Box of Bus Pirate 5 and production tailings

Bus Pirate 5s and the production tailings arrived at the office this morning. A surprising number of the reels are direct from the manufacturer: connectors, diodes, FETs, transistors, etc. International brands like TDK and Samsung came from SZLCSC or the huaqiangbei market.

Look at all that bubble wrap, yuck. We need to figure out a better solution. Maybe we’ll send someone to the assembler to tape the LCDs in place and bring them back next time.

We need add a production management system section on production management to hardware documentation. There’s fifty reels to schlep around and we had two mishaps this run. We need to make sure our parts are the right size and label them consistently.
