Complete VIC Circuit!
« on: June 17, 2011, 05:45:13 am »
I've just finished re-designing the complete VIC circuit and I'm going to have some PCB professionally manufactured. If I can get enough potential buyers, I will be selling these boards complete with all components installed and placed into a 7.5"x 4.25"x2.25" enclosure with all appropriate controls on the panel. This VIC circuit will include the following circuits all on one board: "Variable Pulse Frequency Generator", "Gated Pulse Frequency Generator", "Phase Lock Circuit", "Resonant Scanning Circuit", Resonant Feedback", and "Cell Driver Circuit". The sale price will be $300 + S&H. If you would like more info please email me at tonywoodside@gmail.com

I'm also selling bare Professionally made Printed Circuit Boards of the 8XA Circuit, which measure 4.6"x2.3" for $35.00 +$5.00 S&H. To purchase the 8XA Circuit PCB follow this link to my website http://www.globalkast.com/products.htm
Thanks,
Tony Woodside

Hi Tony,

Are you having unipolar pulse with your Vic transformer and wfc connected to that pcb?

Did you build everything just from don's schematics or did you take into account everything that was in the pictures as well? it seems like some things were left out of the schematics
anyway, it sounds awesome and once I get some more info, I will most likely buy

@webmug, I've tested the circuit using my VIC transformer and I substituted my single tube cell for a real 10nF capacitor to make sure the circuit was locking in on resonance at the calculated frequency. The circuit would lock on and the voltage across the capacitor was measured at over 1700v with a 12v pulsed input. So the circuit work as Stan says it does.

@jim miller,  Thanks man!

@Dave, I've built everything based on the actual circuits from the images. I did refer to the schematic that Don sent out and I have found a few errors with the schematic. The circuit does find and lock in to the resonant frequency of the LC circuit. It works very well. I actually built this circuit as my final project for my Electronics class and my electronics professor was very impressed with how it all worked and of course I got a grade of 100 on it...lol

These circuits are fully assembled & tested by me before being sent out. I am building them as orders come in.

Tony,

I guess you won't be releasing the Eagle cad files for free!

I had the idea you give the diehard forum members a free open source reference design, so we all could benefit from it and improve and test the circuits.

Well your pcb looks good, but it is too expensive for me. At the end we need ten of them! $$$
