rosco_m68k: PCBs Have Arrived!

An exciting day here – after several months of delays (firstly due to me procrastinating followed by production delays due to Coronavirus) the PCBs for my retro m68k computer have arrived!

Fresh off the plane!

I eventually decided to have these made by JLCPCB in China, and I have to say I’m very impressed with the quality and finish. On unpacking I immediately noticed a couple of things I didn’t spot before sending the gerbers off, but those are my mistakes – the fab is actually pretty much perfect. Drill is spot on and the silkscreen is lined up perfectly.

Obviously how satisfied I am may change once I get the components soldered on, but I’m pretty confident that the board will be absolutely fine. I’ll update here once I’ve done that.

Now, off to start soldering 🙂
