I just figured it was time. Nobody else has really break the circuit down after a year of having all the information. So I figured I would be the first to release all this info and research that I have done. Open Source 100%

Thanks again...

One more question though, how do I convert the zipped file to be able to open it up in eagle?

just unzip the files and then u should be able to open it in Eagle.
I will upload the raw Eagle files on here as an attachment.

A question I think a lot of us have been itching to ask.  :)

A useful freeware archive unpacker utility (ie for .rar .zip) is jzip - choose the custom install to NOT install the searchbar......
i find jZip works well good alternative freeware to winzip etc

for those that dont have Eagle = http://www.cadsoftusa.com/download-eagle/freeware/

Here's some more images of the VIC Circuit and a PDF of the Eagle CAD Schematic.

Hi Tony,

That's a huge step throwing your pcb and schematic into the open-source community, thanks for that!
I hope it rendered enough funding for your research etc.

Problem I still have with your PCB is that I do not have 50% pulse duty cycle from the cell driver circuit.
And the pickup circuit has a lot off noise in the signal from the op-amp 318.

Got ideas how to fix this on your PCB?

If you have this working correctly, please let me know... or I still do not know how the PLL finds resonance with signals from the pickup and tap from the primary coil???

Thanks!

Br,
