It has been a long time since updates here, but a lot has happened, and the design has finally been brought up to fully functional.

Here are a few picture from assembly and rework:

The boards boot and all the components on the board have been checked out.

A few minor rework items are required for the v0.9 boards, and they are being tracked on in a GitHub issue that links to details about the problems found.
