Trying a quick turn hand-assembly prototype service @dangerousproto

Trying a quick turn hand-assembly prototype service

Dangerous prototypes talks about using a PCB assembly shop for a rush project:

These Bus Pirate v5 prototypes were hand-assembled by a random PCBA shop on Taobao. Assembly took two days and cost 80RMB (~$12) for each board, we provided the PCBs and components. Normally we relish a prototype build because it’s a source of so many design improvements, but this was an emergency.

It’s super nifty to send away parts and get back assembled boards a few days later. If the orientation of every part is really obvious on the PCB silkscreen then the assembler can probably handle the build without any questions. The boards all work perfectly, and outsourcing the build really did keep the project moving at a critical moment.
