757 Labs A Hackerspace in Hampton Roads, Virginia.


Circuit Board Creation – First For The Lab

Members of the lab have finally started creating custom circuit boards for projects. The first is a custom board based on the electronics done for last year's high altitude balloon launch. The purpose of the board is for this year's entry into the Hackerspaces in Space high altitude balloon contest.

It took numerous tries, but progress has come around! More information to come once the board is fully populated.

Currently we're using the technique of transferring toner to a glossy surface, then ironing it onto the copper PCB surface, then etching with cupric chloride or ferric chloride.

Nice traces!
