PCBWay PCB prototype service review

Full disclosure: These PCB were provided by PCBWay. Obviously I will try to take to a look at the good as well as the bad. A few images to start us off: PCBWay $5 PCB prototyping service PCBWays’ prototyping service as low as $5/10pcs for max 100 x 100mm size, FR4 double side custom PCB. As with many of Chinese PCB manufacturer you need to input the parameters: A choice of nine solder mask colors, white or black silkscreen and an array of thicknesses (0.6mm, 0.8mm, 1.0mm, 1.2mm and 1.6mm; thicker and thinner PCBs are available but will increase the price). The default minimum track/ spacing is 6/6mil (0.1524mm), but better tolerances of up to 4/4 mil can be ordered at a premium. The default minimum hole size is 0.3mm… Continue reading

Interesting Emerging Agricultural Technologies

Technologies used in natural manufacturing and agricultural manufacturing. As more and more technology is available for the public, like through the exapta.com website, we should take a look at the future to know what to expect. There are many interesting emerging agricultural technologies that can be mentioned, with the following gathering a lot of popularity in the past year. Sensors Air & Soil Sensors – These are fundamental additions to automated farming, sensors that can enable real-time understanding of the current water body conditions, forest conditions or farm conditions. The technology is already used and financially viable. Equipment Telematics – This is useful for mechanical devices, like tractors, to warn the mechanics that failure might soon happen. Using intra-tractor communication can lead to a really rudimentary but effective farm swarm… Continue reading
