Title: Does my BOM make sense?
Post by: feklee on Feb 20, 2019, 11:04 am
For practice and for getting an idea about PCB assembly prices, I created Gerbers and a BOM. They are based on Sparkfun's Arduino Pro Mini board (https://github.com/sparkfun/Arduino_Boards). I removed components that I don't need. See attachment for all files.

(https://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=598901.0;attach=295659])

The Gerbers I exported using PCBWay_2 layer.cam (https://www.pcbway.com/img/images/activity/PCBWay_2_layer.rar). For the BOM I used the template that is linked from the article How to Build a BOM (Bill Of Materials) (https://www.pcbway.com/blog/PCB_Assembly/How_to_Build_a_BOM__Bill_Of_Materials_.html) on pcbway.com. Still I am left with various questions:



Background: Eventually, I want to create my own boards for the network nodes in my project SAN (https://github.com/feklee/san). They would be built around an ATMega-328PB. I understand that I also need to add an interface for burning the firmware of the MCU. Anyhow, for making my own board, I want to learn KiCAD first.
