Custom libraries common to all schematics and PCB layouts
KiCAD 5.0 mcp_panel symbol library with all the custom schematic symbols used in the schematics on this page. You need this only if you want to open the source schematics below in KiCAD. There is also a PDF variant of all the KiCAD schematics and layouts.
KiCAD mcp_panel layout footprint library with all custom layout footprints used in the PCB layouts on this page. You need this only if you want to open the source PCB layouts below in KiCAD.
Arduino Master PCB V2.2
This the latest Arduino Master PCB design.
Compared to v2.1 the most important change is the clock signal for the Overhead panel 7-segment displays which can also be patched if you already have the v2.1 PCB (see the instructions at the v2.1 design files page).
Besides this change two pins have been added to the AFDS connectors in this new design to support red + amber LED’s for two AFDS switches (v2.1 has only 1 output signal per AFDS LED switch) and some PCB texts have been updated.
Interactive Bill of Materials (page takes some time to load)
Spreadsheet with a more detailed list of components for all PCB’s
SimVim 0.9.60 configuration file (save as data.cfg file in X-Plane SimVim plugin directory)
This design is part of a complete system of Master Arduino PCB, MCP PCB, two EFIS PCB’s, revision 2.5 radio backplane PCB (using a universal radio panel PCB design for 6 radios), MIP PCB, FMC master with 2 FMC keyboard PCB’s, four Overhead PCB’s (for the IRS, Electrical and Pressurization panels and using the multiplexers and LED drivers of a second MIP PCB for the remaining Overhead functions) and a stepper driver PCB for all the gauges.
Development and testing of these will take time, but once successfully tested these will also be made available for free download in this blog.
