Completed build of SensorBoard v2 for Contextual Electronics

Filed under: Contextual Electronics — Brooke @ 4:34 pm

I had time last night to work in the SensorBoard v2. I was able to laser cut the stencil, paste, place, reflow and visually inspect. Next stop will be to plug it in and test. During the fab downtime, I have been writing test applications for all the different sections. This should shorten my bring up time.

This board is a replacement due to issues  ran into where the copper was exposed outside of the pads that caused shorts to ground in many places.  It turns out that at some point, KiCAD changed a default setting which caused the issue.  You can read more about it on the CE forums.
