Default Driver Specifications Compendium

I thought it might be a useful exercise to defragment the available information on the drivers currently available to the hobbyist community. I've tried to hit all the high points; please let me know if something needs to be amended.

PLEASE NOTE: I've spent quite a while combing through the threads of the respective drivers to try to get an idea of the specifications as rated by their respective designers. The specs listed below are what's listed by the designers; but the point of this thread is to aggregate them in one single, updateable place.

I've presented them here in the order that I found specifications on them. So, in no particular order.

I don't think I've missed any current drivers... but if I have, say so!

Places to buy, and recommended diodes... okay. I think a section at the beginning stating diode characteristics might be better, so that the specs can indicate what diodes each driver would be good for.

Anyone want to chime in on that?

I don't think he ever released any kind of a document but the driver is using the same IC as FMT drive and should be very close in specs to it.

Hrm. I'll look into it.

In other news, images added for everything.

Ty Trevor, this is definitely a big help. Can we get sourcing information for tracking them down as-well?

How could we forget the groove V2 I have many builds with this great linear.

Really nice thread!

I have scoped the benboost and posted the results. Somewhere on page 40 or something . Ill go back and find the %. Max output voltage is 28v but really depends on the parts you buy, usually 16v from the caps. On the safe side, id say ~1A max for the old version, 1.5A for the newest "mini" for a 445nm diode from one li-ion.

Edit: its about +/- 2.5% current ripple
