I wonder if the complete hardware data for the BBB are available somewhere: I found some Gerber files defining the PCB, a BOM defining the used components but I did not found a CPL that describes which component has to be placed at which position.
So…aren’t these data open and available for free?
You can get that out of the Allegro file that is provided aling with all of that. I do not recall if we ever provided that as a separate file or not.
You should be able to get that also out of the Altium version as well.
thanks for the feedback. Where can one download the Altium version? I only found the one with the Gerber-files…
I just looked, the XY data is in the zip file under the MFG (Manufacturing) directory.
I afraid I have to come back to this: sure this is the latest version of the layout? It makes use of the Alps SCHA5B0200 microSD card connector which is discontinued and which does not seem to have a compatible replacement!?
It may not be the latest. That conenctor was replaced a while back.
Any idea where I could get the latest version from? I of course would modify it for my own but it does not really worth to pay X000,00 Dollars for Altium just for my few boards…
I am no longer involved with the manufacturing. I remember ordering a bunch of them a while back. As it says on the WIKI, if you have any questions, contact Jason Kridner. He is handling the manufacturing. I am not aware if they made any changes or not.
The BOM on the WIKI for the BBB is a .csv file, I never used .csv files so I have no idea where that came from and it has not been changed from the original design from a part number standpoint on that connector.
Great, thanks, I’ll try that
