Ever wondered what happens to your SparkFun board before it shows up at your door? You're about to find out! Come on a ride alongside the QuickLogic Thing Plus on its journey from parts to product.
If you've ever wondered how our boards are made, you're in luck today! This behind the scenes video gives you a front row seat to every step of production of the QuickLogic Thing Plus, from the components getting soldered on all the way to packing the red box that ends up in your mailbox.
Our boards are manufactured at SparkFun HQ in Colorado by our highly skilled employees, and all these tools are right here in the warehouse.
Which part could you watch on repeat all day?
Reminds me of the time I took the tour of SparkFun a few years ago when I was passing through Colorado. I think a few things have changed since then -- I don't remember the wave soldering machine, nor the automatic visual inspection. Are you still giving the tours?
You didn't show my favorite part, though: the delight of finding the package in my mailbox or on my doorstep! ;-)
BTW, on the rare occasions that I get to talk to a UPS, FedEx, or USPS delivery person I always thank them for their service! They are great workers!
