Quirks of PCB manufacturing at ITead

Posted on Friday, March 25th, 2011 in PCBs by Ian

Itead posts a reaction to EEVblog’s list of PCB manufacturing quirks:

Now we remake the boards again with the same gerber file. Today the boards return, we can not wait to start checking the board, and the result make us very disappointed – the factory seems change the gerber again and the boards still not connect with that cooper where Dave use to building the GND connection.

Read the whole thing for more great PCB manufacturing tips, also useful for Seeed’s Fusion PCB service.

Thanks Sjaak! Via the comments.

    I have not had any problems with ITead PCBs. They have always been good quality. Sometimes my design quality was not so good. ;-) I have gotten into the habit of using the DRC and checking the Gerbers before I send it to them.
