We’re in progress of designing an open source accessory circuit boards for ION drive that are sold as finished product but instead they are DIY. So we will provide the design files (PCB & schematics) and maybe sell bare PCB’s too but assembly (soldering of components) should be done by user.
The poll is there to study which kind of PCB assembly skills people do have. Through hole components are easiest to assemble but is it necessary? Or do you prefer surface mount components (SMT) which would yields smaller PCB size? Vote and share your thoughts in comments below :)
