The Electronic Workshop (EWS) undertakes the construction of flight electronic assemblies, wiring harnesses and complex bespoke scientific instruments. Most of the assemblies are based on high density PCBs with an increasing amount of surface mount components.
Due to the low volume, exceptional component cost and very high standards of work required PCB assembly is carried out using a mixture of proven manual techniques and surface mount assembly machines in a controlled environment laboratory. Technical staff have all undertaken ESA training for hand soldering, PCB modification and rework, surface mount assembly, inspection, crimp wiring construction and are re-certified every 2 years.
