PocketQube PQ60 Breakout and Prototyping board

It's been a while since I blogged about Satellites and stuff but wanted to do a post about this board I received as a gift from my antipodean buddy Stuart. Stuart is the man behind OzQube-1 Australia's first PocketQube satellite and very kindly sent me this board as a Xmas present!

So it's the first of hopefully more boards that Stuart plans to sell that adhere to the new PQ60 standard. It is a breakout from the Hirose FX8C-60 and also has a nice breadboard/proto/kludge area!

It's great that Stuart is getting boards out of the door and (we talk a lot on PM!) he is so dedicated to his project and is working really hard to get his PocketQube built. There's more detail about these boards HERE
