I have a Propeller based project that I want bring to market. I want to do a run of about 100 of these. They will be sold as a plug n' go type of product, not a kit. It is a USB based dongle device. My prototype is compete and very solid. I am using ExpressPCB as my layout software. I have used them for other projects and have been very happy with their software and service. Everything I have done so far is thru-hole type design.
Here are some of my question...
Is there any type of good literature that describes how assembly houses do production runs? (As far as component soldering and placement)
Are there any simple or basic techniques I should know about, to best do the layout?
Does anyone have any advice to offer about doing such a project?
Feel the need for speed between your PC's com port and Prop?
