  1. Impedance Calculation Utility

    A calculation tool to let customers know the impedance of their PCB traces.

    Here is an example:
    http://www.hughescircuits.com/index.php/en/support/impedance-calculator

    The customer would only need to enter their PCB trace width, because all the other parameters can be determined automatically from the PCB specifications that the customer has selected.

  3. Control placement of manufacturing number

    AFAIU, all orders placed through the standard PCB service get a "manufacturing number" added on the silkscreen to facilitate production. Currently, seeed places these numbers (which I assume is a manual action?).

    It would be good if you could control the placement of this number, to better integrate it with the PCB design and make the result more pleasing to look at. For Seeed, this might remove a manual action from the process, saving time and cost.

    I could imagine that this placement is done by a specially sized box on the silkscreen, or better a completely separate layer ("comments"…

  4. LinkIt ONE updates

    LinkIt update requests:
    -Antennas for the LinkIt to be on the board (at least the GPS). The GPS is heavy.
    -Make it so that the SD card can be accessed at the same time the serial to computer is running.
    -Have an external power pins for powering the unit and charging the battery.
    -Move the microSD card away from the USB connection.

  7. Create more longer cables for grove.

    Create more longer cables for grove. For example 2 or 5 meters would be really useful. Thanks

  8. Ability to Cancel or Change an Order at any Stage in the Process

    Ability to cancel or change an order at any stage in the process.

    -Customer should receive no refund for the completed work
    -Customers should be able to receive a store credit for work that is not complete yet.
    -i.e. If customer pays for PCB + PCBA and cancels between PCB and PCBA, customer pays for PCB but not PCBA. Customer can make changes and then pay for a new order.

  9. MY SHOPPING CART - USD specified

    The $ ... which one of these : USD, CAD, AUD, NZD, SGD ? ? I guess it's USD, but even at 99.9% "it should be USD", it's still a guess... I suggest adding "USD" written somewhere in "MY SHOPPING CART" screen. Thanks.

  10. Provide a constantly updated list of parts that can be assembled into PCBs

    I would rather design a PCB knowing which parts you will support and incorporate those parts into my design instead of finding out the parts you support after I design a PCB and submit my Gerbers.

  13. Website Naviagtion

    I really like the products that you have on your site. I like it that Radio Shack also carries them. I found your site hard to navigate and find what i am looking for easily or even just to browse like an online store. On the other hand your competitors like SparkFun Pololu are really easy to navigate. I often find my self just browsing things on there store for hours. With this site i just don't feel like it give the feel to stay and "shop". I come in like i do when I go to radio shack retail…

  14. Adds some opto-isolators to the OPL

    There aren't currently any opto-isolators in the OPL? This seems like a big gap in it's functionality. Something like the 4N35 or the TLP291-4

  15. make larger flex circuits! PCB's go up to 30cm, flex circuits should too :)

    seeed flex circuits are very reasonably priced, however they don't go large enough to make a real wire harness replacement in any decent size project. Would love to see the flex circuits get the same size options as the rigid PCB's :)

  17. Add 4x20 Grove LCD

    The 2x16 Grove LCD is terrific, especially with the backlight color changes. Bring out a 4x20 version.

    By the way, what are the hidden I2C addresses on this device? They should be documented so multiple devices can be used.

  18. Better inventory management needed

    Most products that I would to order are out of stock! :( Water pump, relay, flow sensor, etc. There should be an option for back-order or notification to customer when the product is back in stock.
