Mesh Potato Production Update

We’re getting closer and closer to full production of the Mesh Potato. Below you see the 1.3 version of the Mesh Potato motherboard that integrates the FXS module onto the PCB and also includes an integrated antenna on the PCB as opposed to the external antenna for the first Mesh Potato prototypes. We chose to integrate the antenna both to save production costs but also to improve the weather-proofing of the Mesh Potato; one less joint exposed to the elements.

David Rowe has written a post describing some debugging work with the FXS module in the 1.3 design. His description of his debugging thought process is fascinating to read. If Sherlock Holmes existed today, he would probably be a hardware engineer.
