[Little Brosers] Grounded in a tear drop shape

Ok so… Apart from spending 10 minutes to find a joke for this post’s title, I have well progressed on my Little Brosers tasks.

 

As I said in my previous post, this week as been all about PCBs. First some practice on the PCB design software and those 3 last days were dedicated to the drops’s schematic and PCB.

I’m happy to present you the very first version of our drop’s PCB :

 

To be honest, this is not fully ready yet. On tomorrow class I’ll improve the ground plan exclusion to shape it as a “U” letter.

Also I have to add some fixation holes and two targets for the component placing machine.

The round shape is mostly aesthetic. Since our product is called a “dead drop”, it seemed logical to make round.  It also reduces the size of the PCB since our biggest component is the round shaped battery holder. You can’t see it on the preview image but it is basically the same size than the PCB.

 

Cheers
