My “Dirty” isoUSBRS422 Boards Just Arrived

Good news for my isoUSBRS422 project. PCBs ordered from DirtyPCBs just arrived. They are not very “dirty”. There are some misalignments for silk screen and soldermaks layers. But these are not seems to be problematic. Later, I will shot some photos under microscope inspection for drills, pads soldermask and silkscreen layers.

Here is the order history:

  • 19.12.2014: I uploaded Gerber files to DirtyPCBs.
  • 21.12.2014: Gerbers sent to board house.
  • 24.12.2014: Boards were shipped.
  • 13.01.2015: Boards arrived in Turkey.

I chosed Hongkong Airmail for shipment which has an arriving time 1 to 8 weeks. But, I received my boards within third week (Turkey). I chosed protopack. Board quantity is between 0 and 20 with mean value 10 for protopack option! :) Fortunately, I got 12 boards. Also black soldermask looks very cool. :)

Now for my isoUSBRS422 project, I will find some missing components. Unfortunately, I have neither a reflow (toaster) oven nor stencil for board. All parts will be soldered by hand. Couple of ICs and some passives larger than 0603 size, not a big deal.
