Idea Guidelines:
1 – Idea needs to be something we can do. This means, although we appreciate general feedback (for example, “this is good!” or “this hurts!”), here we are looking for ideas we can work on.
2 – Specific. The more details you can provide, the better. Heck—you can attach files to ideas or a reference link to show us what you want!

        • More information needed on out-of-stock items

          More details need to be given for out-of-stock items. For example, is it being replaced? Will it be available again? When is the ETA?

          For example, I have a client who needs 12 new BeagleBone Greens. They've been marked as out-of-stock for a long time now. Is this permanent? Or temporary? What do I tell my client?

                      • 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"…

                          -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.

                                    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.

                                    • Optoisolator

                                      I wish that in the OPL parts, you can find a place also for an optoisolator like the PC817. This is a good component when we need to make a strong separation between different supplies. Especially for microcontroller!

                                        • 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.
