hydrocontrol - the way forward
I'm planning to produce a small batch of 100 PCBs. It would be helpful to hear from you, what kind of ELC you need.
This will help me to optimize the features and the price of the PCB.

Also I'm currently contemplating to publish the whole design as open source, if enough people show interest.
(Because it's a lot of work to document everything, so other people can make sense of it :-)
