Alvaro USB C Pro Micro Clone
« on: Sat, 17 October 2020, 05:13:00 »
Just wanted to make a USB C Pro Micro clone I could easily solder together that doesn't use parts I can barely see and will disappear when I breath on them. Soldering one takes about an hour for me. I'm also fairly certain it works with JLC PCBA.

The photo is of V1.0 whereas the renders are of the updated (edit: V1.2), where I added a 1206 polyfuse footprint.

I was looking for 'wasted' space on v1.0 and couldn't see any yet you managed to fit a 'big' fuse on v1.1 - very impressive!

Thanks for sharing the files :thumb:

Easier to solder? Good work!

I noticed that the pins on short edge are those of the older Goldfish revision B, not matching Goldfish revision C and Elite-C.
Was that intentional or a gaffe? ;)

Thank you! 1.2 is even tighter for better compatibility with pin headers :)

Most definitely a gaffe but thankfully it was just the silkscreen that was off! The pins electrically match the Elite C and Goldfish Rev C :) fixed for 1.2!

I've got a set coming in next week from JLCPCB. Nice work! Can't wait to try these out.
