Title: Free PCBs
Post by: ian on August 02, 2009, 10:22:58 am
I was sent 50+ PCBs for this project. I plan to hand them out at conventions, but I thought I'd open requests to the internet too.

I mailed out a bunch of these today, and I'm still waiting for a few people to send me their address.

Most of them are going to the US, which is a pretty expensive destination from the EU. The actual cost per unit is something like $1.56 [€0.95 (stamp) + €0.11 (envelope)= €1.06 = $1.50USD, plus a Paypal fee (3-4%)].

If you're requesting from the US or another country with widespread PayPal availability, please send $2.00 to cover the postage. I'll send instructions when I ask for your mailing address, I'm ian at this domain. If you're in the EU, especially Benelux, then postage is cheaper and I can still send them for free. Don't worry about it if Paypal isn't available in your country.

If you haven't gotten my request for an address, please check your spam folder or post again in this thread.

@pkt - I'm giving away free PCBs (http://http://dangerousprototypes.com/category/free-prototype-pcb-sunday/) from my blog every Sunday. I just gave away three of these on the Free PCB Sunday post this week, I'll be giving away some other PCBs over the next two weeks, but you can probably get one with free shipping on the Sunday after that.

thankyou
I received a small brown envelope in the mail today,
the envelope was ripped and the board fell out when I picked it up.
the board looks undamaged.

I will be documenting the build as it progresses

I've all ready got the Microchip PIC 18F2550 as a free sample from http://sample.microchip.com (http://http://sample.microchip.com)
and a velleman pic programmer

I'm set to go

I just got my board today, Thanks Ian!

It was attached to the inside of a regular envelope with masking tape; there were definite impressions in the envelope where it was (automated letter sorting, etc), but the envelope held up well :)

The tape seems to really help, before a lot of boards were tearing envelopes and falling out. I think the electronic sorting machine was squeezing them straight out of the letters. Thanks for the update.

Mine arrived this weekend, many thanks for that, Ian!

I'm only expecting the delivery of some 20MHz quartz crystals to start building this project.

On a side note, does anybody have the C source files for the firmware, in the DIY archive I can only find the compiled HEX file?

Many thanks,
Zdravko
