I was just curious what other hobbyists were planning to do with P1 or P0 chips when they are available.
I’m thinking about making a custom home automation board that would be inexpensive enough to put a copy of it in each room of my house. The board would support motion sensing, RGB LED lighting control, an IR remote interface, a bunch of random sensors, and support for controlling external electronics through MOSFETS or relays.
I’m not trying to start another thread about my project, however. Instead, I was thinking it might be beneficial for the community to have a discussion about some of the challenges and particulars of designing a project around these tiny assemblies.
My first concern I have is in regards to the P1 and getting pins 48-64 connected. If we are supposed to avoid the area under the PCB antenna for any traces, what’s a suggestion for getting these pins connected? Obviously my first though is to run a ton of vias, but that doesn’t seem like the most elegant solution.
