RaspberryPi boards in Hi-res

Raspberry Pi have posted some higher-resolution pictures of bare (unpopulated) boards from their first batch. The images are fascinating, not least because they show the scarily compact BGA connections which will link the main Broadcom processor to the board. There are hundreds of pads in a footprint the size of a postage stamp.

The post makes clear that these are not the boards as customers will see them; the board you get will be sold fully populated, with components soldered on. These images are there to whet our appetite and keep us informed about the march towards shipment.
