PCB Fabrication – Things to Watch For #ManufacturingMonday
Sjaak from SMD Prutser gives some helpful hints on things to look out for – or just to keep in mind – before sending your PCB off for small-batch fabrication.
Most time of the PCB designing process goes into the design of the schematic and the routing of the PCB. Adding components to your library is usually a small task which don’t take much time. Nowhere in the process of designing the PCB this small but very important step is checked again. So make sure that the footprints and pinout is correct and double, tripple and quadriple check it!!
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.
