Enterprise Millicluster Board Layout

I came up with the board layout shown to indicate how we might arrange the millicomputer modules, interface bridge, USB network and microSD card holders on a conveniently sized board. Its just under half the size of a typical enterprise server motherboard. The total size is about 5.5” Wide x 12” Deep x 0.4” High. The Ethernet network bridge increases the idle power consumption to no more than 3 Watts, and fully active power consumption is unlikely to exceed 20 Watts, so I don't think heat sinks will be needed.
