I’m working on a custom carrier board for the Pixhawk v2.1 Cube and am interested in hearing from the community about others’ experiences with this process and tips about the implementation you may have.
I also have a couple of questions about the standard carrier as well. On the bottom is a secondary PCB that has a LTC4417 power rail prioritization IC on board.
- Is this circuit doing any more than prioritizing voltage rails for the power supply redundancy?
- Out of curiosity, what was the driving factor for choosing a castellated design for this circuit?
Input from @proficnc and the community as a whole is much appreciated. Thank you.
