Neuron production has begun. This is my first foray into reflow work, so there has been a bit of a learning curve. Here, I made two sticks of four Neurons each and uploaded a test program to light the LEDs up white:

Next, I tried doing eight at a time:

Many observations:

Up next: firmware!

What are your per-unit BOM costs?

$3.49 each without external accessories (axons, axon terminals, exciters, switches, etc). Figure ~$4.50/ea for a decent accessory load-out based on a ~125pc production run. Overall touch time per Neuron is probably 10 minutes, but my time is free.
