Rick, KA8BMA, has been working steadily on the CAD work for the SM2000 VHF Radio and the Rev A (prototype) PCB layout is now complete and ready for manufacture. Neil, VK5KA, an experienced RF Engineer, has been working with Rick on the PCB layout to ensure RF integrity. Thank you both for your fine work!
Here is the top layer of Rev A, which is 160mm x 160mm:
It’s a modular design, if you zoom in you can see the names of each module.
Edwin at Dragino is kindly assembling some prototypes for us, and I hope to start bringing up the board in early June.
