The new driver board PCBs arrived and I began soldering components on one of them. Surface mount components are sooooo tiny, it is painfully slow going. When I found my soldering tweezers, which are spring loaded closed, I could hold and maneuver the parts.
Once it was apparently all soldered in place, I had to carefully check every circuit for connectivity and shorts, as well as appropriate resistance. This took the remainder of the day, since I want to be sure that this board is correct.
