Posting back twice in the same day ha!!!! Laughing aside I finished the Sensor Module from earlier, the source files can be found here along with a PDF of the schematic:

Overall the design didn't take that long, I have working circuits for both the DCDC and FreeScale so all I had to do was copy the schematic and the board took not much longer. In order to keep the costs down I made the PCB as small as possible and kept it to 2 layers. Soon I will order the board from OSHPark and write the firmware using the Motate hardware abstraction system found here: Motate is essentially a embedded hardware abtraction library written in C++ sort of like Arduino but with a focus on performance instead, I've played with it before and the FreeScale chip I used is supported by it.
