I’m working on a project using a nano 33 iot, and I do need to use most of its features (wifi, bluetooth, crypto chip, …). I’ve read that for most Arduino projects, it is only used for prototyping, and to move towards production, there is a fairly standard process that I am quite unfamiliar with (PCB board design, etc.). However, I’ve also read on several occasions that this nano 33 iot might be (somehow) suitable for production as it is - at least for starters, where the eventual production quantity might be quite low (think 100-200) anyways.
I was wondering if any of you have any thoughts on this? If custom PCB is still the way to go, how hard would it be to learn to design on my own (little hardware experience, worked mostly on the software side of things). If trying to learn from scratch proves to be too difficult, is the process somewhat like going to a professional and telling them I want a custom PCB design that has all (or at least most of) the functionalities of the nano 33 iot?
Thanks in advance!
