    Good luck with that.
    I see you are aiming at 2-layer boards only (4m x 4m is huge). I’m sure someone will ask for multilayer support, or track length matching or… whatever.

    Me? I’d just like something small & simple enough to work from a USB memory chip. 50cm x 50cm would be more than enough space, and 4-layers is enough to route [smaller] FPGA devices with a BGA pinout.

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
