Where Arduinos are Born: Touring a PCB Factory

By Jason Fitzpatrick on August 14th, 2012

In this photo tour, we’re treated to a peek inside the Arduino factory–a factory located, surprisingly enough, in a small Italian town.

If you were expecting a Foxconn-like tour of a massive Chinese factory, you’re out of luck. Arduinos, those ubiquitous little hobby project boards, are made in the small town of Scarmagno, Italy (and named after a local tavern where their design was brainstormed).

Hit up the link below as Bunnie:Studios takes us behind the scenes.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to. If it can be modded, optimized, repurposed, or torn apart for fun he's interested (and probably already at the workbench taking it apart). You can follow him on if you'd like.
