Two different versions of "iMX6 Rex development Baseboard....PrjBcb

I recently purchased the Advanced PCB layout course. I downloaded the files from your website but I also purchased the flash drive. I have found that there is a difference between versions of "iMX6 Rex development Baseboard V1I1.PrjPcb. It took me a while to figure out what was going on.

In your video lecture ALPC-L1...mp4, at about 57 minutes you show the original baseboard, which you use as an example. I have found this file, on my "E:\projects" folder "\Fedlevel Accademy\APLC-Lesson1-download\APLC Lesson1\Original Boards\iMX6 Rex Development Baseboard\V1I1". The file is called iMX6 Rex Development Baseboard.PrjPcb and it is dated 9/29/2014. Notice that there is a directory in the path called "Original boards". This board file is the SAME one that is used in the above mentioned video at 57 minutes. Also, it is the original board at "http://www.imx6rex.com/downloads/" (the open source site). Evidently, in your project downloads there is the directory with the original open source boards.

However, on the flash drive that I purchased, there is a directory "D:\Advanced PCB Layout Course\Lessons_files\Lesson1\Activity\Activity\L1 - 05 - Component Placement - Baseboard" where the PrjPcb file is dated 9/3/2014. This layout has may parts unplaced and the routing has not been done. This is not the file that is shown in the video.

Fortunately I was able to put two and two together and find the original file. Others might not be so fortunate.

Best Regards

Thank you very much Tom. Martin will have a look at this and correct the file.

Oki, we double checked this and "D:\Advanced PCB Layout Course\Lessons_files\Lesson1\Activity\Activity\L1 - 05 - Component Placement - Baseboard" is an Activity file (not the original file). This file is used for you to practice the lesson activity. If you would like to get the original file, the best is always download it from the http://www.imx6rex.com/ website.
