  • I am considering this board because I could scrape off the copper under the sensor with a knife or flat screw driver. Also, looks like the trace form VCC misses, but this was probably luck and not careful adherence to datasheet recommendations.

  • The datasheet for the HMC5883L magnetometer has specific instructions and diagrams regarding PCB copper layout. Amongst others - no conducting copper under/near the sensor in any of the PCB layers - yet both the photos and Eagle files show both active traces and spare copper under the sensor. I was considering using this board, but it seems the PCB designers have not consulted the datasheet correctly. The same is true where this sensor is also used in the 9DOF Razor IMU. Could the PCBs be changed in the future?

No public wish lists :(
