Initial boards are on their way

My version of the ubiquitous USB serial port gizmo

The first boards from OSHPark are on their way. There is on error on the boards, but it's not very important - the "Geppetto Electronics" is on the top silk layer instead of the bottom, so it's interrupted and covered by all the components. The next version will fix that.

The OSHPark shared project board is here, but because of the QFN chips, you should use a stencil for the pasting. I got one at OSHStencils. You can make one from the paste gerber using the EAGLE files in this project's file section.

The TTL variant is being processed by OSHPark right now.
