So I’ve seen lots of posts about design rules for various boardhouses, and I designed a layout that I think (famous last words) would work just about anywhere:
BUT after looking at prices for a prototype vs at my university makerspace, I’m likely going to be making something myself on 2 layer FR2. They are pretty anti-chemicals, so I’m not sure I’ll even be able to use a solder mask. I’m guessing I’m not going to be able to solder something that doesn’t short things out. On the plus side, I only need 1 for now, so I can take the time to tweak things if need be.
Anything I can do in layout to make this easier on myself? I’ve got all the traces on the back and a ground plane on front. All the components are through hole, and go through the front except for the headers, which I’ll need to mount on the reverse of the board for access.
