Need a hand/mentor/drinking buddy?
We'd like to help!
Whooshtronics is all about giving back to the hobby, so if you'd like a hand:
a:Getting your design working
b:Turning your design into something others can build or use.
Then let us know. We can help out with every thing from design review to packaging.
What's the catch?
You knew this was comming right?
If we help you, then you must place the whole project in the public domain.
No reservations, no "except if you're a commercial entitiy" fine print. Free to everyone who want's to use it.
We'll also ask that as much of the conversation as possible takes place on a forum. So that others can learn all the little lessons along the way and can chip in their own advice.
There's a lot of people out there with spectacular skills who'd help if you ask..
What won't we do?
As much as we would dearly love to, we just don't have the time to teach you all about electronics from scratch.
You need to have some experience with soldering, understand digital electronics and some programming skills.
But if I have all that, why do I need your help?
There's a VERY BIG DIFFERENCE between getting one circuit mostly working on your bench and a robust, flight ready,
failsafe bit of electronics that'll work every time.
There's another EVEN BIGGER DIFFERENCE between that and getting the thing to a point where it can be manufactured in quantity.
That's what we're good at. We've got all the gear:
- Double sided PCB fab
Semi automated PCB assembly station
Fully automated SMD pick and place machine
SMD Rework bench
Polyurethane encapsulation system
Automted test bench
Shrink wrap machine
And (most importantly) a few years doing this sort of stuff under our belt.
So how about it?
