EKartGo Project

Interesting video for anyone looking at electric motors and battery packs. I really like Lucid’s electrical connection and cooling arrangement compared to Tesla’s.

I may take you up on that, thanks for the offer. I’ve been coming up to speed on PCB layouts and parts from what I learned in the 80s and early 90s.


It’s been a long journey, a journey of things breaking, teachers getting fired, getting limited to 1 hour a week, but it’s reaching its end!

This must be a controversial project if faculty is getting fired.

Way to persevere through all of the drama! :+1:

He thought I was getting paid to make it, and wanted a cut or he’d stop me from using the machines.
That’s not what got him fired though

Who hoo… and I finally found some chips I was still missing and ordered them. Fingers crossed that they actually ship.

I knew it was too good to be true. Full bridge controls in stock, but not MOSFETs. :frowning: Lead time 72 months!

Update: The MOSFETs I intend to use now show availability in October… so that’s better.

Getting on with KiCad now. The schematic is basically complete, but I’m missing some footprints to make the controller circuit board.

Still… progress.

use SamacSys library load, most of your chips should be available.

Awesome! The one that was really hard to find was the NVMTS0D7N06CLTXG - onsemi part.

Thanks, now to update the schematic with the proper part.

NTMTS0D7N06CTXG should do the job, just a footprint update. You can buy the part from Rochester Electronics LLC which most likely a old inventory, but it does not matter that much.
