LED2001 based driver
July 8, 2019 - 1:16am

Hello ! I am a newbie electronics enthusiast but managed to solder together a simple LED driver for my DIY headlight. Surprisingly enough it works but in order to keep all parts in place i had to pour a ton of hot glue over it. Not ideal. 

There is an evaluation board from ST electronics https://www.st.com/content/st_com/en/products/evaluation-tools/solution-evaluation-tools/led-and-general-lighting-solution-eval-boards/steval-ill054v2.html 

It is available in "gerber" files but I've found no way to edit these. I need to change some components and add a 555 based dimmer circuit to that. Basically create a custom PCB. How?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

hie, i would suggest you to make a new PCB using EasyEDA online pcb designer. Basically you can import a gerber file in the EasyEDA designer to look for the tracks and other things. You can take reference of the gerber file and make a new PCB. This way you can use replace the existing IC with 555 IC. 

You can go to https://easyeda.com/ and use the existing designes of embedded PWM dimming circuitry LED brightness control made by some other designer. you can import the design and can make a few changes to get the work done. comment if you need more help on this.
