Thanks, Jake! This is great news.

Is the Eagle board two or four layers?

I have put most of the components into my Arrow account and it comes to around 50 Euros in Europe. The PCB price depends heavily on the number of boards ordered. I have access to a pick and place machine, but I would still need an oven.

Is there anyone interested in a fully assembled module in Europe?
