thinner gherkin express

Lower profile resonator and 4.7uF capacitor

Got new shorter parts for the Gherkin Express.

The tallest part is now the switches. The tiny 16MHz resonator fits on top the footprint for the larger one. Centered it makes good contact with the pads.

The rest of the components are the same. The resonator part is Murata CSTNE16M0VH3L000R0. The low profile 4.7uF capacitor is Samsung CL31A475KOCLNNC. The original parts are listed in the BOM.

Original parts on the left and lower profile parts on the right.
