I finished a board

Gotta redo it, though.

Had some out-of-civilisation time this weekend to chill and work on boards without distractions.

J2 will be a 1.27mm pitch SMD male header, soldered onto the original microcontroller's empty footprint. Thanks to @christoph and @zakqwy for sanity checking my footprint and stopping me from doing something dumb like special ordering 0.65mm pitch headers.

This is my third board in Upverter, and I'm actually pretty impressed!

It also saves history states in a fun way.

So I laser cut the outline to make sure it will work with my requirements.

It definitely won't. It extends way too far in both directions. I'll redesign the PCB to extend down, just to the left of the LED line.

Fortunately, I think I'll be able to manage shoving it into the case when I have the planar dimensions correct.
