Do you now have a teensy and headers to test the layout?
I demand pictures when they arrive!

Boards have arrived.  Pics to arrive on site tomorrow.  Now I just need to find 2 people who would purchase one of the spares.  Heading over to the Classifieds section to post a thread for it.

Looking something like this, I suppose:



Yes, I secretly ordered 3 of them as well. But I will most likely be using all 3 of mine. Once I complete my move to my new house, I will revisit my 40% build and rewire it using this breakout board to connect the Teensy. :)

I haven't really finalized the layout yet. I don't want to derail this thread, but I will be discussing my little design further in my "Keyboard Prototyping" thread (link in my signature). :)

jdcarpe: have you had a chance to line up a teensy with the breakout board, or try and put headers through it? Melvang showed that the mounting holes are OK in his classified thread but I'm itchin' to hear that the teensy part is OK also!

It lines up perfectly. Now I just need to solder it in there and take a pic. :)

Got six of those break-out boards in the mail yesterday.  Absolutely spiffy!

Now I've got to order some more Teensys...  Should have done that at the same time, but I didn't expect OSH Park to turn my order around so quickly.

If you haven't placed your order yet for the Teensys, hold off for a day or so. I've contacted them about possible price breaks for a quick GB. I don't think Massdrop is going to pick this up.

Will you let me know also if you do this? I'd like to pick up 3 teensies.

I just saw this thread today.  I'm interested to see what people might have done with these boards.  Anyone have any updates or pics related to their build progress?  Also if anyone still needs someone to split a purchase with I might be interested.

I really should have walked around more and talked to Ming less (sorry Ming!).  Man, I missed a lot of cool stuff.  Any pics though?  Still haven't seen any floating around here.

Not soldered in yet, and I don't have the extra pins placed, but you can get an idea of what it looks like. You could always remove the spacers from the header pins to lower the profile a bit.

That's looking good!  Also a timely reminder to get the right type of Teensy 2.0, the only one I have on hand is the non-pin model.   :-X

So I heard back from Paul at PJRC, and the good news is that we really can save a little bit on a large order.

For the Teensy 2.0 without pins, PJRC charges $16. Shipping using the cheapest option was (for me at least) $3.80. Total of $19.80.

If I take orders for at least 25 units, I can get one unit to you for $17.50 shipped, including PP fees. Additional units $15 each, plus a small shipping difference, with the maximum additional shipping being $3.30.

If the total ordered is 100 or more, the price decreases to a base of $16 shipped, with additional units at $13.50.

Add ~$3 per unit if we want them with header pins.

So what does everyone think? Is it worth doing a GB? Should I put up a GB thread with a short time frame?

I think it is totally GB worthy.
I do not know if there is enough members that will want some to get up to 100+ unless there are a lot of phantom users that don't have teensy 2.0's but it is at least worthy of a IC thread.

would you be interested in including a option to buy the breakout boards that OldDataHands built in the IC/GB thread?

I am down for 3 of the teensys for certain. I am also planning on having 3 breakout boards made, but I don't think it is worthwhile to try to organize that into a group buy. I would be interested in that though, if it did go to gb.

In order to use the mini-PCB breakout boards, we'd need the type with pins, correct?

I'd be in for 4-6 units, depending on final price.

So I heard back from Paul at PJRC, and the good news is that we really can save a little bit on a large order.

For the Teensy 2.0 without pins, PJRC charges $16. Shipping using the cheapest option was (for me at least) $3.80. Total of $19.80.

Also, I could get the header pins cheap, if they aren't soldered to the Teensy. Anyone opposed to soldering them to the Teensy yourself?

This would increase the base price by probably less than $0.50, instead of $3.

It is not difficult to add pins to a teensy.  Even with good equipment it can be difficult to get the pins out of a teensy.  The tolerances are pretty tight so solder bridging is prevalent.

Okay, I will post a GB thread tonight, using the cheapest numbers I can work, and also including DIY header pins.

I will set a fixed price at the 25 unit price point, and if we get orders for 100+, I will update with the cheaper price.

sounds awesome. I concur that I would rather save the money and add the pins myself if needed. Sounds like a great deal. Thanks jd for setting it up.

Here are the updated gerbers (ready to be uploaded to OSHPark): (Attachment Link)
and here is the matching geda/pcb file: (Attachment Link)
and here is a rendering of the board: (Attachment Link)

and finally pricing: The board is just a hair over 2"x1" according to OSHPark. at $5/sq.in.
it comes to $10.15 for 3 of them, or roughly $3.38 per board, shipped (in the US).

We would have to order 80 of them to get into bulk pricing at OSHPark, which would get us to ~$2 per board,
and then someone would have to reship them all.  I think the hot setup is for anyone interested to put in their
order individually to OSHPark.

I've upped the mounting drill to 0.170 inches, which should be nice for your 6/32 mounting hardware.
The other drills are now at 0.044 to provide a bit more clearance for pins.
Plus, I've incorporated the the GH60 "GH" in the silkscreen for fun.

Some brave soul should call dibs, and order the first set to confirm it's correct before everyone dives in...

Can i add these to the CAD resource hub?

Great idea. I think they are sufficiently proved-out now that Melvang & jdcarpe
have both used them successfully.

Idea was spamray's.

I would really love for everyone to contribute as much to the thread as possible and just saturate that thread with as much data as possible :D

Got my email from OSH Park:

Your boards are being made as you read this!

We've sent the panel containing your boards to the fabricator. We expect to get them back around September 9th.

In case you're interested, there are 75 other orders on the panel along with yours, adding up to a total of 462 boards. Neat eh?

never had PCBs made before. this is fun. thanks for the design work!
I stay busy with work and family these days, but I'm still around, lurking.

Preferably the finished piece but if you don't have those I'd like the files.
