Added SBU connector
It won't take up much space to bring out the SBU pins to an unpopulated footprint for a two-pin header, so why not? It's a development board, I should make it flexible! People should be able to have fun with ridiculous non-standard alternate modes they make up if they want to!

This is the circuit board for the PD Buddy Dev, a microcontroller development board for projects using USB Power Delivery.
The board is designed for 1 oz copper on all layers. 1.6 mm thickness should be fine.
The PCB is made with KiCad, so you'll need that if you want to make any changes. Several PCB fabricators accept KiCad PCB files directly now, but if you intend to order from one that does not, you'll need KiCad to plot the Gerbers.
KiCad 4 supports loading footprint libraries from Git repositories, but its
support for doing the same with symbol libraries is lacking. To address this,
I added the variable
_KI_LIB_GIT. Set this path in the main KiCad window
(Preferences > Configure Paths) to point to a local copy of the
kicad-library repository to ensure that you're using the latest schematic
