Share. Vote. Discuss. See.

Share your ideas, tell us what you think of other people’s ideas and join the discussion.
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!

To get help or support, download, or more information, please visit our wiki site.

  1. more detail on order status

    Provide more online detail on order status. e.g. "Processing" is too generic. more detail would be appreciated, including estimated shipping date.

  3. Create more longer cables for grove.

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. wired/wireless Grove-controlled 220V outlets

    A simple, wired outlet is something I find myself making all the time (left side of photo), but I'd rather buy something smaller/safer/nicer than keep making them :)

    The [more expensive] wireless product can have the same functionality of a "normal" rf (or ir) controlled outlet, but the remote control would also have a grove socket. If it's necessary to have 2 buttons/pins in order to control such a device (like the a/b buttons in the photo), you can use both yellow and white lines (unorthodox for non-I2C grove modules, but I don't see any reason why not).

  10. Max485

    I wish to have in your OPL list the posibility to use the well common MAX485. When I develop boards with Modbus communication feature, I always need to use this components.
    Thanks

  14. 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…

  15. 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

  17. 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 :)

  19. Allow repeat order without the need to upload the gerber files again

    If you repeat an order it should not be necessary to upload the Gerber files again. Most other PCB manufacturers do this.

  20. 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.
