Manufacturing Monday 4-4-16 @adafruit #adafruit (video). Start your monday right with a new prototype+tester PCB panel. I like to tile up about 10 PCBs and testers and send them to Gold Phoenix for their “155 sq inch + 1 day rush” prototype service. They’ll do plated slots and route out each PCB outline (for more $) which I like, as well as do non-green soldermask. With the rush service I send the PCBs out monday before 4pm, i’ll usually get them on Friday morning. Altogether, I’ll receive 3 or more sets of this 5.3×8.4 panel (155 / 45 sq inches), all routed out, for about $400 on friday. It’s my one R&D splurge, but I think it’s worth it – works out to about $10 per PCB, $2.50 per sq inch and the quality is pretty good for protos all in a week! – Ladyada
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.
