    Could you shed some light on the shutdown controller features? Will temperature reading be considered in the controller? Will there be external thermal probes? How will delays/etc be set?

    Yes, It will have a user selectable range. For example it will spit out something like this:

    a:50
    b:-5
    c:1
    d:0
    e:12000
    f:300

    You will hit P or something to put it into programming mode, then you will either hit enter for the default or change each of the parameters.

    for example, a: was the temperature High range, b: was the temperature low range. c: meant that it reads the pots to get the low voltage detect and the main countdown timer. d: means something else... etc..

    There will be no external temp probes. The temperature funtion will work a lot better than the uSDC controller.

    What kind of features do you want?

    So this readout and programming will be done in sort of a terminal mode using serial port and computer?

    My carputer project hasnt started, so I dont know much about the features of shutdown controllers, except that I like the idea of temp limits (living as I do in Michigan with extreme cold), and programming without having to interpret LEDs seems to be very nice.

    May I ask what microcontrollers you are using for this?

    This could work for the board I plan on getting. When are you going to sell them?

    Looks good.

    This would be more versatile if the dimensions were the same as the M1-ATX for use in mini-itx cases.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Jeff, I just introduced this to DH and we are pretty excited by it (both building P4 systems). I don't know what stage you are up to but we have a UK wide meet in October....so if you can release any more info it would be a good discussion point.

    I have 3 of them I can sell right now for $100 each, if you are willing to give me beta testing feedback. I am still getting the firmware all hammered out though. If you don't mind sending it back for an upgrade (free of charge except shipping), you will have a really cool power supply for a great price. You can select dumb power supply mode and the SDC will be disabled alltogether.

    It will probably retail for 160 or something.
