The very awesome Dorkbot PCB service, run by the amazing Laen, now has a new ordering system, OSH Park.
This is a community printed circuit board (PCB) order. We take designs from lots of people, put them all together on a panel and then order the panel from a fab.
Since we’re all splitting the panel setup cost, this lets us make circuit boards inexpensively.
This service grew out of the DorkbotPDX PCB Order run by by @laen and now comprises of a two-layer panel every other day, a four-layer panel every three weeks and a periodic two-layer medium run service for people needing more than 150 square inches of board.
This was the PCB service I used to prototype the Coobro Geo, and I have always had a great experience with other PCB orders. Hopefully this new system will help Laen keep up with the ever growing OSHW community!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
