This thread has become an excellent resource, so thank you to all who have contributed.

Can anyone report on their experience using the assembly services of any of the above (or any service not already mentioned, for that matter)?
WiFi shields/Yun too expensive? Embeddedcoolness.com is now selling the RFXduino nRF24L01+ <-> TCP/IP Linux gateway: Simpler, more affordable, and even more powerful wireless Internet connectivity for *all* your Arduino projects! (nRF24L01+ shield and dev board kits available too.)


The companies that we used were quite good.  But you have to make sure you specify EVERYTHING exactly as you want it.  Also unless you are dealing with large quantities you will need to supply your own parts.  You should however do this for any specialty high value parts.  (We post the sensors we use out as they are hellish expensive) If you do this you know they are yours.

I think you can buy it from Shenzhen China,because there are lots of PCB companies and the price is reasonable,so you can have try it. I've been getting most of my recent boards from these site :http://www.goldphoenixpcb.com ,http://www.wonderfulpcb.com


I second OSH Park for PCB fabrication. For the most part, I am still in the "cooked to order" business phase. I get stencils from OSH Stencils and manually pick-and-place and use a homebrew reflow oven (not too ironic that I sell toaster oven reflow conversion kits).

I have toyed with the idea of getting a run of product from Small Batch Assembly. They don't fab boards, but it appears that the interface between OSH Park's medium run service and their assembly service would work out nicely (you'd be having them populate ten panels). Also, they have an inventory of common parts in stock that you don't need to supply (you get something akin to DigiKey's T&R price per unit). Everything else you either send them as cut tape or a reel (they return any excess).

The best option i think would be choosing a company with both PCB and PCB assembly capabilities.
And for producing PCBs it is simple that you pass on your Gerber files, when you want additionally PCB assembly services, simply pass on your BOM list, with all the assembly components inside.
The start up quantity various from company to company, so you just have to discuss with them. And of course everybody is looking for a long term partnership.

These days, there are lots of options for getting PCB board made up, but what if you want to skip the DIY soldering and get a bunch of boards actually assembled? I appreciate this is going to require minimum quantity runs to make it even remotely economical, but what are those minimum quantities, and what are the ins-and-outs of the process?

I had Macrofab assemble my Neutrino:


They're in Texas, and specialize in short runs. Very affordable. Those prototypes were only $35 ea.  That's including the cost of the components and shipping.  Three week turn time, but they should get faster once they start getting enough orders that they can stop using OSHSpark.




We are new to the forums but we offer low volume assembly services at very reasonable prices. We are offering free assembly for a limited number of initial customers.

Our prices start @ $99 for up to 10 individual boards. We can procure stencils and parts and can also offer some passives (currently limited to resistors and capacitors ) for free so you will not need to procure these or send them in with your kit.

If you have any questions at all please contact us!!!

Thank you and have a great day,
