Hello folks.

I had a spare second, so whipped up version two(1B) of a Pi-cromite PCB.
The alpha board was developed with led-bloon over in the PCB MANUFACTURING forum a month or so ago. Some changes were made to that alpha layout, and this is what we have now:







This board accepts a Pi-Zero or Pi-Zero-W, and allows you to easily connect either an SPI LCD or an SSD1963-based LCD. Fully supports touch and all other PiCromite features. Pins on the LCD's etc are labelled, so you can easily ID a pin on the LCD header you are NOT using.

The board is designed to accept an SPI LCD module on the top, or you can plug into the 40-pin header on any supported SSD1963 LCD module. A couple of self-adhesive rubber feet as spacers would be required for 1963 LCD's, or a short IDE HDD lead could also be used to link the board to the LCD module.

I have ordered 10 boards for now, but if there is any interest here, please respond to this thread so I can try to gauge demand. If there is interest, I would be happy to release a constructor's pack(ZIP) with all the Gerber files, drill-data, BOM etc, then people could make as many as they want themselves.

Hell - all gone.

I will order some more, for anyone else wanting them.

Would members prefer I sell them finished boards, or would they prefer that I upload a constructors pack with the Gerber's etc so they can make their own?

Price per board would be US$3 at this stage.
Postage(airmail) would be US$2 - up to four PCB's can fit in one envelope.

What details would you like?
Dimensions diagram or something?
Board size is 93mm x 51mm if that helps.
