Final mechanical refactor of the ABC before moving onto electrical design

Originally published at:

In this video, Chris decides to move more into the “electrical design” stage, rather than endlessly trying to optimize everything. This results in one final refactor of the breakaway section to try and optimize for space, and then leaving future changes for when more is known about the components are officially chosen and placed on…

I don’t know how many other people are watching these videos, but they’re really worthwhile. There’s a big jump in complexity compared to the other CE video series, and even though this kind of thing isn’t something I’m going to be building myself anytime soon, seeing the way that Chris gets started is really helpful. So far it’s mostly been mechanical design (very space constrained and kind of awkward, so more realistic than a throwaway test board), but I think we’re moving on to some power management next.
