What is this on the PCB??

by solongsidekick on Mon Jan 20, 2014 7:42 pm

Hey all,

I am trying to get an understanding of how Eagle works and am pretty much opening any open source design files I can and taking a look at how they are designed and started looking at the v1.2 TV-B-Gone board. There is a design that looks like flowers in between where it says "TV-B-Gone Kit" and "v1.2" that I don't see on my actual kit that I put together. I can't figure out what it is, if it were a design thing it would show on the actual board wouldn't it?

Thanks in advance!

I don't know what that is. Must be something that was removed when the board files went to the fab.

That is the company logo for Cornfield Electronics, which belongs to Mitch Altman....the inventor of the TV-B-Gone.

Early versions of the board had that printed on it.
Please forgive my hyperanthropomorphization.
Every answer reveals new questions.
And, yes... there's always a better way to 'do that'.
