TinyCircuits Has a New Home!

TinyCircuits Has a New Home!

We started looking around for some office space and a place to start production in Akron about halfway through the Kickstarter Campaign, and settled on Canal Place, the site of the former BF Goodrich Headquarters and largest rubber factory in the world. This was converted to mixed office and industrial space in the late 80's, and was the perfect match for our needs (plus for all you Black Keys fans, they filmed the video for "Your Touch" in our parking lot). We started moving in about a month ago, and are up and running for the last two weeks.

 

In-House Production

We acquired a SMT assembly line about a month ago, and had it delivered around 3 weeks ago.

The 14 foot long reflow oven being unloaded, this was lots of fun getting up to our office on the 5th floor :)

Since then, we've gotten all the electric and ventilation installed and are now permitted to run our equipment. We've also got them mostly all programmed up and tested out, and everything's working great so far. We'll be sure to get more pictures and videos as we start cranking out some TinyDuino's.
