Shrinking the Butterfly
Many customers commented that they felt the Butterfly is a bit large. It has a lot of empty space and was one of our first designs, so it is due for an upgrade. I was still learning how to design circuit boards back then. Recently Marty came up with a new circuit design that has […]
