Custom Printed Circuit Board

 

A custom printed circuit board was created for the Saturn DataLink.

 

Assembled Saturn DataLink PCB (V1.1) - Original Thru-hole version

 

Assembled DataLink PCB (V1.1) - Surface mount version

 

These two circuit board assemblies are functionally the same.  The surface mount version is the newest design.  It was designed in order to try to reduce costs.  The board size is smaller (but still uses the same plastic enclosure).  Also a usb chip is used, instead of the expensive thru-hole usb module.
