  • If you would add a couple of thin slots on either side of the connector, a user could add a Zip-Tie, which could then be placed around the connector and thru to the back of the board and give it a fair bit of mechanical strength. You would have to move the vias that are on either side, near the back of the connector as that is where the slot would go.

    Virtually zero cost to add, other than the slight bump on the PC fab costing for the extra holes.

  • Maybe I’m missing something, but shouldn’t the ground pin on the USB connector be connected to the GND net? I wondered about it in the tutorial, and when I downloaded the SparkFun version of the Eagle files, sure enough it isn’t routed from the connector on the board layout.

No public wish lists :(
