We’re excited to see that Michael Welling of QWERTY Embedded Design has completed manual assembly of his KiCad-designed PocketBone with the Octavo Systems OSD3358 SiP (System-in-Package):
Michael used vacuum pickup tool to manually place the components:
Here is a video of him placing the components:
Michael then used Reflowster to reflow the solder paste:
Here is a video of the reflow process:

Every week Hackaday.io features an AMA of sorts. This is the Hack Chat, a chatroom where we sit down with the best in the business to talk about manufacturing techniques, engineering, and how to build the best hardware around. Over the last few months, we’ve hosted a few hardware celebrities, from [Sprite_TM] talking about the ESP32,…

Jeremy Cook writes on the Tindie blog about this IR receiver board by Atomsofttech:
When you think of a “universal remote,” you generally picture an infrared (IR) emitter that can be setup to control your TV, AV receiver, and any other number of devices that work using IR signals. On the other hand, what’s to keep someone from doing the opposite, and having a universal receiver that can be programmed to accept codes from a remote that you just have lying around?

A low cost hardware dongle for capturing and analyzing Full Speed (12Mbps) traffic using ARM microcontroller
The board has been shared project by FPGA-Computer on OSH Park:
OpenMV has a couple of pins that you can use for connecting servos (for example, if you want to mount it on a pan-and-tilt base), but you can’t use those if you also want to use the WiFi shield or any other shield that uses up a lot of pins. Practically the only pins left to use are the I²C ones

I made a PCB with the Si7006 on it. This post is my bumblings encountered as I successfully got temperature and humidity readings from a Si7006 using the PCB I designed. In summary, the Si7006 is easy to work with. It is relatively easy to solder and very easy to access via I2C […]

We haven’t tapped yet into the full potential of the Raspberry Pi in terms of ADC. Some have shown that the first gen of Raspberry could go to 10Msps [..] My take is that the new Raspberry Pi’s can surely go above. And I want to try it, either with this old CA3306E or with more recent kick-ass ADCs.

J.Rodrigo created this adapter board make it easier to flash a Game Boy cartridge:
You only need to solder 3 or 4 wires and the adapter board to an old cartridge, PCB adapter boards are manufactured on OSH park to ensure the best quality of castellations.

In the open-source world, there are two main choices for PCB design: KiCad and gEDA. But if you’re tired of the boring Hershey fonts telling you which resistor is which, or if you need to comply with ISO 3098, there’s one clear choice: PCB-RND, the improved fork of gEDA’s PCB tool. Why? Because PCB-RND now…

Breakout board designed in KiCad to connect Pervasive Displays 2.15″ E-Paper (E2215CS062) to Teensy 3.2 or Teensy LC. Based Teensy E-Paper Shield by Jarek Lupinski in EAGLE.
My goal is to create a name badge I can wear at conferences and Maker Faires. This was first step to verify the KiCad schematic and KiCad footprints work. I will post more information as the badge project progresses.
