Printed Circuit Boards!

EDIT: there is a small error in the bread board design, we’re working on it!

An electrical engineer and top class chap by the name of Taylor Jones has very kindly designed a PCB for the AirPi! No more fiddling about with messy wires on a bread board! (though it still requires some soldering.) Here’s what it looks like and this is the schematic. You can download the file by right clicking this link to save as a .brd file, which you can use to order it online. It’s available under a Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 license.

    Excellent! I started drawing my own out, but luckily found your blog post.

    I hope to use a modified version of your AirPi for my research looking at photovoltaic lifetimes – lifetime with respect to temperature and humidity etc.

    I notice that there is a small discrepancy with the schematic and the build instructions. In the build instructions the DHT22 data line is pulled to 3.3v via the 10kohm resistor. In this schematic (and the circuit digram on the build page), its a pull down resistor. Which will probably prevent it from functioning correctly.
