[vote] Universal IR receiver: kit or ready-to-use

Discussion in 'Input/Output Interfaces' started by myscha, April 21, 2016.


Which version would you prefer?

  1. A kit where I have to solder most components myself. It must be cheap.

  2. A kit where I have to solder some components myself, e.g. the connectors.

  3. A completely assembled device. I don't want to solder anything.

    Here I wrote down some features of my universal multi-protocol IR receiver. At the moment I think about manufacturing a small batch and would be happy to know your opinion about whether it should be offered as kit where you'd have to solder some components yourself or as a ready-to-use and completely built device.

    Option A would require you to solder all THT components yourself. The microcontroller would reside on a separate board, that can be plugged in or soldered to the IR board.
    Option B only some THT components, e.g. the connectors.
    Option C comes readily assembled. That would be the smallest board.
