DesignSpark PCB for Touchstone Contest

Well I finally finished up my PCB for my entry in the Touchstone Semiconductor TS1001 Design Contest... and not a moment too soon (the deadline is July 29th). I ordered a 5 day turn on the PCB and next day shipping from and should have just a couple days to build it up, test it, and get my video done for the contest.... always cutting it close.

This was my first PCB done with DesignSpark and I have to say I am pretty impressed. I easily created new library's for my custom components, edited the DRC rules, and kicked out some Gerber and drill files. I don't think DesignSpark has the full capabilities of EagleCad, but for just kicking out protoboards I am happy with DesignSpark.
