More PCB's ordered

A project log for QubeCast Max

QubeCast Max is a high powered radio module for PocketQube Satellites, HAB payloads, or anything that needs a small radio transciever.

In order to actually operate the radio, I need to connect it to an Arduino. I've made an adapter board for a 3.3V Arduino Pro Mini, which connects it to the PQ60 format board. I've added a couple of jumpers to select the power source, as the onboard 3.3V regulator won't power the QubeCast Max!

I'll probably just use a breadboard power supply to feed 3.3V into the Vcc pin or the Arduino, and the 3.3V Bus pins on the PQ60 Connector.

The local new PCB manufacturer isn't accepting orders at the moment :-( so I'm going to try out Itead this time. Just to get the feel of the process :-)
