These look pretty interesting! What’s up with these 3-cent microcontrollers? (A review of the Padauk PMS150C and friends).
The title says it all: Everything You Need to Know about Designing a PCB Layout.
Via HN today: Renesas Enters FPGA Market with the First Ultra-Low-Power, Low-Cost Family Addressing Low-Density, High-Volume Applications. It says they will sell for around 50c, so that’s awesome and definitely something I need to look into in the future.
Today I learned about SMD soldering by hot air.
So in my travels recently I discovered JLCPCB. They can make custom circuit boards and their prices seem very affordable. I don’t know what other companies might be out there offering similar services but I don’t think I’ll need to look further…
Update: 2021-09-24 jj5 – also check out the service from Seeed Studio. Thanks to my mate Raz for the suggestion.
So I got myself a 1set AM / FM stereo AM radio kit / DIY CF210SP electronic production suite. Here’s me preparing to put it together…
And here’s me failing with the surface mount integrated circuit and ruining the circuit board:
