Check out the pinout!

A project log for 65uino

6502 based learning in a familiar form factor

With the enormous amount of through hole pins near the board edge, one of the harder things I've postponed for the next revision is silkscreen text with the pinout. 

Even with a relatively well known pinout like for an Arduino Uno, you're still going to let out the magic smoke if you were "at least 60% sure that pin was GND and not 5V", so somehow I need to squeeze in the pinout on the bottom silkscreen. Probably it'll take some time and involve little lines or arrows to point the text to the pins, to make sure it doesn't look like random gibberish on the bottom side.  

For the past couple of weeks I've been frantically editing my introduction video for the 65uino, in the little free time I have. The video also doubles as an introduction to I2C on a 6502 platform, and since that also needs a graphic showing the pinout, you get a preview here.

Hopefully I'll find the time to update the PCB silkscreen when the video is out.
