The only, small difference is that Pine64 surely doesn't use fine-tip tweezers to perform component placement manually. Big Grin

I would prefer not to disclose more details publicly, at this moment, although there's actually nothing to hide.

You're right about the cheap pick-and-place machines, they are usually not of high quality, and most of them either do not support high density of components, or cannot handle bigger components.  However, I'd consider buying one only if the sales volume outgrows the "handmade" production, which would be a good problem to have.

By the way, my primary goal is not to make a lot of money.  Sure, some money has to be made in order to keep the whole operation afloat, but my primary motivation is to make open devices available to anyone interested in buying, using and tweaking such devices.
