This page is work-in-progress, not all the components are added - so don't yet use this page to make an order.

PCBs

The last stable PCB release is Gamma release, with files available [####### here].

Sourcing PCBs can be done from different sources. The PCBs you need are: 1) Front PCB: 4x10cm, 2 layers, 1.6mm, ##### 2) Back PCB: 4x10cm, 2 layers, 1.6mm, ##### 3) Keypad PCB: 4x6cm, 2 layers, ###mm, ##### 4) 18650 holder carrier board: 4x7cm, 2 layers, ###mm, #####

It doesn't matter that much whether PCBs have ENIG or HASL plating (though ENIG is the nicer option for soldering). The color of soldermask also doesn't matter as much.

Here are the suggested places you can get the PCBs from: - DirtyPCBs, Elecrow or #########. You get about 10 copies of each PCB. - OSHPark ([##### front], [####### back], [######## keypad] and [######## 18650] PCBs). You get three copies of each PCB.

If you're ordering from places where they have fixed-price 10x10cm panels and allow panelization (such as DirtyPCBs), you can [######## panelize your boards] to ######halve the cost of ordering, so, say, you won't spend $64 ordering 4 different boards, but only $32, ordering 2 panels with 2 boards on each. If you're ordering from places like OSHPark, though, that's not viable, since OSHPark charges by board dimensions.

Pi Zero

As of now, there are multiple resellers for Pi Zero - recently, about 30 more have been added. The site-to-go for looking up Pi Zero availability used to be whereismypizero.com, but now there's thepilocator.com , which has all the online resellers listed, so the latter is the recommended site to find a place to get a Pi Zero.

You can get either a Zero or a Zero W - the Zero W has Bluetooth and doesn't require ESP8266 (thus freeing some pins that can be used for mod boards). However, due to lots of metallic parts around Zero W antenna, WiFi range is slightly decreased, and Bluetooth is not yet supported.

GSM antenna for SIM800

If an external PCB antenna (like on the photo to the right, TODO: add photo) is not listed anywhere in the description of SIM800 breakout listing, you'll also need to get one, since the "gold-plated coil" antenna doesn't fit the breakout due to the way it's installed in ZeroPhone.
