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!

  4. 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.

  5. Firefly

    I wish seeedstudio would make a deal with the manufacturers of the Firefly RK-3288 and some other awesome products they are working on. Perhaps this isn't possible, but they do have some really neat things they are doing.

    Hi Aaron:
    Thanks for your advice, we will pay close attention to Firefly RK-3288.But we don’t know the “neat things” they are doing, it will help if you can give us some info about this.

  6. Please include a .pdf version of the Eagle Schematic files

    Please include a .pdf version of the Eagle Schematic files for people who don't own Eagle Licences, it would be very helpful. Thanks!

    In particular I'm looking for the schematic for seeed arch gprs v2

  7. Create waterproof Grove connectors

    If Grove (4 pin) connectors could be waterproof, that would make it easier to use outdoors/in harsh environments.

    Wouldn't have to be IP67 or IP68 compliant, just something a bit more robust that what exists.

    You'd need bulkhead connectors as well, so you could put a controller/batteries in a waterproof box, and the sensors someplace else.

    Under Consideration  ·  USB responded

    Hi Andrew:
    Thanks for your advice, we believe that waterproof function is important in harsh environments for groves. But since the sensor itself needs to be waterproof, we believe that an enclosure for the whole grove module may be better.
    Please let us know your opinion.

  8. Sign In button jumps left when Facebook button arrives!

    In my case [FireFox 33.1.1 on Win 7 64bit] the "Sign In" button jumps left when the slothful Facebook button finally appears. The timing places the Facebook button under my mouse pointer at exactly the same time as perform a mouse click -- hugely frustrating!

    I suggest you move the Facebook button to a position under or above the Sign In button.

  9. Seeed ruler

    I want to make a geek ruler.This ruler should include common package, trace width, button battery, led. buzzer. Anyone who want to test components whether breakover, he just need to put it on the pad and judge the sound. Also he can use this ruler as a flashlight. Please give me some more useful ideas

  10. Few more details for 3D printing

    The 3D printing should show the output design diameters for confirmation after uploading the STL file. Now there is an 3D image of the design and volume being calculated. I would like to see the volume units and general diameters for confirmation of my design. If I saw that my print dimensions match the ones on the site it would be very helpful. I would imagine that this would make things very clear and lower the ordering threshold from customers also.

  11. Tutorials

    Tutorials for how to use your shields would be great. Especially configuring other devices that run off of them. Like an X-Bee for example

  12. create a vacuum / pressure sensor from 30" Hg to 3 atm.

    A vacuum and pressure sensor that is Arduino compatible that can measure from 30" mercury vacuum to approximately 3 atmospheres pressure. It'd be great for those of us using Arduino as engine ECUs to be able to have fine-grained control of engine parameters by knowing intake vacuum or pressure. Knowing the intake cross-sectional volume, the intake vacuum or pressure (in the case of blown engines) could also be used as an intake air flow sensor, which will really be beneficial to those of us using heated water injection to create extra cylinder pressure via steam expansion (to measure if we're…

    Hi DB:
    We think this is a very professional area for the industrial control, would you please give us more advise about the popular sensors in this area, so we can make our products more convenient for you to use.

  13. 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.

    We’ll take all those suggestion into consideration while updating the new version. Thanks for your share.

  14. stop overcharging for shipping Fusion PCBs

    Please charge customers for the correct shipping weight instead of the maximum for PCBs of any given size. Most companies do this.

    For an example, Arduino (shield)-sized boards are only one third the size of the 10cm x 10cm board category that must be used to buy them, but they are only ONE THIRD of the size and weight. We have to pay (express) shipping for TRIPLE the weight of the actual order and this can be substantially more expensive.

    Please use the actual board size to compute the proper weight. Many other lower-cost PCB prototyping services do this, and…

  15. "Service and Gifts" -> "Service" and "Gifts"

    Please split the category of your shop's website for "Service and Gifts" into two categories "Service" and "Gifts". These categories have nothing to do with each other, and it makes getting to Fusion services a little more difficult.

    I'm guessing that new people to the site and going to have trouble finding the PCB service ("Fusion") if they don't know that it's called "Fusion" and would not think to look in a "Gifts" category...

    thanks

  16. Lotus version with a Picaxe chip

    The idea of combining the Grove system with an ATmega chip in the recent Lotus board is great. Working in the field of education, also using Picaxe chips along with a free flowcharting software (Logicator) we are dreaming of a same type of board with a 28x2 chip.

  17. Please review shipping package box material being used.

    My 1st ever order from Seeed for Sark110 Vector-Impedance Analyzer arrived via Postage Service but the packing box was badly crushed and some damage to Analyzer (that i had to repair) had occurred. The small size outer packing cardboard carton box was simply not strong enough for International Shipping.

  18. Put an information sheet into arduino shield products sold at Radio Shack.

    You need to put instructions into the boxes of products that go to Radios Shack. I spent over 2 frustrating hours combing both sites for information. And still I do not know the pins that I need to toggle to turn on relays from my "Seeed Studio Relay Shield." Is it too much to ask for a pinout and sample code? Or at the very least a LINK TO A WEB PAGE WITH THAT INFORMATION??????

  19. should a new customer enter an incorrect phone

    should a new customer enter an incorrect phone number then updating the user profile does not fix the incorrect phone number that appears when the customer is asked to select the address that the parcel is to go to.

    Excuse the lengthy sentence fragments.

    This might cause people to re-enter the profile edit mode only to cancel an transaction that is well under way...
    That transaction cancel-ation due to user editing incorect phone number in mid transaction can cause (did in my case) the session / transaction to kick the user out of the website into its home-routers/modems homepage...

    Theoretically:…

  20. Screw Shield Board for Industrial DIN Rail Enclosures

    Seeeduino and Linkit can replace and disrupt industrial PLCs industry. Your boards only need a Screw Shield with 5.08mm pitch screws and a screw shield PCB so it can fit in traditional Bud Industries industrial enclosures (those enclosures are very inexpensive).

    So the screw shield should meet Arduino connector specs and also needs the PCB to be sized such way that fits perfect inside the enclosure.

    Please see the PCB board currently offered by BudIndustries, which can be easily adapted to work like a screw shield for seeeduino platform.

    Yes, the Seeeduino ScrewShield will be bigger but will provide space…
