Eurocircuits delivered some perfect panels for the snow flake board. Each panel has five snow flake boards on it.
This was an impressive good job from from Eurocircuits. There are a quite number of challenges to produce panels in this outstanding quality:
- The width of the small decorative lines on the front is just 0.15mm. It is hard to get the HAL evenly over the whole surface with lines in all directions like this.
- White solder mask would show every imperfection. You really can not hide a thing with this colour, it benefits greatly from a clean-room.
- Milling this board outline is not simple either. You need experience, where to place the bridges to create a stable panel.
Most vias are tented, which is very nice. These are 0.25mm diameter holes, so it is at the upper limit where tenting works.
I am very happy with the result! The people at Eurociruits have clearly demonstrated their skills and commitment to quality.
Now it will be a real challenge to assemble the board without leaving any marks on the white surface. 🙂
