I haven’t found any help with the search function so here’s my question:
I need a PCB with some SMD components, but I cannot solder one of them: a QFN chip (not available in any other package), I need to solder the other SMD components myself (resistances, capacitors…), it’s not because I think it would cost less, manual soldering is part of the project. Would it be possible to order a PCB with a QFN chip soldered and other SMD pads left free?
How would one make a prototype in this case, I think even Seeedstudio won’t make a flux stencil just for 10 items… would I have to outsource it to some other company. The goal would be to order between 100 to 200 items a year.
