When it comes to having your own PCBs (printed circuit boards) produced, there are a huge number of manufacturing options to consider. One of the most important options is which surface finish is best for your board. We have put together a guide explaining the pros and cons of various surface finishes to help you make an informed decision next time you manufacture PCBs. You can find the full guide at the following link.
If you are thinking about getting started with electronics, but don’t know where to get started, our Experimenter’s Kit is a great way to learn the basics.
The kit includes a wide range of parts including a servo, sensors, lights, buttons, a sound module and more. Importantly, a Freetronics Eleven Arduino-compatible board is included to ensure that the kit contains everything you need to get started with electronics. All these great parts would be useless without some form of instructions which is why we have developed a comprehensive project and instruction booklet to get you started.
