  1. Use PostNL as registered post for Europe instead of Singapore Post

    to switch shipping provider and use PostNL. Other Chinese vendors offer it and it takes 10 working days to reach Europe at a comparative price.
    Singapore Post is way too slow, and DHL/FedEX make sense only for large orders

  3. Get rid of Fusion PCB service

    My experience with your fusion service has been appaling to say the least. I have ordered PCB fabrication and assembly from all over the world. Here in USA, where I am located, I get constant updates and can communicate with the PCB vendor. Just for your information, I have ordered from, Ireland, Romania , Canada to name a few. All of these places provide some communication on the process.

    In Seeds case, not only was I unable to communicate with the PCB fab, but they issues a "shipped" notice and refused to answer my repeated emails on why I could…

  4. E-Test: where to order?

    Hello, I am looking for a manufacturer of PCBs. I found somewhere that I can order 100% E-Test for 10$, but where do I select it?
    Cheers, Sebastian

  5. Sell the matching motor separately for the Tessel Servo Module

    I just ordered Tessel Servo Module 108990016
    It supports multiple motors but you only sell one of this specific motor with this item. You should also sell it individually. I had to go order it from another website so that I could have 2 of the same model motors.
    In fact, it would be a good upsell link like "Customers buying this also purchased..."

  6. Offer the 2-pin JST to JST SM cable from the EL Driver as a separate component

    The Grove EL Driver comes with two cables. One of these is 2-pin JST to 2-pin JST SM for making the connection from the board to the EL Wire. My suggestion is to offer that cable as a separate item in quantities similar to those offered for Grove adapter cables.

  7. Ethernet transceiver a bit noisy (but BBG is quiet in general!)

    Make the ethernet transceiver radiate less. I did radiated emissions testing on the BeagleBone Green and it does quite well. It passes Class B residential, which is difficult to do. However, I had to add a ferrite on the ethernet cable. Your ethernet chip must be noisy. Thanks!

  8. wio link windows 10 app

    So I don't have to use my phone to configure my Wio. It's kind of silly you need a phone for it.

  9. Bought a Grove starter kit for Arduino : poor support

    I was used to working with straight forward Arduino, just fine, Thought the plug-and-play of grove was a good idea.
    But the information to get it working is poor. The links on the paper do not exist anymore. No clear starting instructions what to install where exactly to get it going. Much information seems to be implicit.
    Information is just not complete and/or easy to understand. Pieces are missing. You-tube?

  10. 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?

  12. To make the gerber viewer available for past orders

    When viewing the order history it is possible to reorder past orders. It would help a lot if it was possible to view PCB's in these orders - it would at least increase the likely hood that one actually does reorder something.

  13. Output job file

    Create output job file for use in project to generate required files in format you need. File will specify BOM format, gerber options, etc.

  15. Your web pages are difficult to follow! Difficult to determine how to get special deals, and promotions.

    Make it easier to order pc boards, include discount promotions, and checking on orders purchased! You have a great company, make it easier for the USA to place orders with you. Free shipping on pcb orders would greatly increase your business!

  19. 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.

  20. Add Mesh Support to Smart 7688 Duo

    The ability to be both a Wifi station and a Wifi access point, simultaneously, would allow the Smart 7688 Duo to participate in powerful Mesh Networks. This can be accomplished virtually within a single radio (allowing for the same channel, or a more power-draining second radio). The 'hostapd' package in openwrt's Chaos Calmer supports this feature.
