[Waggy] submitted this handy device for his entry. It uses several 556 timers to clock a driver chip that drives the mosfet output. If you’re not familiar with PWM – think of it as a six channel motor speed controller, but far more flexible. [Waggy] did a nice job writing up the details on the board – definitely a strong entry.

LED LCD Backlight Replacement
[Keith]’s cousin gave him a LCD with a noisy backlight. He decided to replace it with a series of high output LEDs. He sourced some locally in the form of cheap LED headlamps from an auto-parts store. The results look pretty good – and the write up contains this gem: “…One [LED] also exploded due to an accidental overvolt. Shot me in the Chest. Panel okay though” Nice work.
