Canby, OR (PRWEB) July 20, 2006
Screaming circuits, Internet specialists in quick-turn prototype and short-run pc board assembly, today announced a new program aimed at helping universities and associations involved in communications, robotics and control related research projects.
This country is currently in the midst of a rapidly progressing cycle of technology innovation. University sponsored groups are pushing the state-of-the-art in a number of different electronic fields. There are many open source or low-cost tools usable for designing circuits with the newest microcontrollers and other components. However, many of these parts are so small or have the connections underneath or have so many ultra fine-pitch pins that they are simply not possible to assemble without professional equipment.
“We want to support this type of innovation,” said Duane Benson, Screaming Circuits marketing manager. “By making our assembly services more accessible to these groups, they can build more advanced, more compact and more reliable designs.” Under this program, Screaming Circuits will offer discounts on assembly services to selected organizations.
The program is open to University-based or non-profit teams that are dedicated to pushing the envelope and seriously advancing the state of robotics, communications, control or other similar 21st century technologies. If qualified and approved for sponsorship, we may be able to offer one or more of the following services: discounts on assembly labor, technical expertise, connections or publicity. Spots are limited. For more information, go to the website at http://www.screamingcircuits.com/about-us/newsletter.aspx
