Responding to a few comments:
- The DC-DC converter has the same pinout as a 7805. It would be possible
to substitute the linear regulator (as long as you handle the power
dissipation of course).
- I will likely switch to I2C for the LCD on the next revision.
- Adding an input for an external 10MHz reference signal would not be a
problem. I would also add a jumper for selecting the clock, and a disable
jumper for the TCXO.
The 16F1619 has an on-board 4x PLL, but the maximum operating frequency of
the chip is 32MHz... An 8MHz external reference would be ideal, but of
course not very common.
