This design is part of a complete system of Arduino Master PCB, MCP PCB, EFIS PCB, revision 2.0 radio backplane PCB (using the existing radio panel PCB design for 6 radios), MIP PCB and FMC PCB. Development and testing of these will take time, but once successfully tested  these will also be made available for free download in this blog.
