The original creech chase board hasn't stood the test of time. It overheats, only does one (pretty boring) pattern, and doesn't play nicely with modern LEDs. Wouldn't it be great if it did something more exciting?

We decided to rebuild it from the ground up. Our newly designed board has the following features:

  • Plug n Play installation
  • Trailing edge AC dimming
  • 14 Unique Chase Patterns
  • Fully controllable pattern selection (via DIP switches)
  • Random or Linear pattern selection (via DIP switch)
  • Compatible with OCD GI (rev 4 and above) and Afterglow GI boards

What are OCD GI and Afterglow GI boards?

CFTBL and games of that era use a feature called "GI fading", which fades the background lighting in the game during certain modes to create atmosphere. It is designed to work with incandescent bulbs, and when using LEDs they flicker horribly during the fading sequence, to the point where its usually disabled. The OCD GI and Afterglow GI boards were built so that LEDs could also be used when using this feature. 

The Chase Echo has been designed to be compatible with these boards, however some additional cabling and installation steps are required. If you aren't running these boards (and if you don't know, you probably aren't) just order the base version and enjoy an easier installation.

Board Revisions:

v1.2 - This revision uses AC voltage and trailing edge fading, meaning that this board is polarity agnostic. It will plug straight in and work out of the box. Due to the extra components and build time this board is more expensive than v1.

v1.0 - This revision uses DC voltage running pulse width modulation (pwm) fading, meaning that the board is polarity sensitive. Due to this, the orientation of all LEDs in the chase ramp and whirlpool need to be facing in the correct orientation before they will light. This makes for a more difficult installation. If you would prefer an easier and more 'plug and play' installation, choose the v1.2 board. Only existing stock of this board will be available to purchase.
