PCB - PCB is 0.8mm so that I can easier match TIL305 dimensions (PCB + diffuser). Kingbright APG0603 series of leds is used (0201 Imperial code). Black solder mask is used to provide better contrast of leds with background. Exposed copper traces on PCB as a throwback to original part.
Pins - Machined header pins with broken plastic guard are used. Compatible with breadboards and IC sockets, cheap, accessible, gold plated. Also 1.27mm pin header can be used for lower mounting heights when soldered.
LED Diffuser - Used to make the light from leds more uniform and distinguishable. I will approach to this from three different angles:
According to datasheet dots on TIL305 are arranged on 0.05"(1.27mm) grid. With that information I can now measure the size of a single dot. On the picture below each increment of scale represents 0.1 mm. It means that single dot is 0.4x04mm. I thought incorrectly that they were 0.6x0.6 (drawing from datasheet is more symbolic than actual representation of the part).
For my version of TIL305 I will use 0201 leds(0.65x0.35mm) rotated by 45° on 1.27mm grid.
Display showed on pictures below has marking "KOREA 8418".
