OpenBeacon Mini Proto PCB Layout Complete

I managed to finish the layout of the OpenBeacon Mini prototype PCB in KiCad this evening while livestreaming on Twitch. A 3D rendering from KiCad is above. It looks about how I sketched it out and wasn’t too nasty to route, so I got that going for me. So I’ll get on order off to the PCB fab soon. I’d like to get some PCBs completed before Chinese New Year, so I can’t delay very long.

While I’m waiting for my PCBs to be manufactured, there’s still plenty to do. Twitch streaming is kind of nerve-wracking for me yet kind of fun, so I plan to do more. I have a little more gear on the way that will allow me to also Twitch stream from my workbench, so that you can spy over my shoulder there as well. I even have a USB webcam for my microscope so I’ll be able to connect that to Twitch for your viewing pleasure. Stop by sometime on the livestream and chat me up.
