PCB Version History

20171003First production PCB.

The PCB revision is identified in the board silkscreen.


PCB Revision 20171003

PCB Revision 20171003 was built with an incorrect hole diameter for the SYZYGY port mounting holes. These are the holes are either side of the SYZYGY connector. The holes on the 20171003 PCB are 2.7mm diameter.  The specified hole size per the SYZYGY specification is 3.2mm.

The 2.7mm diameter holes on PCB 20171003 will fit M2.5 thread size. The 04-40 thread size will fit, but not freely – it will need to be screwed into the hole.

The 3.2mm diameter holes (SYZYGY specified) will fit M3.0 and 04-40 thread sizes which have outer diameters of 3.0mm and 2.85mm, respectively.
