JLCPCB - PCB only $2 :)

I've recently seen a bunch of youtube videos relating to JLCPCB, 10boards for $2, that seems a lot cheaper than iTead PCB, So I thought I would give it a go with my next project. I've placed my first order with them for 50mm X 50mm 10 PCB's which came to about £1.41p here in the UK, wth shipping the total was £5.50p.
I'm now looking forward to receiving my new boards.. :) Will update when I have them..

I don't know why I didn't see this earlier bitfogav,

I've been using JLCPCB for a while now - they are fantastic quality, speedy service and so cheap!

It's a shame they don't have Matte colour options however. How did your boards go?

I don't remember if I saw it or not. It seems like I have to have seen it, since I check the forum for new posts every day. I should have recommended putting thermal relief around the pads that go to the plane around them. If you wave-solder it and never need to repair or rework it, it's no problem as it is; but if you do need to remove/replace a part that's soldered into one of these pads, it's hard to get enough heat to the pad with a soldering iron to melt the solder when the plane around it is sucking up all the heat like a big heat sink. The board does look nice though!

By the way - it looks like some sort of CAN-BUS interface circuit... interesting :)

So sorry for the late reply guys :oops: A lot of things going on at the end of this year, which meant not much time to visit the forum.

Thank you Garth for your recommendations, I will take that on board if I ever redesign or remake this board, has it happens the board actually turned out fine and works perfectly. I used through hole components for quick and cheap design. But I'm really happy with JLCPCB :)

Yes Brad it is a CAN-BUS interface board, solely to interface with Automotive networks, I was working on my own VB project and needed a quick/cheap way to interface with several vehicles. The project isn't finished yet but hopefully get back on it next year.

Well, this is my first post in a long time.

My electronic projects are essentially non-existent these days. I've wanted to spend more time with the kids and teach them things instead of just hiding away spending time on my own projects.

Good to see your project is working as you wanted it to and also nice to see that you are still working in VB. It's been a long time since I played with VB and I miss it :)
