PCB is 4-layer, with impedance control.
PCB dimensions: 100 x 100mm.
All the interfaces were successfully tested. All the features are working.
The first batch was sent to the first users (8 boards).
You can check my github page (for technical details) and twitter account (for the current project status).
Project is under development - I ordered PCBs and assembly for passive components.
I will receive PCBs boards in 3 weeks (up to the end of Feb), due to the Chinese new year.
Then I need about 1-2 weeks for assembly rest components (ICs, connectors) and to bring up hardware.
Here is the 3D model in PDF format and STEP file:
The hardest thing in this project is the PCIe M.2 slot implementation. I'm not sure for 100% if this will work but it seems that the design should be OK.
I would like to test SSD NMVe drives and Coral Edge TPU modules.
