Podcast Ep.19: PCB Depaneling
PCB Depaneling is the process of breaking the individual PCBs out of the panel that is used to assemble the boards and is typically one of the very last steps assembled circuit boards go through before they are shipped.
Welcome to our 10th episode of the podcast! Not only is this our 10th full episode, but we also have recently surpassed 1,000 episode downloads.
As a thank you to all our listeners we're giving away $100 of credit to ten people that can be used on PCBA assembly of any future CircuitHub order.
On this episode we talk to Joel Murphy, an electro-mechanical designer and fabricator with 15 years of hands-on experience in the design of products and small scale production tooling. He's also a huge advocate for the Open Source Hardware movement, founder of Flywheel Lab, OpenBCI and more!
We had an awesome time chatting to Joel about how his work as a visual artist has enabled him to find a creative approach to problem solving in the electronics engineers and programming space that most engineers typically wouldn't think of.
We chat Joel's experience getting electronics made:
Joel's advocacy of the Open Source Hardware movement:
Joel also recently contributed to the MIT E-vent emergency ventilator project.
We go into importance of communicating with your manufacturer special considerations and expectations you may have - real people who want to do a great job are behind building your stuff.
