CENPA Electronics Shop
The CENPA electronics shop provides modern surface-mount technology and miniature cable manufacturing equipment on site and in appropriately clean areas. The shop continues to do custom design work for specialty pre-amps as well as dedicated multichannel DAQ systems and contracts with outside vendors to effciently produce custom printed circuit boards for these projects in a cost-effective manner. The shop also interacts with the on-campus Washington Technology Center taking advantage of much of the capital-intensive, high-tech equipment there that is more effectively used as a cost-shared facility. The electronics shop staff also provides training for students and other staff members so that they may quickly and easily design, build, and repair their own small projects.
