After encountering several problems with the custom boards a whole new revision was made. The same circuit was used since all the changes took place on the board layout.
  • Different transistor footprints were used because the old ones used pads that touched each other.
  • The length of the board was shortened so that two boards could be fit onto a single blank copper slab.
  • The Arduino was turned 90° so the programming port could be accessed without removing anything.
  • Rearranging the Arduino also made the serial port easier to tap onto.
  • Rearranging the Arduino also made the analog pins easier to tap onto.
  • Traces were made thicker.
  • Clearances between traces, other traces, and components were widened.
