To fix that, I am going to build a simple stand alone Si570 BreakOut Board, which will only contain an Si570 and Header Pins. If this works, it will be useful for verifying my BP and also it will be useful for other standard ProtoBoard experiments.
|Proposed Si570 BreakOut Board|
Using standard pin order requires a trace on the backside with the accompanying two via's. Two additional via's will help tie the front and back ground planes together. All soldering for the Headers will be done on the top side, because Homebrew boards do not have plated through holes, and therefore it would be difficult to solder under the Headers on the back side.
I could have included the two required I2C Pullup Resistors, but no, I wanted this to be a generic as possible.
This maybe a very useful board for my future projects, it is a simple task to make several copies while making the first, using the Toner Transfer (TT) Method.
