My first PCBs have arrived!
So I should be excited, right? Well, hold on. Here is the back side of the board;
........... Not my finest moment, that's for sure. So I'm left with with the task of McGyvering a way to solder a cap, and then a voltage reg. on top of it. Afterwards HOPEFULLY it just works.
In addition to that I am working on the next iteration of the board. I'm considering all of the problems the current board has, coming from the obvious ones (see above), the mechanical ones that will make it difficult to combine this board with the body Ryan is developing (current one fits but could stand to be .5mm to 1mm wider), and the manufacturing minded ones that will inflate the price of the board (such as having components on both sides of the board as opposed to one).
Till next time
