Hummingbird 48

We were approached by a UK Aero Engine Manufacturer to design and manufacture a bespoke product for use in an aero engine test bed. 


Working closely with the customer, we outlined a specification that fully met their data acquisition requirements and time frame by utilising some of our expertise from similar projects.


The anodised aluminium unit was designed to be conduction-cooled to minimise the need for fans. A number of aluminium heat spreaders were milled to draw heat away from each individual electronic assembly.


Made using a connecting arrangement of six electronic assemblies, ranging from eight to fourteen layers and over seven thousand individual components. All boards were designed, laid out and manufactured in-house.
