some project ago i did " The mandalorian " pin badge and i thought that it need a pal.

Golden beskar could be a great finish for a pcb board , i started doing the armorer helmet with this idea , the colors and finished match .

- This is the way -

Design

I took the armorer helmets as template and get the drawings done on inkscape

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

To achieve the golden beskar steel looking i choose the ENIG pcb finish.

*I don't own any right on characters , it's a fan made gadget .

Electronics 

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

Printed circuit board 

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.

Manufacturing PCB

I've been ordering my boards from JLCPCB  , have a fair price and great finish. The process was easy and fast, dropping GERBER files , selecting ENIG finish, thickness and quantity. It took one week to get my boards back. I'm happy with the service.

Function

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.

Aesthetics

  • Be proud to wear this badge.
  • The PCB have ENIG finish , golden color match.
  • White silkscreen on black soldermask
  • Small size, 30 x 35mm
  • The lighting will do a great effect on cloth.

Assembly

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 .

- THIS IS THE WAY -

The good looking of beskar
