NRF52 Bluetooth Low Energy Module PCB Using Laser Printer / Silver Paste Method

Thanks to Rich for writing in with a follow up to his laser printed PCB method that we posted about back in December! He writes:

Hi there!

A few months ago you shared my silver-paste / laser printed PCB method – https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/12/18/no-etch-circuit-boards-on-your-laser-printer/ – thanks!

I recently did my first “real” project using this approach – a complete BLE module utilizing Nordic’s NRF52 chip:

I think the NRF52’s 0.4mm QFN40 package is pushing the edge of what’s possible with this method. I had some challenges getting things working – but I think this shows the method is could be useful for prototyping projects.

Thanks again,

-Rich Olson

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.
