 {{:​milling_machine.jpg?​nolink&​400 |}}Here at The Hive, we have a suite of tools made by LPKF that enable students to fabricate printed circuit boards (PCBs). Students go through a three-step training process to gain access to the tools, after which they can use the equipment and our materials free of charge whenever The Hive is open. {{:​milling_machine.jpg?​nolink&​400 |}}Here at The Hive, we have a suite of tools made by LPKF that enable students to fabricate printed circuit boards (PCBs).

 +There'​s no such thing as a '​best'​ microcontroller. It all depends on what you want to do. Therefore, depending on your needs, one microcontroller might be more appropriate. For example, the fastest chips tend to use more power than the slowest ones. The boards with the most I/O pins are bigger (and usually cost more) than ones with fewer features. Below is a list of aspects to consider when choosing a microcontroller. For more information,​ click [[selection-guide|Here]]
