My Seeed Idea

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. Order specific communications

    Add a "communications" feature in a order item that would enable sending and receiving messages that are directly linked to a specific order. In my case I wanted to send a message with some details about the PCB but it was difficult to find a way to send a message at all.

  2. Go Metric!

    Stop that "mix" of Imperial and Metric units. Some constraints in Fusion are in mils, some in mm. Stop "6/6 mils" ("0.1524/0.1524mm), "8/8 mils" (0.2032/0.2032mm), change to 0.1500/0.1500mm, 0.2000/0.2000mm, etc.

  4. 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.

  8. Fix the PCB specification page in Firefox

    Currently, the PCB specification page does not properly display in Firefox. It seems images are not scaled properly (I suspect because Firefox does not honor the td width parameter), which causes the table to become very wide. On my screen (1280px wide), this causes the table to be cropped at the right, completely hiding the actual data.

    Just now I noticed that the page did properly display in Chrome and found out there was a lot more info on the spec page than I suspected.

    I'm talking about this page: http://support.seeedstudio.com/knowledgebase/articles/447362-fusion-pcb-specification
    I've attached a screenshot of how Firefox 45.4.0 renders…

  12. Mount the actual Grove Connector on the side of the board opposite proximity-critical sensors

    On some boards, like the Grove Sunlight Sensor, it is critical that the sensor be as near the sunlight as possible. Currently, the sensor is mounted so it makes the light travel further than necessary. This is non-optimal placement to get light to sensor. Plus, it’s hard to manage the mounting and wiring against an enclosure. Instead, put the Grove Connector on the other side of the board so the sensor is as near as possible to the enclosure aperture. It will also make wiring simpler. .

  14. 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

  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

  19. International shipping cheaper

    Hello friends am a teacher and want to buy "LinkIt 7688 Smart Duo" to teach my students, the problem is that sending to my country (Chile) is very expensive.
    So I wanted to know if you have some method of cheaper international shipping.
    Because in my country teachers earn little money
    Other stores sent by regular mail and is slower but cheaper
    Thank you very much.

    Don't use DHL to ship to Portugal (I bought a 157€ product and payed 135€ of taxes because DHL decided to put in the customs formulary that they charge around 117€ to transport to Portugal and so the Customs in Portugal have billed me (with the dhl services) the 135€
    I have bought 157€ product with free delivery and because of DHL just cost me more 135€....
    Please use a better company, or ctt
