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.

In the first part of this series, we explored the general concept of event-based firmware. To read that article, follow this link. The concepts we discussed were directly tailored to one specific firmware. Now, let’s ...Read More
Templates are a powerful feature of the C++ language, but their syntax can be complex. Here I will continue with the second part of the article. Although the examples I provide are for the Arduino ...Read More
We have some great news about my Snowflake Decoration: Starting today, you can buy an assembled version of the project from Pimoroni that can be shipped worldwide. Pimoroni did an excellent job on this project ...Read More
Here I briefly document a very realistic candlelight effect you can build with very few components. It works best if the device is placed in a jar or behind a screen, where the Neopixel ring ...Read More
In this brief article, I will discuss the requirements to flash a custom firmware to your Pimoroni snowflake decoration. I assume you have some programming knowledge and have previously worked with an Arduino Uno or ...Read More
If you read the previous articles about event-based firmware, modularisation and templates, you may wonder how to combine all these concepts in your firmware. I created a working firmware example, based on an event loop ...Read More
