New Feather Product Idea

by timgtech on Tue Jan 11, 2022 4:46 pm

Note sure if this is the right place...

I wanted to suggest a product. A feather doubler but one that is in-line as opposed to them being side-by-side. I have had several projects where that would have been ideal. I tried to take the CAD files in eagle and make one but my skills there are a bit laughable.

Thanks for considering my idea. You all ROCK!

The circuit board does not exist physically but only as a ready-to-manufacture layout. Since the associated hobby project is still in the planning phase.

Have you ever had a circuit board made yourself and do you know how to do it?

The files for this are in my github profile (username is different there than here), but the design/layout is based on Adafruit (open source files) and I don't know if I can make it publicly accessible that easily.

Currently, the repositories are still on private... maybe an admin from Adafruit can give the go.

Adafruit is then welcome to use it and market it for itself :D.

Kind regards

@AliBabaz

Thank you sir! I have made a few small circuit boards many years ago from the Eagle program and uploaded to file to a Fab house. So I do have some familiarity with that. If you can make then accessible or if Adafruit wants to make them. I am happy to Compensate you $$ some way or buy them from Adafruit if they make them.

I set the repositories on public and hope it gives no license problems with Adafruit.

No refund $ needed!

@AliBabaz

I sent the files to OSHPark to fab up the baoards and just got them back. This is perfect and exactly what I needed.

I wish I could repay you. I can now move forward with my project. Thank you so much!
