Underwater exploration is the latest adventure Cambridge Circuit Company PCBs can lay claim to, thanks to our sponsorship of Cambridge Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (CAUV).

We’ve recently produced PCBs for the exciting project and the team have now written a step-by-step guide on how to make a PCB, including information about our sponsorship and manufacturing processes.

The guide includes sections on PCB design, manufacture, materials, stencils, soldering and placing components and has been written in an accessible format and style, making complex processes easy to understand.

We’re featured in the manufacturing section and delighted the team are very happy with the PCBs we manufactured for them.

CAUV is a student developed autonomous submarine. AUVs are completely unmanned and are capable of making critical mission decisions without assistance from human sources. This cutting edge technology allows exploration of underwater environments that are hard to explore using conventional methods.

You can read their ‘How to make a PCB’ article here. 

The CAUV team is entirely composed of students and is open to all. They’re always looking for new members, so if you’re interested in joining please email them at [email protected]
