555 LED Flasher custom made pcb circuit

My 555 LED Flasher custom made pcb circuit finally arrived. Yay!

Previously I had designed this circuit and pcb layout as a test run (see previous post) and sent it off to OSHPark for manufacturing. It turned up in the post for last night.

It took about 3 weeks from time to placing the order to me receiving it, which seems quite reasonable for a part time hack like me. I don’t need high turn around times.

The PCB board looks really nice and well made. I could never get this much detail or compactness if I attempted to create a PCB on my own at home (hate playing with nasty chemicals!) But the proof will be when I solder in the components.

If I get some time this weekend I might have a go at transferring the components from the breadboard and soldering them onto the PCB. Once this is done then my workflow from design to finished product will be complete.
