Rotator cards for the openASC

9 Jan 2014 by sm0w, No Comments »

Since I now have the openASC system up and running at the station I want to implement the rotating possibility from the system. So this last week I visisted Mike SJ2W in Luleå, Northern Sweden and made 10 rotator cards that can be built into rotator controllers and hooked on the sytembus. The PCBs are coated with soldering paste and all small SMD components are picked with a small needle with vacuum suction and placed at right spot on the PCB's. Then everything is heated in a special oven and out comes finished cards in no time compared to doing everything by hand with a soldering iron. Some pick and place pics =)
