The first tests show that they are in perfect working order:

What’s New?

The boards are currently at version 2.1. This hardware revision is almost identical to the version 2.0, with a few small changes:

  • The footprint for the SHT21 temperature/humidity sensor is gone, since we now always use the superior SHTC3 sensor.
  • The footprint for the capacitor C2 was removed, since it’s not required in practice.
  • The silkscreen was optimized for easier assembly.

Available Variants

To simplify assembly and logistics, we stopped offering different versions of the board. All boards now include all features and sensors. Furthermore, all boards are fully assembled, the solder-it-yourself version is not available anymore. We have slightly reduced the price of the PCB though, so it’s currently available for 45 CHF.
