A few days ago I finished tests on my breadboard, being positive I decided to migrate my project to a pcb not only for functionality and practicality, but also for aesthetics, I have chosen the PCB manufacturer company Seeedstudio.com, we all know it as a manufacturer of hardware and IoT solutions , but they also have a PCB manufacturing service. I want to prove how my new ESP-LoRa / LoRaWAN prototype is. And making 10 prototypes is very simple and very economical for $5 USD.
Let's learn more about Seeedstudio
All at some time we have seen their wide variety of sensors, hardware, modules and their store, seeedstudio apart from being a manufacturer and distributor of IoT hardware, if you are a hardware manufacturer they would provide accompaniment as an ally in the integration of your project With IoT Platforms, its headquarters are located in Shenzhen, China and also has branches in the United States and Japan, they can easily distribute worldwide.
In this case we will not talk about your hardware platforms, we will use one of your services, our PCB Fabrication case for only $ 5 USD !!!! in Seeedstudio. also has other services that we will see later.
