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. 😄

I added a fan and temperature controller to my printer enclosure with this quick 4h build. You may need to adjust things a little bit, but I am sure you can build one for yourself ...Read More
For various sensors, attached to Raspberry-Pi computers, I wrote small command-line tools to read the sensor values over the I2C connection. While you can do this with a Python script directly, I found using a ...Read More
After successfully embedding magnets, I started experimenting embedding whole PCB boards into prints. I am sure, this is no new idea, but I found it very interesting. From the outside, the printed object looks solid ...Read More
I made a simple 3d printed enclosure for Adafruit's PowerBoost 1000C and a 1200mAh or smaller LiPo battery. This post contains all the files you need for the print, a list of components, and assembly ...Read More
To solve the problem with light inference, I tested five different revisions of the turntable platform. For each revision, I recorded the sensor values and compared them to find the best solution. Visual Comparison Revision ...Read More
