Thank you all ! :-)

That's done, the PCB is finalized. These last days, I worked on the optimization of the 4 layers routing, the density of the components (see below) prevent any automatic PCB routers to work well, so I had to manually re-work an important part of the traces design.

Maybe, wou have noticed a little logo near the name of the computer, it's a piece of coal.    Souvenirs...  :-)

Beautiful work Fabrice. Your site states that you will have a public offering on demand by the end of January. Is this still going to be the case? I would definitely be interested.

Thank you :-)

Yes, 4 layers. The PCB is finalized since several weeks,  as I had to do some expenses (nothing to do with the retro computing) I also differed the PCB production by some weeks. I used (and use again) this waiting time to optimize the routing of each layers. It's a funny brain teaser.   The layers are defined as follows:

- Signal/power

- GND

- Signal

- Signal/power

Thinking... What about making the PCB of the TiNY fit in a ATX tower!

Would be cool to have the "normal" tower for the TI and the then the space is not problem and there is a standard to make the electronic fit.

BUT, I love what your doing!

It looks so clean and... ohhh shit so desirable :P

Thank you  :-)

 

The PCB had to have screw holes, so I thought that as long as I place holes, I should place then respecting a standard. And ATX is the most common.

After that, the futurs acquirers will do as they like: Create their own case, use a Mini ATX case, use a modified PEB case or anything else :-)
