I converted gen020.pho with gerbview to a KiCad BRD file:
I removed the panelization, so it's now just the plain board.
(Panelization depends on the production process, so we may
need a structure that's different from what Openmoko used.)
There are a few open issues:
- first of all, gerbview turned the arcs into straight lines.
That's particularly visible in the corner where the GPS is
located, where quite a bit of board surface is missing.
So this needs manual fixing, maybe even of gerbview.
- what orientation shall we use ? I think bottom-up may be
more convenient than top-down since most of the components
are at the bottom of the PCB.
Also, landscape may be a little better than portrait because
we can then use a deeper zoom when looking at the whole board.
