Printed Circuit Board

If you would like to have a professionally manufactured printed circuit board for the opentherm gateway, there are three options:
  1. Buy a circuit board or even a fully assembled unit from a webshop.
  2. Buy one from another user who has some boards left over from a batch they ordered.
  3. Have your own batch made to order

Buy a circuit board at a webshop

Kiwi electronics sells printed circuit boards, kits, and fully assembled gateways.
VDR Elektronica also offers the OpenTherm Gateway PCB on their web site.

Note: I have no relationship with these webshops and get absolutely no benefits from the PCB's or gateways they sell. So, in case of problems with any item bought at a webshop, you will need to get in contact with their customer service.

Buy a circuit board from another user

The following users have indicated they have some left-over boards they are willing to sell:

User Country Boards Remarks
Lars NL 10 Rev. B (2012) version, 5EUR/pc. PIC and USB cable also available

Let me know if you have some left-over boards from a batch and want to be listed here for other people to get in touch with you.

Order a batch of circuit boards

You can order a batch of ten circuit boards for around $33 (including shipping) from seeedstudio.com or iteadstudio.com. Both charge $24.90 for the boards, but shipping costs are a little bit lower at seeed ($7.80 versus $8.98). However, itead will do a 100% E-test at no extra charge, while seeed by default only does a 50% E-test and charges $10 extra for a full 100% E-test.
