Today, the team received the new PCB from JLCPCB. Right away, Ryan and Antoine started assembling it. It took around 4 hours to solder on all the new components. If you look closely at the second picture, you'll see that we're missing components. That's because we ran out of 220 ohm resistors, so we'll have to go shopping tomorrow... As soon as we get those, we'll be able to start testing the foundry with our latest program. Our new program incorporates a bunch of new features that were made possible by designing a new circuit board.
Yesterday, the team finalized the foundry's circuit. We ordered a new PCB from a manufacturer in China. We should be getting it next week. It takes 2 days to manufacture and 3 days to ship!
