One More Time!

Well after a handful of suggestions from Mike and the DIYC community, I have re-spun the PCB without resistors and without a top plane and a couple other changes.

Here’s a list:

  • All traces are on top without using a polygon for a power plane.
  • Bottom is not cut by any traces (other than the version text) since all traces are on top.
  • J1-6 is no longer ground
  • No 45° angles coming off non-round pads for under-etching.
  • Trace from U1-8 to decoupling C1 is very short.
  • Removed resistors and reduced size after testing breadboard reliability without resistors.
  • Squished the U1 placement silkscreen so it’s not on the solder pads
