  1. One twisted pair 100Mbit Ethernet

    Hello guys. I would like to recomend to focus on Automotive ethernet, standard 100baseT1 (BroadR-Reach). Example of PHY nxp TJA1100,
    It can be used in place original PHY of regular 100baseT Ethernet PHY. It is much more robust against EMI than PC version. It is already used in BMW. I can imagine nice, small kit that has on one side MII to interface MCU and on another IEEE802.3bw (3rd name for this ETH standard)

          • kicad gerber generation

            the process for handling BOMs should be integrated better with kicad BOM export.
            The libraries do not help much, as the MPN are not included on the library.

              • Accurate shipping price evaluation (include import taxes for UPS/DHL/...)

                I bought 10 PCB for 4€38 - 1€32 discount. (round to 4$).
                I payed 21€38 shippement (round to 25$) using UPS.
                So far so good, this was calculated and announced.
                BUT I had to pay additional 20€ to UPS (round to 25$) (about 5€ VAT + 15€ fees for UPS ! )

                This fees are precisely calculated and could be known in advance, please include them (even just estimation) in cart page.
                Simple first step could be to put a simple warning.

                PS: I do not even know how seeed earn money with such low prices

                  • Make logins last longer

                    While assembling a recent order over several days, I was very frustrated by how often I had to log in. I can understand asking for my password before placing an order or viewing account details, but I just wanted to see the items in my cart. I don't think meaningful security is gained by not letting me stay logged in.

                                • would keep discounted EU postage

                                  It really isn't fair for customers who order 10 boards to receive a discount, where customers who order more do not. This discount is more fairly distributed among all customers if it comes in the form of cheaper postage costs.

                                  • Allow orders to be named

                                    It would be helpful to give orders a name, because now I have a bunch of PCB orders I could share but I don't know what they actually are any more.
