So I ordered a lot of components (spares as well) to build up some boards, they have nearly all arrived over the past couple of days. Will look to start build up boards ASAP.
Been trying to tidy up designs a little, such as using cheaper diodes and regulators. On the diode side I keep getting that wrong. Found some cheap SS14 diodes in SOD-123 package, so ordered the SMA version instead. Before that I also thought I had ordered some SOD-123 B140 diodes, and they are SMA as well. .Have a lot of SMA diodes I don't need now...
Some of the parts are moisture sensitivity level 3, meaning you have 168 hours to solder them before you have to bake them before certain types of soldering. Hoping to get these mounted at the weekend, not sure how hand soldering affects moisture sensitive parts, but I shall get it out of the way and not worry about it.
