homemade hardware : first board

by admin

For my first board I decided to make the bootloader shield we’ve made in the previous weeks. Since I’ll probably be using this shield a lot, I thought making it look nicer than the one in the purfboard would be a step forward and a great exercise for learning how to use the OtherMill. At my first attempt I noticed that the OtherMill software ignored some of the routes I’ve made on the Eagle file, so I had to change that to make sure the software would mill all my paths. After the second run it was good to go; just soldered the components and it was done!
