Test PCBs ordered from manufacturer!
Just a note to say that the first set of prototype PCBs have been ordered from the manufacturer. I should see them within 2 weeks and begin final testing on the build as well as being able to start creating the build instructions.
As you can see from the file above, there are only 2 major components and nothing is surface mounted. That means an easy kit for even a beginner builder. The final size of the PCB will be a bit smaller than 2.5" x 2". Though the prototype boards won't be that pretty green color... you'll see pictures of a fully built unit very soon!
Thanks again for all of the support! You've inspired me to put on the working gloves and roll at a faster pace!
