The first prototype run of boards has arrived from OSH Park! Looking very pretty.

First boards on envelope

The parts arrived from Digikey last week so all I need is some time to build it up. Testing the through-hole components in their places reveal the DC jack to fit very loosely as KiCAD doesn't support slotted plated holes. As well as this, the micro USB doesn't fit the front holes and will have to have the pins bent into place. I suppose this is why we do prototypes!
