A little mouse(r) dropped off some goodies today...

Hopefully the BOM doesn't change too much between now and build time (yes, I did fix the missing SILs). I needed some other items to finish off a couple of monitor projects, so decided to go ahead and get ready for the H4.

Nice. The prep going on for the H4 is interesting to watch :)

I have a dinner engagement tonight, so you guys have time to finish ahead of me. :lol:

SMT work begins tomorrow. Or maybe late tonight. :shock:

Could someone confirm that this is the correct orientation of the oscillator?

That puts pin 2, which the datasheet says is ground, on the PCB ground, so I think it's the right thing to do, but want to be sure before I make it permanent. :)

I think the tiny dot is pin 1, and pin 1 and "8" are VCC... So think its right have you have it now.
