Updated 1/12/20. Changes are in bold.
The v4 kit is no longer available for purchase.
I’m changing direction a bit, and we will see how it turns out. I’m sharing the gerber file for the newest revision of v4. This will let you guys make your own kits if you want a real challenge.The schematics for this PCB revision (PCB 1.4) will not be shared because they just aren’t in a sharable condition. I’m re-creating the schematics from the ground up for v5, and they are shared below. As of 1/12/20 I am still working on the first prototype. If possible, please help support my work by using some of the affiliate links below when you purchase the components. If you make this board for resale, please at least let people know where the original design came from.
PCB is 0.8mm thick
PCB for PSPi v4.1.4
This is just the PCB. The schematics won’t be made available for v4.1.4. The schematics for the next PSPi version are viewable as the design is completed, and you can find that next version (still a work in progress) here.

The component labeling is not typical. Instead of giving each component a different name (R1, R2, etc), identical components all have the same name. For example, if a component is labeled R3, it will always be 10K. This made it easier for me and my wife to assemble. I added links for most of the components. Please let me know if a link stops working.
