2019-11-09 (Sa) Electronic Badge for San Antonio B-Sides 2019BSidesBadge

C00p3er from the Dangerous Minds Podcast asked for my help making a soldering kit/badge for 2019 B-Sides San Antonio. Badge making has interested me for a long time, but the complexity of some past examples makes it a daunting task. C00p3r and the organizer wanted a simple badge that could double as a beginner soldering kit.

Enough background

A project was started by c00p3r on EasyEDA which contained a graphic of the circuit and a sugar skull graphic. The schematic graphic came from an Instructable that detailed how to make an LED flasher circuit. At this point, I didn't know if this was intended to be a soldering kit or just a simple flasher, so I constructed it with easy-to-handle insertion-mount components.

After talking with c00p3r, the sugar skull graphic needed to be resized. We decided on a board with rounded edges 100mm by 75mm and one that had a clip notch in the top so a lanyard could be attached. All of the components were moved into the corners not occupied by the skull.

The dimensions for the board could have been narrower but there would not be any significant cost saving, and it was already close to a standard badge that is three inches by four inches. We talked about the possibility of ordering boards from other fab houses but EasyEDA will probably get the order and will certainly get the first trial.

I took the liberty of adding a blank on the back where folks could write their names or handles if they wanted. In the upper left corner, I included the event name, rev number, and in more subtle letters, my name and c00p3r's name.
