Raspberries are awesome. Pi is awesome. This workshop will be awesome. Come and learn embedded Raspberry Pi stuff, now currently the cheapest computer on the market (Pi zero = $5). See lower panel for more info.
TVCOG PCB Workshop
Going down at the COG 1-4pm November 12, in Downtown Troy.
We will go over footprints, schematics, layouts, popular PCB packages, and the best place to get your designs made! This is a design workshop- no hazardous chemicals will be employed and no etching shall occur in this workshop. The second PCB workshop shall cover the actual etching of a PCB.
