I have a small product for the performance automotive space I've been selling, and sales are starting to pick up faster than I can hand build them.
Nano clones can be had for as little as $2, and I'm wondering if it's feasible to continue to use them when I move to mass production. They serve as the skeleton for the product, as well as the brains.
Here's a picture of my current finished product:
It consists of a nano board, 1 capacitor, 2 resistors, and the rest of the wires are through hole (most of them).
I've been using JST connectors for the external connections. The whole thing is then shrunk in clear heat shrink for protection, and zip tied for strain relief.
My questions are:
Is there someplace that will do the assembly for me? Or part of it and I can finish it off?
Are there any legal implications to using an Arudino based board in a product (not sure if there's any licensing issues?)?
Can anyone suggest a company that will preform this type of service?
Thanks in advance! Who would've thought a hobby could pay off (literally!).
