TIL: It's surprisingly hard to design a board for such a simple schematic that will be cheap to manufacture ๐Ÿ˜ซ


...but not impossible ๐Ÿ˜ Being able to order a 6-layer PCB with capped vias for $2 is crazy. It even appears to work with Thunderbolt and DisplayPort, which is surprising, as I barely knew what I was doing ๐Ÿ˜‚

@___warhier I needed something to block SBU signals from passing to the other side. Breaking SBU out is useful too, so did that as well. I didn't really need SuperSpeed pairs to be connected, but did it anyway as a learning exercise.

This in fact breaks TB and DP as both of them use SBU (USB 3 does not), so I connected it back with jumper wires to test it out, out of pure curiosity to find out whether I got it right enough ๐Ÿ˜œ
