Where to produce PCBs?

I'm wondering, where does Sparkfun produces its PCBs and make their SMD assemblies? In office or in China?

Thank you Cannibal.

I have no compass right now. Maybe only option I have is to navigate a bit and find my orientation according to position change on GPS. This brings me some extra movement and error at the first initialization but I think I have no other option as a pratical solution for now.

Orientation with GPS

Hi all, I need to track a path which is drawn on a map by gps device. But my problem is, how can my robot determine its orientation? Say that I have drown a path going north. What if my robot is heading south? It should make a U-turn first than follow the path. How would you determine that orientati...

Hi KreAture..
Can I get the part list of the breakout board you have developed for TCM8240MD?

Thank you so much :)

OK, I see. But I want to concantrate on the rf transmission part :) Lets say that I'm making the cam to work at 352x288 resolution. Now, 15fps * 0.1 * 8 = 12 Mb/s which makes about 1.5Mb/s for instantaneous bandwidth. By which means can I transfer this image to the pc in a suitable range (about 100m...

Well, in datasheet, it says "JPEG encoded data (8 bit parallel) for full 1.3 Mega data" and "up to 15 fps for every resolution".. (http://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Sensors/Imaging/TCM8240MD_E150405_REV13.pdf).. of course it doesn't have to work at 1.3Mega. I can use smaller resolutions. The images...

@bigglez, thank you for your informing post :) Lets answer your question. I have TCM8240MD cmos camera from SFE. At first level, lets don't mind how to get it worked. Assume that I made it work with ARM7 or smt. else with high bandwidth and clock, and get JPEG data from that. Now, I want to put this...

Say that I could managed to get JPEG data out of it :) After that what route should be followed to send that JPEG wirelessly? :)

I had an cmos color image sensor which is produced by toshiba (sold on SFE). How can I use it wirelessly?

Wireless image with XBee?

Can I use a XBee module to transmit image from a regular webcam to a nearby pc? Range should be app. 100m or larger

Thank you :)

I'm looking for a simpler one and with a wider range. It can be a DIY project with some cheap rf parts. Any suggestions?
