The first prototype pc boards have arrived!
Looks like I'll be busy! Each board has 332 individual parts, and the DSP chip alone has 100 pins! Slow and steady wins this race for sure. If things go well, in about a week I'll have photos of the first working E370.

Your units are robotics assembled and soldered by 2 types of machines. They are a LOT faster.
