Actually routing this is going to be a huge pain in the ass though. The pads are *super* close together.

I still haven't found a USB 3.1 PHY I can use yet, but oh well.

If I'm putting a USB-C connector on this new board and I should probably read the USB 3.1 spec... What's the worst that could happen?

I wish more manufactures did this kind of thing. Big props to @MolexConnectors@twitter.com for making my life easier.

Drawing parts in Eagle is strangely cathartic

This is my first time using Eagle with my new mouse and ohmygod it's so much better when middle and right click work as expected.

So, seeing as a Zynq was super overkill for this project, I'm ditching that and just grabbing an decent ARM chip from TI and bolting an Artix-7 to it over a bus.

The schematic and board view are also a lot laggier on my system.

I don't know how I feel about Eagle 9, I'm used to 6 and they changed a lot of the Icons, added a load of extra panels and moved everything around.

I really don't want to fan this out...

That and I'm going to need a drill much smaller than 0.3048mm for the vias for this, Ugh.

I feel like reverse engineering something

It's going to be fun figuring out how to ship a rack and a half worth of equipment plus all my other stuff to the U.K.. I suppose I can still put that off for a little bit longer.

This is the workflow I'd like to replicate in KiCad, but apparently It just can't do that.

I really want to like KiCad and move away from Eagle, but small things like this make it hard.

Can I really not have multiple schematic/board pairs in a single kicad project? Ugh...

I thought it was Friday for a minute. It's been a heck of a Monday.
