Power/data splitter for PD Buddy Sink.
This PCB must be 0.6 mm thick so the USB Type-C card edge receptacles work. Copper thickness can be 1 or 2 oz, ENIG finish preferred.
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
