I’ve been having heaps of fun designing various circuits and random things here and there with my raspberry pi Pico’s. This tinkering has got me wondering, how does one go from a Pico on a breadboard with heaps of wires, into something compact and neat on a PCB.
Something similar to; “how do I turn this mess of wires into something you would find inside a consumer grade product”.
Essentially if I were to turn what I’ve tinkered with into a mass produced item, how would I get the Pico and breadboard onto a PCB that is neat and can have all the necessary components soldered into it for use in a “commercial” product.
Thanks for any advice guys, not trying to actually mass produce and create millions, just curious about the actual process.
Outside of just designing the parts there are usually a lot of other engineering and behind-the-scenes decisions you have to make, The Factory covers a bunch that we’ve run into and a few interesting tid-bits of information!
