Without too much difficultly, I finished my Minima VFO Module (see description and PCB Layout on previous post). Currently I do not have a way to program the Si570, but with power connected, the Module outputs its default RF signal.
The board is 1.0 x 1.2 inches, the homebrew vias are 40 mil pads with 12 mil holes. Solder Wipe was used for copper protection.

I plan to create an equivalent circuit using the Si5351 chip (as previously posted). It will look similar to this board, but it will have three output SMA connectors.
