    That's true! I think that gives it capabilities on par with the J-Link EDU/BASE, if I remember correctly what I read about it a few weeks ago (which I probably don't).

    Yeah, honestly they look great, but I was turned off by the fact that J-Flash software requires a J-Link PLUS at minimum, which is $600. I might pick up an EDU model to play with, but I'd be tempted to use it...

    I agree, and I plan to make some (of the things you mentioned) if this project works out well. My previous take on that was this: https://forum.pjrc.com/threads/52751 but the form-factor was never really satisfying for...

    Yeah, I had the same thinking. Using the Teensy is great for development, and even for small runs of things, but it's not ideal to integrate into a product, due to space, headers, mounting, etc. And the BGA fanout makes...

    Thanks! I hope it ends up being viable for production use with or without the PJRC bootloader! If the LPC-Link2 works out, then we're talking about a $20 programmer and a <$50 programming fixture.

    Thanks! I'm inclined to agree with you, except that I've really come around to the option of having the bootloader on-board. Obviously this variant won't actually be available for a while, until the PJRC bootloader is...

    Yes, this is very cool. I'm pretty sure at this point that the Teensy bootloader chip will be optional. I've just picked up an LPC-Link2 board (aka Embedded Artists EA-XPR-200, only costs $20) for future (hopefully...

    At the moment, it's just 100% solder mask (blank), no components. However, I might add (JTAG + power + USB) test points to facilitate programming with a pogo pin fixture.

    I'm thinking of something like this for the bootloader board. This is 12 x 6 mm. The pads are a bit larger, 0.5 mm drills with a 1.5 mm pitch. This one could be easily made with the cheapest PCB tolerances too.

    My local post office hardly ever scans packages, so the first scan will usually be from the sorting center in Springfield, MA a few days after they've been dropped off. It's annoying, but at this point I expect it.

    For what it's worth, the PCBs do (supposedly) go through electrical testing via automated flying probe machines at the board house, in order to weed out any defective ones before they're shipped.
