, I am thinking 2 rows of drill holes between
the traces should be added in the area highlighted above. The purpose is to allow for easier re-routing of wires. Instead of routing wires all the way around the side of the adapter, wires can be routed through the drill holes. In doing so, I think one of the edge routing slots can be removed making the adapter a little thinner. This will allow the adapter to have a bolt pushed through the edge card without touching adapter. What do you think?
I any case, so far this is fantastic. This going to be a project for @Segasonicfan
Sync Cleaner Pro v1.0. I will be adding +5vdc meters for this to complete the aesthetic. As for bridging the solder jumpers, I had a little trouble with getting the blobs to connect. They would always dissect on their own. Perhaps it is JLCPCB's fab of the boards; perhaps the solder pads are too small. Never ran into this problem jumpering CSP2 B-boards or Infinikeys. But I found a technique that worked and I'll pass it on to anyone:
- Apply iron to both solder pads at a time
- Add solder until a bridged blob forms
- Then the key is to lift the iron off the pad first
- Then in rapid succession, remove solder before solder solidifies
So a boom-boom 1-2 motion with lifting the iron and solder from the jumper pads is all that is needed to form a bridged solder blob. Pics when this is done.
