I received new boards from PCBWay for the Always-On project. They are well made for a really low price.
As you can see in the previous image, the layer alignment is very good. Also, I do not have to worry about small fonts on the silk layer. I use 1mm labels and fine 0.2mm lines for this board.
The shown boards are sensor boards. The Always-On system uses a simple eight wire connector system to create modular sensor assemblies. I will show the used wires and TE Micro MaTch connector system in another post.
If you have any questions, missed any information, or simply want to provide feedback, feel free to comment below. 😄
