I am sure you have done your homework believe me. But I couldn't resist asking you whether you know that there are companies out there who will build your circuit boards at custom specs for very reasonable prices, even A PIECE.
You could ask yourself whether that €25.000 is called for or that you can bypass it, at least at first. You don't need to do everything yourself in the first series I would say?
