Based on OSH Park’s estimates when I submitted my order, I didn’t expect the board to be back from fab until this coming Thursday. But while I was picking up lunch today, I got email that the panel my board is on is already back and that, within 48 hours, they would cut my board out and get it shipped.
Then, before I even finished eating my lunch, I got another email from them saying my board has already been shipped and gave me a tracking number that says it’ll be here on Monday!!! This is way faster than I expected!! Pretty impressive for as inexpensive as they are!
Just got email from OSH Park that today’s board did get filled and has been sent to fab. The email also mentions that my panel contains 98 different orders for a total of 438 boards! They say my boards should be back from fab on the 6th. I hope shipping is fast after that!
This morning I was able to get the easy button board all finished and ordered from OSH Park. I got a little lazy and didn’t try rounding the sides of the board. It looks like the rectangular board should work fine. I’ll find out soon whether or not that was a mistake… Three copies of this board for under $15!
Almost right away, I got an email saying that my board has been assigned to the panel for the 27th. As long as they get enough orders this weekend, my board should be manufactured Monday!
Oh–and also another potential mistake is that I didn’t actually test this circuit before ordering it. I did pretty much just copy the sample from the datasheet, so it should work, but I didn’t actually test it to make sure. Part of it is laziness since the chip comes in an SOIC-16 package only and I didn’t feel like mounting one to a breakout board to breadboard it. I hope this all works…
