Universal XA Development board (2)
Last month we examined the theoretical aspects of the universal development board for the Philips XA series of microcontrollers. In this second and concluding part, we describe the construction of the board and programming considerations.Although the circuit is rather large and complex, the Elektor Electronics laboratories succeeded in fitting everything onto a single Eurocard (100 × 160 mm). The circuit board layout also gives proper consideration to the placement of he PC/104 connector and the associated fitting holes.

Gerber file

CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.

Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.
