Zero Point Breakout Board
« on: March 19, 2013, 10:11:08 AM »
Brian, could you share how you created the breakout board for the ZPSDX and anything you would do differently in the future?

Thanks,

madbean

It's really simple: the rotary switch part is part of the design and the dimension layer is simply routed around it so that the two boards are connected by the little tab. Most fab houses should be able to do that...I've done it a couple times with OSH Park prototypes, too.

One thing I will probably do differently in the future is use different rotary switches. There are some smaller Alpha switches available now, although I don't think there is a 1P12T. But, they do have a 1P6T, 2P3T and 2P4T. I'll probably use these in some upcoming projects.
 
Here's the 2P4T which I am using in a (non-madbean) project: http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=SR1712F-0204-20F0A-N9-9virtualkey14860000virtualkey105-SR1712F-24NS

I got myself a few of those switches off mouser.  do you know of a eagle component that matches it?
