Late last year I spun off the Dirty____ source code into a free PCB fulfillment system (Filthy Hole). The system is modeled after Amazon.com – print packing lists and prepaid shipping/address/customs form on 10x15cm labels. It is way easier for the back office to pick and pack, and follows the same workflow as Dirty PCBs. […]
In this video Felix of LowPowerLab demonstrates a complete pick & place assembly of a MoteinoMEGA panel: The main things to take from this video are: effective CPH (components per hour) rating is affected in large by several factors like travel from pick position to placement position, travel speed, mechanical alignment in X and Y directions, […]

Our 20mΩ/sq sheet resistance and conventional soldering makes prototyping a breeze Solder Paste Dispenser Forget stencils. Pop your board in and dispense solder paste onto printed […]
Limpkin wrote this blog article about his tiny NFC Reader with a TRF7970A build, and he will be giving a few of them away: The main components are: – the USB-enabled ATMega32U4 – a connector for the NRF24L01 – a Lithium-Ion battery charger – an NFC transceiver – a proximity sensor The main idea of this platform […]
A PCB for Raspberry Pi WH1080 weather station by Andy Ayre of BritishIdeas: Previously I wrote about using a Raspberry Pi to receive 433MHz signals from a WH1080 weather station. This is the mess of wiring I came up with. This worked fine until it stopped. I probably didn’t crimp a wire properly and too many knocks […]
Richard from Zoetrope wrote this blog article about a PCB to make using the AS5048A angle sensor really easy. He used dirtyPCBs for the board, and Zoetrope will be giving a few of them away. Via the contact form.
@SUSpaceflight tweeted picture of his dirty boards from DirtyPCBs: GPS trackers for HABs with LoRa/RTTY modems. The larger board is a basestation with BT/USB/LCD
@ibuildrockets tweeted picture of his Blinky board from DirtyPCB: Ooh! Just had my order of PCBs arrive from @DirtyBoardsPCBs So red and purdy!
Rafal Powierski has released a new version of ZofzPCB Gerber viewer ver0.4, we wrote about it previously: What is new: 1. load ipc356 – that is a popular netlist or bare board flying probe test file, available as export from most of the CADs. 1.1 you can browse board by component, pins, nets. 1.2 identify object under […]
@RyanteckL tweeted picture of his DirtyPCB TurtlTeck: Final TurtlTeck PCBs arrived from DIrtyPCBs arrived today! Via Twitter.
AronFeher built a free Bus Pirate v3.8 PCB. The Bus Pirate is an open source hacker multi-tool that talks to electronic stuff. If you build a free PCB we’ll send you another one! Blog about it, post a picture on Flicker, whatever – we’ll send you a coupon code for the free PCB drawer. Get your […]
Niels Kjøller Lab writes: HandyStick is yet another small development board with an AtmegaX8 (Atmega88, Atmega168, Atmega328). The board is targeted towards use with vUSB, a software implemented USB stack. My first project is a DIY game pad. It is cheap to manufacture, fitting two on a cheap 5x5cm 2-layer pcb, and using easy-to-source parts. […]
Jan Henrik just got a stack of Dirty PCBs in the mail. He writes: So I just got my first delivery from DirtyPCB´s and it´s awesome! I ordered a Protopack ( 10 PCB´s ) in yellow with a size of 5 x 5 cm ( about 2 x 2 in ). And they just arrived! Yay! […]

Here’s Microentropie’s new project a VA meter with boards from DirtyPCBs: I tried the Dirty Board PCBs service I chose Express shipping because in my country standard shipping means waiting 1+ months due to ‘standard‘ customs operations. PCBs are currently travelling. Service until now has been very quick: Sunday 10 Aug 2014 9:58: Order received “Yum yum. […]
Doub has announced the release of the Aperture scripting, a set of Lua libraries to manipulate PCB data files. He writes: At the core of my Gerber Viewer (that you’ve made quite popular, thank you all), there’s always been a set of Lua libraries to load the Gerber and Excellon files, and I’ve privately […]
