Title: TR-9 PCB, 4-layer
Post by: pthrr on July 31, 2020, 03:58:01 PM
Hello everyone,

this thread shall serve as a way to organize design decisions and improvements for the upcoming 4-layer version of the TR-9 PCB.

I suggest FR-4 substrate with overall thickness of 1.2 mm. We should design components for automated assembly.
Maybe already for a specific manufacturer(JLCPCB?).

The stack-up would be as follows:
-. 35 um Top
-> 300 um Dielectric
-. 35 um GND
-> 550 um Dielectric
-. 35 um VCC
-> 300 um Dielectric
-. 35 um Bottom

So nothing too wild. Let me know what you think.
We also could take copper off Top/bottom and/or add width to the core for a more common(cheaper?) 1.6 mm overall thickness.

As was suggested, maybe we can use the additional space and add a bluetooth module, e.g. BLUENRG-132 as available from JLCPCB

Sounds good to me :)
