 max i thought i'd point out that i spotted an 8-shaped power socket
on the drawing - is that mains?  if so unless there's a really good
reason i'd recommend having a separate power adapter, there's a very
good power IC that does up to 4A anywhere between 7 and 21V DC input.
power adapters are a pain, and also you have to take extra-special
care on the design of the PCB as well as consider safety issues.

 also if you're doing this as an open hardware project i'm happy to do
the PCB design if you like.  it'd be with PADS because that's what i
can use, and it's very very good, plus i have a large library of parts
