    Poor Quality, Dirty PCB Intel Edison Mini Breakout Board

    WX3080

      Hi,

       

      I was excited to receive my first brand new Intel Edison Mini Breakout Board Kit last week. It arrived properly packaged in an intact, factory sealed box. While the actual Edison board looked ok, I was very surprised about the mini breakout board.

       

      One USB port is oxidized and on the other side of the PCB I found soldering residue. It is beyond me to understand how a world leader like Intel could have missed these obvious quality flaws. I assume that their Chinese factories also operate a sophisticated quality control system?!

       

      Especially at the high pricepoint of the Edision compared with other US made Linux SBCs I truly expected more.

       

      I would appreciate a comment and a solution from Intel.

       

      Best,
