If zammykoo ever sends the pcb 'drawing' over and there was enough interest, I'd make a batch.

I've been thinking about these pcbs and I'm wondering if it would be worth it to integrate a usb hub chipset into the board to run a CM108 audio chipset and to drive both of the usb ports. This would make it so a single USB connection (preferably to the MB header) could drive both analog/digital sound and usb. Also, I have looked around for the Left-Angle standup Firewire 400 and still can't find anything so that leads me to think including a Firewire 800 port would be the better choice going forward. I currently have a lot of interest in this and I'm tracking down some people to possibly do a design based on what I've proposed here. Anyway, just wanted to throw my 2c into the conversation.


I'm definitely interested in something like this!

Hey guys, I have been obviously MIA for a while because of work, etc. But I wanted to chime in since I had no idea this thread was still getting hits! Glad to see that my project has been talked about :)

I have gotten a few requests for the source design but haven't had the chance to respond. To those who wanted the files, let me know what files you need. I will gladly release them to you guys to further develop and distribute this piece of hardware. I'll dig up the vector design and also the BOM (if i can find it).

Hi there... I'm one of the "hungry" for the files that emailed you, but luckily I did it within the last few days. LOL

I can't wait for those files/info to start my G5 mod!!

(I'd really like the pinouts, the source of the parts, and the program you used to sketch the layout of the PCB - also the access to your video :thumbsup_anim: :thumbsup_anim: )

Thanks for the great source of inpiration!!
