Drag and drop PCB design & build for compute module

Thu Jul 07, 2016 11:00 am

Noticed this today (but been around since february apparently),
and had a quick play - very easy to use.

https://www.gumstix.com/blog/build-your ... -in-a-day/

It's a web based drag and drop interface to add and layout components.


There's already a few sample designs to work with:


Pricing seems to be $1999 design fee then around $25 per unit (no minimum)

Compares well to element14's custom pi service with minmum order or 5000 units

Great link Mike, thanks! Any idea whether FCC/CE certification criteria are included in the designs to maximize probability of passing certification the first time, or is this for engineering prototypes that are then expected to be tweaked by an RF production experienced engineer if volume production is pursued? I assume the Element 14 service includes that, since the minimum order is 5,000 units.

Thanks for sharing Mike! We're happy you found Geppetto.

Hello Jim Manley, yes, we can definitely help you with FCC/CE certification and provide any document you may need to pass.
