[...] Also the XTAL will be reoriented, the eagle sketch was not very clear about the traces going to the XTAL.
Can someone please point out the acid traps, i dont quite understand what they are.
Hi,Quote from: totalis on June 12, 2011, 05:29:15 PM[...] Also the XTAL will be reoriented, the eagle sketch was not very clear about the traces going to the XTAL. I thought it was your own design??It is my own design, but when i put the XTAL down on the eagle sketch, it looked alot bigger and so i ended up routing the traces to avoid the silkscreen and not the XTAL traces...Thanks for the info. acid traps are not something i had considered, i will try to avoid them in the next revision.T
Hi there,Seeing it assembled immediately makes me think you should use SMD caps and voltage regulator. It looks dangerously heavier on one side, and much taller too. It would make routing traces easier, especially if you replaced the resistors with SMD ones too. Is there any particular reason for the TH components?Thanks for the info on acid traps — not something I've come across before.Looking good!Barnaby
