Linky 2.0 Updates

Hey there, fellow skateboard enthusiasts! We’ve got some exciting news to share with you today. We just received the final version of our brand new dual-drive PCB board from the fantastic folks at @r13Technology, and our resident skateboard collaborator, Enrico, is gearing up for the meticulous task of putting all the components together. Get ready to witness the magic of our new PCB!

So, what exactly is a PCB board in an electric skateboard, and how does it work? Let’s break it down in simple terms.

What’s a PCB Board? PCB stands for Printed Circuit Board. Think of it as the heart and nervous system of your electric skateboard. It’s a flat board made of non-conductive material (usually fiberglass) with a layer of conductive pathways etched onto it. These pathways serve as highways for electricity, allowing all the electronic components to communicate and work together seamlessly.

Components Galore Your electric skateboard is more than just a deck and wheels. It’s a sophisticated piece of machinery with various components, such as the battery, motor controller, and sensors. These components are interconnected on the PCB board to make your ride smooth, safe, and enjoyable.

Power to the Wheels The PCB board plays a vital role in controlling the power delivery to your skateboard’s wheels. When you hit the throttle on your remote control, the signal travels through the PCB board, instructing the motor controller to spin the wheels at your desired speed. The PCB ensures that power is distributed efficiently, so you get that adrenaline-pumping acceleration you crave.

Safety First Safety is paramount in electric skateboarding, and the PCB board plays a crucial role in ensuring it. It’s responsible for monitoring various sensors, like temperature and voltage, to prevent overheating or overcharging of the battery. This helps keep you and your board safe while out on the streets.

The Art of Assembly Now, back to Enrico and his meticulous work. He’s the mastermind behind putting all these components together. It’s a bit like assembling a puzzle, making sure each piece fits snugly on the PCB board. Enrico’s steady hands and keen eye ensure that our new dual-drive PCB board is ready to power Linky 2.0 like never before.

In a nutshell, PCB boards are the unsung heroes of electric skateboards. They bring life to your ride, ensuring all the electronic bits and pieces work harmoniously to provide a thrilling and safe experience. So, the next time you hop on your electric skateboard and cruise around town, take a moment to appreciate the magic happening beneath your feet.
