Recently, I got some feedback from university students or freelancer on how to set up the board and how to run the demo which I posted before. After you did the proof of concept and showed it to your boss/professor through the development board, do you consider how to make it on your own PCBA and product??
Generally, you may buy some shields from online shop such as
- Adafruit (https://www.adafruit.com/)
- Digikey (https://www.digikey.hk/)
- SeeedStudio (https://www.seeedstudio.com/)
Or you can use the modules. Here are some module manufacturers.
- Minew (https://www.minew.com/bluetooth-module)
- hongjia (http://tshjdz.com/#/welcome/en)
- youjia holyIOT (http://www.hyyunjia.com/eindex.asp)
Also, I got the message from PCBWay on my blog that they would like to introduce their service and their community.
In my past experience, if I would like to build the prototype, I can only use the solderless breadboard as below.
Six reasons to create your own PCBA through PCBWay
With the rapid development of the electronics industry recently, more and more online PCB prototype companies arise, which directly leads to the soaring competitiveness of the electronics industry and in the meanwhile, many enterprises even reduce their prices without hesitation in order to attract more customers, which makes the price of PCB becoming lower and lower. However, there is no doubt that it is the wonderful news for consumers. Therefore, customers will consider which company can offer the most cost-effective service instead of worrying about the price when they are choosing the most suitable partner?
1. PCB’s price is as low as $5/10 pcs
The goal of PCBWay is “Better, Faster, Cheaper“. In order to give support to many electronic enthusiasts who want to build projects but don’t have enough money, PCBWay is the first manufacturer who gives them at a low price and announces that the PCB prototype’s price will drop to $5/10pcs. Actually, the PCB prototype’s price of PCBWay will sometimes even be $ 0 when the new registrants pay for their orders by using the special coupon which PCBWay designs for customers. What’s more, the prices of stencils and even different kinds of solder masks both only need $10. Last but not at least, the delivery time of PCBWay is only 2-3 days which is the most efficient all over the electronic industry.
2) High-quality Raw Material of PCBWay
Unlike other PCB manufacturers who use low-quality conductive adhesive materials, PCBWay always insists on quality first, so they usually purchase better quality raw materials to make PCBs in order to give the best PCBs to customers.
For detailed reference to “Refuse conductive adhesive technology in PCB manufacture”
As we all know, different raw materials can cause a huge gap in quality, which might influence the functions of PCBs and even lead to more serious consequences. Therefore, some professional quality inspection agencies will regularly spot check the PCB quality(such as the thickness of copper, the anomaly detection of components, the signal reaction, and so on) produced by various manufacturers and from the current results, the PCB quality produced by PCBWay is better than that of other manufacturers.
3) Keep track of PCB production progress in PCBWay background system
Are you curious about your PCB production statue after place order? Nowadays, most companies don’t support such services which customers can keep track of their production process but PCBWay has already realized what is in the PCBWay background system, customers can see the progress of the PCB production and also track the express number after shipment.
4) Share your PCB designs in PCBWay community
PCBWay always supports the development of open-source community and ever sponsored the 2017 Open Source Hardware Summit. In order to help electronic enthusiasts communicate with each other better, PCBWay provides a special platform—“PCBWay community” in which the electronic enthusiasts can share their PCB designs and vote the PCB designs that they prefer most, and if there is someone who likes your design and even places an order, you can get 10% commission.
5) Apply for PCBWay sponsorship for your Non-profit Project
Considering a large proportion of electronics enthusiasts are students or beginners, PCBWay has created the dedicated channels for sponsorship to encourage these electronics enthusiasts to create their own projects. PCBWay has sponsored more than 1000 projects so far which include robots, rockets, racing cars and so on, and in the meanwhile PCBWay also sponsored Makerfaire, SHA2017 and other activities.
6) Perfect After-sales Service of PCBWay
The perfect After-sales service is the most prominent feature service of PCBWay. I am not sure whether you have ever dealt with after-sales issues with other companies that might make you frustrate because most of these companies always shirk responsibility and do nothing when they finish their sales assignments.
While PCBWay will never do that and you will find an after-sales service channel on PCBWay background system which means that if you are not satisfied with the PCB quality or service, you can file a complaint directly in the background system and the After-sales team will respond you within 24 hours. After confirming with the problem, they will refund or reproduce for you if it is their responsibility. So wonderful their After-sales service is that they are really a responsible company just like Amazon in the PCB field.
