Our first batch of circuit boards arrived and they are beautiful!

And with the boxes of fresh components, it was like [insert your favorite holiday here]!

Pretty quickly Cameron noticed the problem with the boards. We accidentally used a 32-VQFN footprint for the AVR instead of TQFP-32A. The good news is that Cameron had a few spare Atmega328s in the workshop with the correct footprint. Disaster averted and now on to find the next bugs before moving into full-scale production.

Where did your get your PCBs printed and what process did you use to mount the SMTs?

We did a rush order from Gold Phoenix ( and have been using a hot plate for the SMTs.
