PCB and Other Issues to Start a New Year with!
Our printed circuit board and electronics products found their first customers in Finland in 2012, so the end of the year 2012 did not see many blog postings from us! This is gonna change, especially as these English pages have now been published.
Good PCB Customer Response to Start 2013
It is a great pleasure to report that we have happy customers. A direct quote (with customer permission) explains it best:
- “Today i get from Post office my PCB boards. They look absolute great!!
There was no need of that text layer on top, but otherwise .. look
fantastic, and already i wish to start soldering elements 🙂
Thanks again and for sure my future orders will be from your company !“
We have also delivered Laser paste stencils in 2012!
A framed paste stencil much like the one shown here has been delivered to our customer to start 2013. Pre-tensioned in a steel frame, the 0.12-mm steel paste stencil performs well when it is used in administering ROHS tin paste to dense PCB layouts (the picture is shown with customer permission).
We now accept Paypal! Paypal is the world’s biggest internet payment method. Customers can now pay for LNAFIN products with their credit cards (Visa, Mastecard) or by using their account at Paypal. Additional information on our payment methods can be viewed here.
Now we have (hopefully) made our circuit board products easier to access by adding two web-forms for customer PCB data and gerber files. Using these two request-for-quotation forms, PCB dimensions can be given in millimetres or in mils (thousandth part of an inch). Asking for an offer is of course free!
We are very happy to say that we were able to meet the hard requirements of a VTT business case this month. Technical Research Centre of Finland is one of the largest research organizations in Europe. It has an annual budget of 278 M€ and ca. 2800 employees.
The European Microwave Association is an international non-profit association with a scientific, educational and technical purpose. Our CEO joined EuMA to complement his existing electrical engineering community memberships within IEEE.
Our first power supply customer project for year 2012 starts. We won this project on the merit of our broad prior electronics design experience. At the moment we cannot elaborate on this, but after successful completion we will publish selected results in year 2013.
A three page journal article about LNAFIN has been published in January 2012. This our first ever appearance in the Press. The article presents us, our background and our Products and Services (PCB, PCB design, and ASIC). Please see us at Teollisuuden Näytelehti issue 1-2/ 2012 (in Finnish).
LNAFIN WWW-site pages now have more information about our circuit oriented products like: printed circuit boards (PCB, a.k.a. a printed wiring board), PCB layout design service, electronics design, also including the design service for application specific integrated circuits (ASIC).
Moving in its own premises gives LNAFIN a decent workshop and plenty of office space in Helsinki. This increases the possibilities to serve customers with both electronics prototype and design services.
LNAFIN was accepted as a member of Aalto University StartUp Center. The center has offices in the Ruoholahti district, Helsinki. Aalto University is the biggest technically oriented higher education body in Finland, and one of the largest in the Northern Europe. The attached picture shows a nice view from the StartUp Center grounds.
