercials?)
