PCBs to mounting machine
NOW has worked with a number of PCBs to an automatic mounting machine.
The cooperation with the customer started in the eighties (before Windows, in a time when most electronic components still were hole mounted), and is still going on. The first board generated a 80×22 (characters x rows) monochrome/colour PC-screen, with video and graphics overlay. The board was also used as an interface between the old boards in the machine, and the new world of PC-based PCBs. After this first board other boards followed, for example for controlling stepper motors.
