Make "CR3" part of TC4 family?
Hi all,

as some of you know, I have made a TC4-like Arduino shield, so far codenamed "CR3". I began offering this to people on here earlier this year when the original TC4 became unavailable. The whole thing started very ad-hoc - there was people looking for boards, and I had a few extra ones left over.

Going forward, I want to make things more thought through and clearer for everyone. To this end, I am thinking it would make sense to officially make the board part of the TC4 "family". It's a bit like the TC4C - the board is essentially a TC4 + extras. Hence I was thinking of renaming it "TC4X" or "TC4+" or similar.

I am also planning to make the schematics and board layout files available on github under a CC-BY-NC-SA license, so that the project will stay available even if in the future I myself get tied up in other things (just want to sort out a proper name for the board before I do that).

What do you all think? I realise that the TC4 is a community project, and I want to make sure that everyone is happy for me to get involved in this way.

Wonderful initiative!
You are not alone, a TC4ESP will follow soon Grin
Ah, yes, I'm considering something like that in the long term too. ;)
I think it is a good idea to keep a general family name and add extensions to show the differences.

Thanks Matthias, for keeping it going, it is a worthy device.

Thank you for your kind words, Jack. :)

And great - I take it everyone is happy for me to make this a TC4 variant. :) I am hereby naming the board the "TC4+" then. More updates to follow.
I agree that a variation of the TC4 name is a good idea. TC4+ sounds good to me.
Good name choice. Creates anticipation for the extras this board has...
Great! Thank you, everyone, for the wonderful comments and encouragement.

The TC4+ is now available on Tindie!

And the source files are on Github:
