First Printed Circuit Boards Have Arrived

The first Stenosaurus printed circuit boards (PCBs) arrived yesterday. Below is an image of a Stenosaurus PCB wth some components.

A few things to note about this image:

  • The key switches don't have key caps on them.
  • Other than the key switches, the only other component on the PCB is the processor (the black square in the top center of the image).
  • None of the components have yet been soldered onto the PCB.

I’m expecting to receive tomorrow the remaining components needed to complete the assembly of the circuit board. Once assembled, I’ll begin testing and report back here.

This project is launching soon.
