We have a board, sort of...

We have a first run of fabricated test boards for Enzian. Here's what they look like (with pen for scale):

Unfortunately a couple of potential issues came to light with these boards - two of these will be assembled in next week or so to see if the issues are really serious.

If nothing else, this version will help us test all the power sequencing and control code we're writing for the Board Management Controller (a little embedded Zynq-based Linux system from Enclustra which plugs into the square-shaped hole lower right).

And there's a chance it might work as is...
