So, I sent this ^^^ to OSH Park tonight!
Realize that there are a number of things I would do differently if this were not my first design. Some things are intentionally done “not recommended by IPC”; and I have a reason for this. I want to determine for myself what the effects are if not done according to the almighty IPC. I’ve been a military avionics technician for a very long time now. I’ve seen things work well for a very long time that the IPC frowns upon.
Only thing I forgot to do in the design was trying the new IPC approved oval pads on the SMD parts.
I do have one question though, “How likely are the Gerbers that I generated with OSH Park settings to be compatible with other fab houses?”
GIANT THANKS to EVERYONE here on the forum. I’ve learned things from almost every post.
