IONLAB at ISC, Trivandrum

Posted on 19 January 2010 by Roopa

We were in Kerala last week, putting up posters, talking to umpteen people and showing a demo of Track Every Coin! Yes .. we were at the 97th Indian Science Congress for 5 days at Thiruvananthapuram and we had a cozy little stall for Ionlab.

The Indian Science Congress is the largest national science event in India with thousands of delegates participating, exploring, understanding and interacting on the matters of science. It was one platform where innovators across India came together to exhibit technology and innovations. We were overwhelmed for having been invited to participate and set up a stall at an event of such magnitude.

The ISC was inaugurated by the Prime Minister of India followed by the inauguration of the Children’s Science Congress by Dr Abdul Kalam. The Govt of India’s department for Scientific & Industrial Research (DSIR) sponsored stalls at the exhibition to encourage Entrepreneurs through their TEPP initiative.

It was a great learning and a product validation opportunity for us at Ionlab. We showed demos of the product and its features to people from various walks of life – students, IT professionals, home makers, small-medium businessmen to academicians. Everyone loved it! The beauty of TECI really lies in the simplicity and versatility of what it offers to each and every person. We identified that there is a clear demarcation of segments who find the mobile application more useful than the hardware device and vice versa.

We sold a few of our first product The ION – USB Charger as well. 🙂

The overwhelming response is a big confidence boost and we are working fiercely towards putting the bits together and bringing Track Every Coin to you soon!

Manufacturing of Track Every Coin

Posted on 09 January 2010 by Vikram

We have completed the manufacturing of our PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards). We are working with our partner Micron EMS, who are into Electronic Manufacturing Services. The process of putting the components together is fascinating. We thought we will show you the process.

Here is a small video showing how the components are placed together…

All components are surface mounted and some of them are as small as 1.00 mm by 0.5 mm. The robot picks up the components and places them at the right place and it does it with great precision.

After all the components are placed they are soldered using a wave soldering machine. Here are the PCBs placed after soldering.

After soldering of the components these PCBs will be tested and assembled.

Hope you enjoyed watching the video. We thought it was quite cool.
