CPU board

A project log for Stripboard Meets KiCad

Using KiCad to design and layout stripboard PCB projects

A stripboard layout was done for the Street Sense CPU board.   This board is mainly just to interface various PCB modules, switches, display, etc to the ESP32.  This layout is dense and took a lot of time to figure out.  Maybe not such a good stripboard candidate, but it all fit (barely)

Here is the schematic and PCB layout

Front side

Back side

The plated through hole construction of the stripboard PCBs offers the option of placing components on both the front and back sides.  I located three connectors on the back side which provides an elegant means for connecting to PCBs and a LiPo battery housed inside the enclosure
