PCB Making Success Stories
Sunstone PCBs are often used for groundbreaking technologies and cutting-edge research. Other times we are the PCB design company for historic projects and student-run research and design. Either way, we are proud to have Sunstone PCBs be part of your success.
PCB making and design enables us to be a part of our customers’ successes. Please read the following success stories and consider us to be your PCB design company.
USS Midway Museum "SINS Room" Restoration Project, San Diego
Work is underway to revive this vessel's retired electronics system. This portion of the project will involve 23 Sunstone PCBs on board this historical aircraft carrier! This is a work in progress, please watch for updates on remaking history here!
Team 211 “The MAK Team” of FIRST Robotics, Rochester NY
"I am an Engineer at Kodak who works with the Marshall High School Robotics team. We build and design robots to compete in yearly competitions. I coordinate the team which creates the electrical system of the robot. My students are all inner city kids with usually no electronics background. I typically purchase (often with my own money) electronics projects for the students to assemble to learn about soldering and electronics. This year I decided to build my own. This is why I am coming to you."
University of Akron - Lunar Construction Robot
The engineering team at the University of Akron, won first place in a competition to create a robot that can construct, what could possibly become, the foundation for Humanity’s roots on the Moon. This construction robot will locate, excavate and seal lava tubes that will be used to provide heat for the first human inhabitations.
The overarching design principal for the competition is the simplification of the robot and reduce the overall size, weight and cost. The team from the University of Akron won this competition with its elegantly simple robot prototype and Sunstone is honored to be their PCB design company and part of their success.
Cornell University - Cornell Racing
"My name is Simon Wong and I am contacting you from Cornell Racing. I am the electronics subteam leader."
"A Junior undergraduate is going to be building a dashboard for our 2007 car complete with an LCD display and some control interface. Furthermore, a Master's of Engineering student is designing our new data acquisition system to collect information from sensors as well as the CAN network. Finally, a Sophomore might get the chance to see some design experience by designing a voltage subtractor as an accessory to the data acquisition system to log data where we are interested in only the difference between two sensor values."
"Even though Cornell Racing is one project team, we offer learning opportunities at many different experience levels for PCB design."
"Furthermore, these projects must interface together as part of a complete system. This opportunity is really only made possible by the generous support of Sunstone Circuits. Once again, thank you so much for your continued support of Cornell Racing. Please let me know what you think about our 2006 story and if there is anymore information you would like to know about us." - Simon Wong, Cornell Racing
