Introducing the Derek Speare Designs DIY components

By popular demand, Derek Speare Designs introduces its DIY components for Sim Racers.

The DIY components will enable aspiring home hardware builders to integrate rotary encoders, rotary switches, thumb-sticks and “Funky Switches” into their own sim racing gear without assembly requirements and having to do precision soldering.

You can orde your components at the DSD Web Store.

You are able to easily hook up the Derek Speare Designs DIY Components to any electronics board featuring very common standard pin headers with 0.100″ spacing.  The components come with a technical reference sheet for easy integration.  Keep in mind that the components are “Do It Yourself”. DSD will not provide user-specific help for DIY projects. Support requests will be re-directed to the Circuit Technical Reference Guide where you will find the necessary information to get your project started.

Hex nuts to mount/install the encoders and rotary switches are provided. DSD recommends you use panels with a thickness less than 3.5mm/0.125″ . You must supply your own hardware to install the Funky Switch and Pot Stick; use SAE #2 screws to fit the holes on the PCB.

Furthermore, you will receive all necessary jumper wires to connect to your electronics and knobs will be included with the component. Rotary switches and rotary encoders have 1/4″/6.35mm shafts and the Funky Switch and Pot Stick have non-standard shafts requiring our proprietary knobs to operate. Your components will be individually packed in 3M anti-static envelopes.

You may connect the components to the DSD 32 Button Controller, Micro32 Button Controller, and other 12Bit controllers. You must use a matrix for 12b controllers and you must group/chain all of your ground (GND) connections on your components to connect to the one ground pin on the Micro32. Use any of the 34 available ground (GND) pins on  DSD 32 Button controller.
