Basic USB Breakout v1.1

2 layer board of 1.78 x 0.71 inches (45.3 x 17.9 mm).
Shared on March 18th, 2017 22:33

Breadboard-compatible USB breakout board. Not suitable for USB3.

The micro-USB connector has surface mount pads which may be easier to solder with paste or tinned pads and a hot plate, toaster oven, or hot air rework station.

The Basic Breakouts Github repo has the design files and parts list.

E202VAR VLF Radio Receiver v1.4

2 layer board of 2.21 x 3.21 inches (56.1 x 81.5 mm).
Shared on March 14th, 2017 18:55

An open source version of Renato Romero’s portable E202 VLF radio receiver, made with permission.

This board was built and verified by listening through headphones. It needs a full test of functionality, but I leave that to someone in the VLF community with the appropriate test equipment.

The Github repo has the design and parts list.
