AS many of you ,I'm watching " The mandalorian " series and I knew instantly that i need to do something about it , it's really cool , I love the star wars universe and the bounty hunter had been a enigmatic character since then.

The shiny armor of beskar could be a great finish for a pcb board , so i start to work on a easy design, the mandalorian helmet.

- This is the way -


For the design i took many mandalorian helmets as template and get the drawings done on inkscape, add some textures as scraped metal to look more "weared".

The black color is the Front solder mask aperture , it means that metal will be exposed.

To achieve the beskar steel looking i choose the HASL pcb finish.

The schematic capture was made using KiCAD , I use the same electronics to maintain things easy , the microcontroller is an small but powerfull pic10LF322.

This mcu has 4 GPIOS , 1 of them is just input.

•Operation Voltage 1.8V – 3.6V

•Up to 512 Words of Flash Program Memory

• 64 Bytes Data Memory
The electronics is powered by a  3v cr2032 battery

Kicad have a huge comunity and plugins , one of them it's svg2shenzen by badgeek , an Inkscape extension for exporting drawings into a KiCad PCB.

The LEDs are controlled by charlieplexing technique ,so 1 LED is running at time,this POV feature save power and works great with low pin count mcu.

Pressing the button will change the LEDs animation until go to sleep again.


    • Be proud to wear this badge.
    • The PCB have HASL finish , it will be bright as the best beskar availabale in the galaxy.
    • White silkscreen on black soldermask
    • Light weight, so the pcb thickness is 1.0 mm
    • Small size, 30 x 35mm
    • The lighting will do a great effect on cloth.

Forge your helmet

  • Six  white LEDs / 0805 package size.
  • One microcontroller sot23-6 package , show your skills.
  • One push button 3x4mm
  • One cr2032 Battery holder
  • One Pin
  • One capacitor 0805 package size
  • Be ready for the diy soldering kit .


The good looking of beskar

This is absolutely fantastic! We love this show and my tech's asked me to dig into a fun project. They like tinkering and doing small challenges in the shop. Little friendly competition! haha! This is going to be our next one! Thanks!

Also! The "this is the way" is EPIC! Way to sneak it in there!

Great implementation.  Do you plan to make the KiCAD or Gerbers available?

  Are you sure? yes | no
