In these difficult times, as lives are at stake during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are especially proud to partner with our new friends at Ventec Life Systems to help test the circuit boards in Ventec ventilators.
At Blue Clover Devices, we're proud to be a hardware company that specializes in both product development, design, and fabrication. This means we also encourage our beavers to take an interdisciplinary approach to learning new skills. This year, we focused on soldering!
Not every board needs to be assembled with a pick and place machine. Especially for those working in a lean startup environment, PCB assembly can be costly and slow. Even with smaller, highly populated SMT boards, one can save money and time by soldering them yourself. Read to learn more!
When it comes to testing your boards, there are only a few broad methods to choose from. If you’re prototyping, manually testing the board by hand is cost-effective and tells you exactly what you need to know. . . Another common method is Flying Probe Test.
