Experience with PCB's from Sparkfun
May 16, 2009
The new phone books are here, the new phone books are here!! ...PCB's actually.
Well, I just got my custom pcb's back from the one-off pcb service from Sparkfun. I gotta say, I am very happy. Granted, it took 3 1/2 weeks to get them but then again, I did get a total of 7 custom boards (with all the bells and whistles) for only 50 bucks including the "set-up" fee and shipping. I used Diptrace to design the boards and the software spit-out all the needed files. Super-simple, cheap, good boards and I'm happy, period.
In this order:
One board to hold (2) picaxe 40x2's with servo connections for all in's and out's except for the output to the motor controller which is screw terminals.
Five boards to hold the "Radio Shack" IR Sensor and related components
One board housing (8) small pushbuttons and resistors to create a multi-voltage output (to be read by an ADC Channel)
