Well couple of updates on the hardware
- Smaller footprint (17.20x17.48 mm), and now is symmetric once put on a board which was driving me crazy previously : ) Hand soldering smd stuff in on a tinier board was less painful than I imagined luckily. I still have a few big ones available at https://www.tindie.com/products/gorky/restio-model-o/ but will soon update the specs and images and will start shipping smaller ones.
And coming up next
- A better pcb micro layout. I needed to learn a bit more of eagle but hopefully soon my micro usb sockets will be super stuck onto the tiny boards with much more mechanical strength based roughly following usb standards.
- I am planning to try qfn package for the mcu. Seems like a good smd adventure.
- If I can complete next couple of software upgrades I have in mind will probably amuse myself with a small upgrade from 16f1455 to 16f1459. Simply said more ports.
