Design and Fabrication
We design and build analog and digital circuits for research and teaching laboratories. Common circuits include detector pre-amplifiers, signal conditioning amplifiers, computer interfaces, motor drivers, high voltage and high frequency circuits, and specialized power supplies.
We etch double-sided printed circuit boards (PCB) for prototyping. The rates for board production are:
$20 for boards up to 13.5 in2, $30 for boards 13.5 in2 to 27 in2, and $40 for boards from 27 in2 to 54 in2
