FYI - Seeed has changed up their PCB service process and as a promotion they are giving every order placed until Jan 20th a $10 service coupon back. So, rush out and place some orders this weekend!
Articulating arms and double sided SMD inquiry + Seeed PCB offer = I know Ian is up to something…and I probably want one.
Hmmm, place an order with 4 PCBs and get 4 gift cards for PCBs…
Time is up. Anyone order anything? I didn’t have anything ready to go and didn’t get what I’m currently working on done in time.
Yep. Ordered 4 boards, got for coupons…
One bug fix for my MegaMoto.
One bug fix for my (yet to be released) Module Current Measurement Module.
One new Gadgeteer module that can receive FM radio with RDS/RDBS.
One one Gadgeteer module with a Geiger tube. Will have to see if I can get the 500V supply going…
Nice! Sounds like some good stuff in the works.
lol - was just thinking about doing this… o well…
I would like to get a full set of modules for Automotive Entertainment System type of setup. Still need an I2C fader/balancer, an amplifier and a double din LCD module…
@ GMod(Errol) - nice
Please post a review on the board quality when you receive them.
Did they change manufactures? I have done boards with Seeed before and it was top quality…
Don’t think so. I think they only upgraded their ordering process (software).
They must have changed manufacturer or they REALLY streamlined things.
Sunday: Order placed.
Monday: Board files verified.
Tuesday: Manufacturing started.
Wednesday: Boards on their way back to Seeed.
This used to take a week or more…
Nice! Sounds like they’ve borrowed the process from DFRobot. Now if they could just get their add-on prices to match DFRobot then I’d be more interested. +$20 just to get black PCBs is ridiculous. If DFRobot would offer Seeeds quantity options we would have the perfect source. Hopefully, one of these vendors will give me everything I want eventually
@ ianlee74 - What quantity options does seeed do that DF doesnt?
Seeed : 10, 20, 30, 50, 100
DFRobot: 10, 50, 100, 200
DFRobot needs something in between 10 & 50. Just adding a 25 or 30 option would be sufficient. It seems that the last couple orders, I’ve really only wanted 20 but I end up ordering 50 because it’s not much more expensive than placing two orders of 10.
@ ianlee74 - 5cm x 5cm in green
Seeed 10 $9.90
Seeed 20 $24.90
Seeed 50 $44.90
DFRobot 10 $9.50
DFRobot 20 $19.00
DFRobot 50 $34.50
Maybe i am confused…
Yeah. I will not pay +$20 for black either. That was a real dissapointment. “We grant your request for black color, but it costs $20”. Not nice…
