I was hoping you’d jump in here and provide some input, love the work you have done on the EXT board!
In reference to the SOPine/SoEdge, I will be working on converting the board dimensions/layout to completely replace the DevTerms “main” board as a drop in replacement.
The design concept for the replacement battery board is complete, currently I’m at a stall due to several factors. First is the connector to the main board, the one that the DevTerm battery module uses is a thru-hole component and after hours of searching through digikey, mouser, and lcsc I have come up empty.
The second problem I’ve run into was dimensions, I will follow DustinWoods advice and reach out to clockwork support to see if they are willing to release them to the community.
Since I do not currently own a DevTerm I was hoping to have the bottom cover 3d printed, however the .obj file that’s provided on the github isn’t broken down into the various components and when the file is uploaded to online printing services, I’m getting a cost in excess of $600 for the print as-is.
My next task is to see if the layers can be separated in the provided model so the price can be brought down to a reasonable cost.
Schematic for the batt board is below, please remember that it is not dimensionally correct. The board cut-outs are so that a “velcro” strap is placed through the board to secure the battery, example shown below. I welcome any ideas, comments, or thoughts and if I’ve overlooked something stupidly simple/complex please feel free to put me through the ringer!
