Still progressing on the PCB design. Pretty much placed every part around their final location. Some tweak will happen once I route the board for sure. Not finish yet but it look pretty cool already :) .

I've change the pin assignment for a few adapter cables to make things a bit more consistent and also allow the use of the BOOT switch by the firmware.

BOOT switch will be used to gracefully disassociate all controllers at once. This will prevent the need to manually shutdown PS3, PS4 & XB1 controllers at system power off.

I will also add an error red LED to notify user that something went wrong, power cycle required. This is mostly for SD card issues, using the PCB I think those errors will be rare unless no SD is connected.

This looks fantastic!  It sure beats having to wire the breadboards :)
