This is just the bare 4-layer PCB. The parts list and schematic and everything else you need for assembly are here.

I’m very hopeful that you can find a solve to the current issue. I started looking at the open OBC about 2 years ago and from what I could tell the website seemed outdated. So naturally I assumed that this project was dead long ago. Now though seeing a response to someone’s comment in 2019! I’m excited to see what the near future might possibly hold for the open OBC.

Is it possible to still order the fully assembled devboard? I'd really like to order one!

That's a good question and I've been meaning to do a blog post about it but I haven't found the time yet.Basically the situation is that the iso9141 driver used for the diagnostic bus communications isn't being sold anymore and the design needs to be updated to use a different driver. I think I've found a suitable driver but I haven't found the time to confirm it and update the design.The old driver is MC33660 and the new driver is L9637. Unfortunately the pinouts are different so the design needs a small update to the layout. It's terrible that such a minor thing can halt a design but this is the way things are I guess. Open hardware is meant to combat against this but we still aren't quite yet to a point where it's as easy for one to make a patch for hardware as conveniently as one can make a patch for software.I'm really sorry about this as I feel like I've fallen down on my duties here, but real life seems to conspire against all the coolest projects and I haven't found the magic bullet to combat that yet.
