2024-03-06 (W) RADARBadge Decorated PCB

The board needed some schematic changes and alterations to the layout. I added the USB port back and searched for screw terminals, but I found spring-loaded versions that did not require a tool, which was superb for this application. I started with a couple of options for the battery, then settled on a design that could accept one or two battery holders. I changed the motor footprint based on the previous prototype board.

The lightbulb image required two programs to make it usable in the online PCB editor. I used GIMP to isolate the outline and white portions, and then I used QCAD to convert the vectors into a DXF. I probably could have done everything in Inkscape, but I am less familiar with that program.
