Hi all -
I've been a bit swamped lately and haven't been posting as regularly as I would like to. Hopefully I'll be getting more useful tidbits out there again soon. In the meantime, I'll through out a little marketing glurge just so I can feel like I'm doing something semi-productive here.
So, drum roll please. Here are the top-ten reasons to use Screaming Circuits.
10: Shrinking parts - Dem parts just keep getting smaller and smaller and smaller. Micro BGAs and QFNs were the rage for a while but those are starting to seem big with the increase in 0201s and chip-scale and wafer-scale packages.
I'm seeing 1 Amp power components in silicon wafer scale packages at 2mm x 3mm. That's really hard to do by hand and more components in these form-factors just keep coming.
01: Shrinking schedules - I can remember having three weeks to get some pc boards in and assembled. I can remember the boss asking the team to bring the schedule in a couple of weeks. Well, here you go. 24 and 48 hour turns can do just that.
We can help you turn weeks into days or hours by building the stuff up here for you. Well, actually, we won't be turning the weeks into day, but something that may have taken weeks will now take days.
00: Shrinking support staff - The poor folks in documentation and purchasing are either way too busy or have been downsized. Too many engineers now have to not only design the circuit, they have to lay it out, get it built and get it tested. And with all of this other work, they haven't lost any of the rest of their duties. It's just get it done, get these other things done and get it done faster. Yikes!
So, there you have it. 10b2 good reasons to use Screaming Circuits
I need a nap now
