    This is par of a (RGB) led cube 8x8x8 controler.

    It's a catode/anode led controller/driver that if it is ment to be used in RGB LED cude configuration, just stacks on top of each other three times in a tower. It's designed to use M3 spacers, very cheaply available on ebay.

    It uses 74hc495, and you can configure on witch side(of a board: left/right) will be -serial input- and -serial output- with two jumpers (U17 - U22), basicly a blob of solder should work just fine. On the output of last 74hc495 on the board, there is a one AND gate as buffer.

    For output stage, it uses 74VHC541 3-stage non-inverting buffers to drive LEDs via 100/220ohm resistors.

    All the M3 holes positions markings are labeled in project itself.
    The pins are(from left to right) on both sides: GND-VCC-Latch(RCLK)-Clock(SRCLK)-Data(Serial) in/out --->(nice video about 74hc495(s) from -kevin darrah-)

    8 100uF tantalum with 2 100nF ceramic caps (are overkill) should provide very stable power source for LEDs and shift registers.
    Connectors from resistors to LEDs are 8 pin SMD 1.25mm spacing (
