Prototype to production: Building your first PCB Prototype
If you're an engineer, entrepreneur, hardware enthusiast, or anything in between, you've probably read or heard this phrase before - “Scaling a product from prototype to production is incredibly difficult.” Most experienced product designers, engineers, and production managers know this and wear their experience like a badge of pride.
However, the purpose of this ebook is not to endlessly catalog the perils of hardware, or to lecture on why it so frequently goes wrong. It's to convince you that, although bringing a product from concept to reality is difficult, you can do it. The purpose of this ebook is to provide you with helpful information and useful tools to make the process of bringing a product from prototype to production a little bit easier and a lot less intimidating.
