Bus Pirate v3.5 Free PCB Build

A few months ago I won a free PCB from Dangerous Prototypes. I chose the Bus Pirate v3.5 SOIC because it seems a very interesting tool. According to DP,

The Bus Pirate is an open source hacker multi-tool that talks to electronic stuff. It’s got a bunch of features an intrepid hacker might need to prototype their next project.

It uses a PIC24FJ64GA002 and some of the features listed in their webpage are:

Support for many serial protocols with line levels of 0 – 5.5 volts:

After a few months of lying in my bench, I finally decide to build it, so I bought the parts from Mouser Electronics and after a few weeks of waiting for the parts I finally assembled it. It was the first time I worked with 0603 components but it resulted to be pretty easy to solder. Also, I had some trouble soldering the FT232RL (I think I even burned it). Here are some pictures of the finished board.
