EV Board Service
We can make an EV Board for your
I2C or SMB IC for a fixed price of US$499
- Design PCB
- Manufacture Prototypes
- Basic Functional Test of prototypes
- Shipping included
- drivers and terminal software supplied
- Opportunity Cost: We can give you
customers the EV board you don't get around to making.
Never underestimate the laziness of your customers.
- Inventory: Your EV Board becomes very
simple, with a very low inventory and stocking cost. The
complicated part, the I2C-2-PC adaptor is our
problem. For you it is a single standard part.
- Low real
cost: Your engineers aren't wasting time doing
ev boards. Our price is the whole price.
- E.V boards can be a useful product, not
compromised with clumsy printer-port kludges and the such
like. They are more likely to interest your customers, if
they do something useful.
- Cover ALL the bases with no extra effort: USB and
RS232, cross-platform Linux, Windows,
- Low Cost: Our BL232 is low cost, and can
be used directly when you need high volume, low cost
You need to:
We will telphone to discuss your needs and objectives. We will
try to design in one of these ways:
- Smallest and Cheapest EV Board.
- What we think would be a useful module using
your IC, for the world at large. This won't be just a
pure EV bd
- A DIN rail mount module if it would be industrially
- Add it to an existing I2C board. This might also have
some of your competitors products on it.
- A multi-ic EV Kit for several of your companies products.
(This might run into more time/cost of course)
Then we confirm what we propose to do by email
You pay by Paypal, and ship us sample IC's and any other
information and special parts. You need to order any additional
I2C-to-PC adaptors also.
We do the design, get the PCB's manufactured, hand assemble
prototypes. This will normally take 4 weeks, unless your need is
We ship you the package with
- 5 EV Bd Prototypes (may depend on size and complexity
- 1 I2C to PC adaptor is included
- Driver disk for adaptor
- PDF's of board overlays, schematics, parts lists.
- Windows software to communicate with the IC
- Any extra product you ordered
- quotes from independent assemblers to build your EV
We may add the board to our web store unless you specifically
request that we don't.
