σ-board is a specialized kind of plug-board designed to
simplify the building & creation of eurorack modules out of arbitrary functional
circuits implemented on separate PCBs.
It provides the base for arranging the required panel control elements.
Main-circuit PCBs may be mounted on the σ-board either
vertically or horizontally (2-layered PCB sandwich).
Together with one or more Syntaxis μmodules, an σ-board makes it possible
to build a complete eurorack module quickly and easily, with no soldering required!
Being a plug-board, the σ-board is reusable, thus the location and
type of controls, as well as their connections, may be freely modified.
However, unlike a typical plug-board (bread-board), which is intended solely for
prototyping purposes, an σ-board may be safely used also for
building finalised devices that are ready for use whether live on stage or in the studio.
This is thanks to the σ-board's contact design, which makes connections firm and durable.
Each σ-board variant has its normal soldered PCB counterpart
with identically arranged control elements and connectors,
thus fitting the same pannel plate. So, if a more rigorous
construction is desired, the user may easily transform the
module into a soldered version.
For all σ-board's variants dedicated blank panels are available..
