The probability is pretty high, this version is trying to keep the same 
Ben's board outline and most components' layout; so we focus
the functionalities on usb host, little features-added and new die's 
layout shape firstly, not reliability-oriented this time. But from Yi's 
the ways proposed to eliminate failure must be added-in if it only 
change components; for additional ESD or EMI parts added on new design,
will always be the trade-off and design-in stuff between limited board 
space and parts placement (different classification of signals arranging).

This avt2 v1.0 is facing compression effect caused by new added-on parts 
without changing pcb layers and outline, it has met risks already. but 
it's worth
to have this prototype first. so we still need s/w can help us to find 
out that if any defects behind.

ha, me too; especially on linux software. :-)

I don't know either.
Hope any comments to be proposed.
