@jeti Thank you. Unfortunately havent had a chance to assemble the boards yet. Have all the parts in but life gets in the way
Damn! Just realized some of my parts are still not in....
Anyways, looking at the PCB,
@activemind those boxes are 56x95mm on the inside (I have lots of them). They have mounting points in the corners, about 1.5mm from the inner wall. The outer diameter of the mounting points is 5.5mm and the inner diameter is approximately 2mm.
Thanks for the measurements @mfalkvidd . I am still debating about increasing the PCB size though because I looked at one of my existing boxes with the DC connector I am planning to use, and I realized that I need little more space because the connector extend out.
Still playing with the placement on the PCB but looks like I have everything in place for now. Lets see what happens when I try to route it!
The only thing I am concerned about is will placing the comparator IC underneath the pro mini cause any issues?
A little off topic, but what PCB software are you using to do your illustrations and layout? It looks like nice software. Is it for windows only or is there a linux version?
I am a KiCad beginner. I started like a couple of days ago and this is my second PCB. Waiting for the first one to come back from fab house
Debating about changing the size to 5x9 size so that it can fit inside a 5x10 box like this
