We’re building a new product that intends to use a P1 as its brain. We’ve got a pretty workable prototype already in place and we’re now trying to get the budgeting right to go into crowdfunding soon. We were wondering if anyone could share tips and experiences with PCB Assembly for low to mid-volume quantities - we may not end needing a lot more than 2000 boards, but they will be laaarge PCBs with a lot of components each - including a lot of thru-holes.
We’ve mainly been doing hand assembly and we’ve used a local (Portugal) assembly partner in previous products. For PCB fabrication we’ve had experience with Myropcb (which also does Assembly), PCBway (which does offer but they don’t seem to be geared towards it) and a few manufacturers in Europe (mainly in Bulgaria). We’re dying to try HQPCB which was recommended in the proto2prod blog. Can anyone share experiences and recommendations on PCB Assembly companies in China?
