Cheer up! I'll use it on the round design. :-) We'll pull out all stops - whatever's best for the job will go on the board.

I've found there are a bunch of good options for stuff in general that is only available as surface mount. As long as the pin spacing is reasonably large - about 0.05" or so and Ball grid arrays are avoided - it's all good. Heck, even parts with bottom heat sinks work out ok.

I'll use a lot more space between parts than the resolver driver board required. That makes part placement and soldering with a hot air gun easy.

BTW, in that last e-mail - was that the latest hardware rev?

Take care,
