About

Hi! My name is Damien Maguire. I am an electronics engineer based in the southeast of Ireland. For over 8 years now I have been combining my love of cars with my commitment to sustainable technology by converting BMWs into electric vehicles and making videos on all aspects of the process. Thanks to some amazing connections, in the summer of 2017 I acquired a large Tesla drive unit. This began an odyssey of reverse engineering and design of open source control boards for Large and small Tesla Model S drive units and the 10kw Gen 2 battery charger. These designs went through many revisions and thanks to the support of people both here on Patreon and elsewhere, I succeeded in this mission.

These designs represent the ONLY open source and completely free way to run Tesla components in an EV conversion. Programmable configurable and scalable for your application. Recently I even tested the large drive unit on a race track but the less said about my driving skills the better!

So what now? Well, I've got the bug and want to keep hacking and open sourcing solutions to let you use OEM electric vehicle components in your projects. Sadly, that costs money and that's where your support is invaluable. I can't keep doing this without help so why not jump in, help out and get a sneak preview of my next mad project :)


Goals
$1,438 of $1,500 per month
Design, prototype and release an open source logic board to run the Tesla Model 3 drive unit.
