• New board idea...

    I want to get rid of the 40 freaking wires at the bottom, the only way to do this is to use thinner traces. Making it double-sided wouldn't help, the pads are in the way on both sides.

    I need to find out if this trace-width is acceptable for this board, the image below shows a rough idea of what i want. Normally i'm very strickt with 45 degrees angles, but in this case it's not really doable so i'm making the exception.

  • Next and last step

    I want to create a few breakout boards for easier connecting between the 40-pin cable and a breadboard project. My idea is to make a small board with a 40-pin boxed header (where the 40-pin flatcable plugs in) that is connected to two 20-pins female headers. The 20-pin headers can be used to connect wires to the project.

    I can make multiple of these and use them for many projects, when i want to work on a different project i can just switch the 40-pin flatcable with another one.

    More on this later!
