In previous post Creating Cheap PCBs In India for Makers: Designing and ordering, Part 1, we have discussed about how to design PCB and finally
how to order the pcbs from LionCircuits.
I have ordered my PCBs on
January 30 2017 and my PCBs were shipped on
Feb 7 2017 and it reached
to me on
Feb 10 2017. So it took total
11 days which is quite FAST if you compare it with other
PCBs manufacturers. Also it was a nice gesture from LionsCircuit to give me
1000/- INR bonus. :)
I don’t have solder paste and hot air gun so I was totally relying on my solder iron and my skill to solder
this. Two boards turn out to be okay but I screwed one board while soldering because I put too much
force on pulling a stucked solder wire on solder pad. :/ Although a fine jumper wire could be used
to save this :). Probably I will do it later when I actually need to.
Also I need to order solder paste and good quality hot air gun now as I would be doing lot of
Two out of three turns out okay. ☺Works well. I screwed one pcb by putting force on pulling a stuck solder wire on solder pad. 😠 pic.twitter.com/VTp2ztD6rv— FAITH + 1 (@amitesh_singh) February 11, 2017
Look at those perfect solder joints. Pure gold. pic.twitter.com/SVwiZAcNLj— FAITH + 1 (@amitesh_singh) February 11, 2017
The default setting in attiny13a is to use 9.6 MHz internal oscillator.
I did upload a blinking LED sketch which worked well. Check the video below.
Added a switch and smd components. pic.twitter.com/oVsOwm6FAh— FAITH + 1 (@amitesh_singh) February 16, 2017
Overall I am pretty happy with the quality of PCBs and the turn out time from ordering PCB to actually get delivered to my door steps. I shall definetly order my PCBs from LionCircuits in future.
