How are you handling the placement of the QFP and SOIC chips? This isn’t by hand? I’m assuming you have a pick and place machine?

All this can be soldered at home with good solder iron and flux, fun/pain starts with BGA chips...

Could this be made as a kit?

P.S. However it's up to you guys if you make a group order of parts according to the BOM that will be provided later. The community is always welcome to assist in making kits available for the public!
The bare PCBs with brackets and BOM will be there.

Following this thread. Looking forward to one or more of these.

When I assemble bought loose PCB, should I get the CT4520 elsewhere?
Then I'll have to go find the CT4520 card. 😀

Are there any mid-way options? That's a lot of precision soldering and while I do have a donor CT4520 I don't fancy my chances of doing that much SMD without a mistake/bridge etc.

I understand why. And presumably CT4520 are not rare enough for it to be worth the trouble of sending you them in. At least for now 😀
Maybe by doing this you'll push the price right up and I can sell my CT4520 for a bit more!
