As a thriving small business, we look for software, vendors, and tools that provide excellent performance with cost effective pricing.
Since many of our clients and potential customers are also small businesses, we want to help you by recommending some of the resources that have served us well.
AOYUE 968A+: Rework station with hot air reflow and soldering iron. This inexpensive tool has helped us to build and rework numerous circuit boards. The hot air reflow is indispensable when working with the tiny components that allow us to deliver compact form-factor PCBs.
Reflowster: We have been able to drastically decrease the time (and cost) of assembling prototype circuit boards by using Reflowster to create a small reflow oven for our lab.
Rigol: Our 2-channel and 4-channel oscilloscopes from Rigol have performed very well for our test and verification needs when looking at dynamic signals on our PCBs. Rigol is cost competitive compared to some of the big names and the performance has been excellent for us.
Monoprice Maker Ultimate: This 3D printer has expanded our ability to quickly experiment with alternative mechanical design concepts by putting physical parts in our hands within minutes or hours.
