Hi all. I wanted to thank you all so much for the support on this campaign. You’ve all provided something, either in terms of monetary support, demonstrating interest in what we offer, or feedback for product improvements. Having said that, the campaign is drawing to a close and it’s not quite funded yet. It’s so close!
If you’ve been delaying until the very end, this is it. Get your last minute pledges in and maybe that will be enough to fund this project to production.
I also wanted to provide something back to all our supporters so I made a video that shows how I do surface mount prototype assembly using a solder stencil and solder paste. If you’re looking at making the switch from through hole soldering to surface mount, this video may help you out. It could also help you in terms of designing a board that CircuitBrains could be soldered to (hint hint).
