So new PCBs arrived this morning, fresh from DirtyPCBs. Obviously they need building and testing before I can say they are awesome (I'll remove the battery from the smoke alarm before turning them on):
The two designs are the CoreOne and AmpOne. I have some parts, need to order other parts from Mouser. So I shall get right on that.
CoreOne is cramped, having tried to do single sided SMD parts only; this would be better for manufacturing as it would reduce cost and allow wave/jet soldering of the through hole parts. If I ever get any significant quantity manufactured, assuming they will work...
My priority is getting the XMOS chip up and alive and talking with the XMOS development tools, then I would like to try some of their examples for Ethernet and USB. This could get interesting....
