Is there auto routing or does it have to be done manually.Routing is part science and part art.
My first 4 layer board, could take a while.
Auto routing for something this complex is pretty hard.Is there auto routing or does it have to be done manually.
I remember using Orcad back in the day on a 386 cpu.
I always started with required locations of the most important items first.
Followed by placing the items by the most connections that could be straight (if that makes sense to you) .i.e. data lines
So I agree. Part science and part art! Hey if it doesn't look good i can't work right?
Looks like it is coming along nicely. Please don't take me wrong ... but starting to look like the layout of the MegaCell charger?
My two test at 10 and 12mΩ. ±1Looking good. Very nice project.
Just a side note while working on my cells in parallel tester I did an resistance check on the style of cell holders I believe you are going to use and was shocked at the actual resistance. Almost 7mΩ. Maybe yours are different but if not I'm not sure how this could impact your C/D tester if at all.

At this stage the only thing in common with the megacell is that it has 16 cell capacity as wellLooks like it is coming along nicely. Please don't take me wrong ... but starting to look like the layout of the MegaCell charger?
Hey could I recommend you to look at 3D printing your own Cell holder based on Watts-on https://secondlifestorage.com/index...ringslot-18650-battery-holder.5849/post-48201
He has several versions. I personally like the lifting version.
Apparently you need help with coding _and_ naming.Need to give this device name to refer to while developing.
How about the SLS16M?
Balance, technically, yes.Could call it the CMB16 for Charge, Measure, Balance
Since it's the only unit I have seen that balances holder to holder. Wait, it has that feature..yes?
