- Neoden YY1 is less than $3K. There’s a thread about it on the EEVblog forum.

- The winning “add on” category hack was a “punch card”
- A $0.10 RISC V part was released by WCH out of China
- The manual is available here and the product page is here
- Maybe Dave will use that on the first product he picks and places? 😀
Agree 100% ( Reflow is the key ) – after purchasing the original Neoden 220a when they first came out , I got a reflow oven which “cooked/ burnt” the boards ( 4 layer with ground planes and distributed temperature profile ) despite moths of fiddling . The conclusion I have come to is the Neoden 245 with camera is great vale for placing all the passives 0603 or larger. We hand place all the large IC’s and have recently got the small conveyor reflow from them, which is a big improvement – Our typical runs are only 100 boards per batch and payback on the small P&P is two batches i.e what we would have paid a CM to populate. Real benefit is no delays getting in the queue at a CM.
