@Ettus, did you experience similar customer reports, or why did you finally go to the larger connector? Anyway, a wise decision :) Wish it had been made earlier.

There were a few reports of connectors "leaving the building" under not-unusual stress.  So, it was decided to move to the larger connector.

I had *exactly* the same issue with a HamItUp a couple of years back--and again, within hours of my receiving it, knocked the board with
  a stiff USB cable attached, which neatly sheared-off the uUSB connector.  NooElec updated to a standard "B" connector after that.

My sense is that uUSB connectors (and to a lesser degree, mini-USB) really shine in situations like smart phones, where the connector is surrounded
  by enclosure, and is very unlikely to experience any shear forces.  For naked boards, perhaps not such a good idea.  One lives and learns.


Ralph.

I also more like the white color than the new green version. But the green one has four corner holes, it's convenient to make an encloser for it. :) -Lin

I think this was addressed on this list a few days ago.



The new production boards happen to be green, rather than a white full-board silkscreen.



There are minor layout changes, driven mostly by the change to the USB connector to a

  large-size 'B' connector, away from the "micro" B connector on the white units.



Also, on B210, there is a GPIO connector, and the power LED is now dual colour to indicate USB-vs-external power.



The new front/rear panel layouts are available here:

Hi



I went to the Ettus website today and noticed that the B200 and B210 are now green. They were originally white.



Is there any reason for the change, and is that the only change?



Thanks.
