A lot of info on this wiki is for trying to better understand and streamline DIY fusors. Ultimately I (JM) would like to do a Kickstarter campaign to produce a fusor kit
The aim of the kit is to accelerate DIY fusors. People struggle sourcing suitable surplus electronics despite that these could be made pretty low cost. Therefore, this project focuses on making a standard hobby fusor electronics platform. It should standardize:
While I'd like to focus on computer control, I'm guessing the target market will have a general preference for knobs and dials. Therefore the setup must remain accessible to both sets of users. This is not believed to incur considerable design complexity. I'd ideally like to implement this as stuffing options on the PCB to keep costs down for users that don't require it.
Minimum viable product: a computer controlled high voltage power supply. This would be a great first step and technology demonstrator.
In more detail:
Out of scope:
Support? Although I don't mind doing development, how much assembly and such do I want to do myself? Repairs?
Mini IEC system?
Very low output flux
