Hi, I just made this layout for ExpressPCB and want to share it with you, in case you find it useful. Use it freely.

Update: Released it as with a Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication (CC0 1.0 Universal) (http://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/), because CC-BY-3.0 was too restrictive. Do what you want with the board!

Also grouped stuff and fixed the board a bit.

HI,

Excellent Job!!!  Save me a ton of time.

One small comment, I think that the text for pins 50, 51, 52 & 53 should be moved up one row.

The bottom row of the MEGA is for the ground connection.

Again, thanks for all you hard work.  I really enjoy working with ExpressPCB, and their boards are very good quality.  Finding files like your are real help.

Thanks & Happy New Yera

I know this was posted a while ago, but I highly recommend you submit your .pcb to the Community Library at expresspcb's website so that it is much easier to find for other users.

Anyone have an R3 version of this Layout. This is missing two pins left of AREF..

ExpressPCB is pretty easy to use - can you just add them in yourself? Two more holes at 0.1" spacing?

Hey guys,

Is anyone else having a problem opening this file?  Looks like the link is bad.

I could sure use this!

Thx
