New Manufacturer: Electronics Lab

Electronics Lab has an interesting offer: they will make your PCBs for free! There is a catch, of course. You need to make your design open-source and post it to their web site. It looks as if they’ll review your project’s documentation before they green-light the free boards.

There are other limitations too: your board must be one or two layers and no bigger then 10×15 cm. If you’re OK with all this, they’ll send you 5 boards free. Based on the delivery time, we’re guessing the boards will be manufactured in China and shipped by China Post.

It’s hard to find information about this offer, but you can see the details at their blog entry, “Get your PCBs professionally manufactured for FREE on Electronics-Lab.com”.
