My old boards were an incredible step forward, but they had limited functionality, were not built with power/input/simplicity in mind, sometimes were unreliable, and were starting to die.

The new boards have proper ground planes plus some cool new features I have been planning for longer than I can remember, including:  Changing clock speeds, an RTC, and slots for IO and memory cards.  Also it adds support for USB keyboards and an ATX power supply.  I can't wait, execpt I dont have all the connectors I need to make it do everything, but it will still be awesome when I get it.

Here is a pic from KiCad:

You can take a peek for yourself, I will upload the files.

Good day Hackers!
