    The CTI Advantage

  • Design & Verification ProcessSolid Process for Custom DesignISO 9001 certifiedPrototypes and Compliance TestingVerification ReportCan quickly ramp up to large scale manufacturing, with support processes

  • CTI Assembly EquipmentFacilitating quick turn assembly:Stencil PrinterAccurately applies solder pastePick and PlaceProgrammable rapid part placementReflow OvenControlled soldering with profilesBGA Rework StationReplacing large FPGAs, bridges

  • CTI Verification EquipmentPerforming rapid validation:Verifying signal integrity9 GHz oscilloscope, with PCI-SIG compliance software and test equipmentStressing power supplies and batteriesHigh power multi-output power sourceHigh capacity multi-node digital loadFunctional testing over full operating temperature rangeTemperature Chamber

  • Faster Time to Market =Generate Revenue Quicker

    Immediate Proof of Concept using off the shelf modulesQuick turn custom design/build, fully validatedOn-going manufacturing capabilities, take advantage of relationships with CMs and PCB houses both local and off-shoreNo quantity too small

    David is the remaining CTI original founders that is still actively involved in CTI operations. A graduate of University of Waterloo, Systems Design Engineering program, once heavily involved in the engineering process, is now actively involved in day to day operations.*Our products includeOur off the shelf products create an IP Pool that we pull from for Custom design. Our experience with Switch to PDF examples of these processes, for quick look at documentation/processCOM Express carrier boards allow the customer to future proof their unique design. The cost to replace a COM Express module is reduced as the carrier board remains the same.*Extended temperature feature rich board, ideal for Mil-Aero markets, VMWare support for running Linux and Windows on virtual machines. XMC expansion makes this the kitchen sink carrier board perfect for prototyping while less expensive than COM Express module starter kits. Includes USB 3.0, HDMI, Display Port, DVI, LVDS and VGA as well as HD audio. Allows for two x Gigabit Ethernet.*Targeted at small embedded applications that still need high performance and latest generation peripherals. Same size as a basic COM Express module at 125mm x 95mm.

    *Enhanced temperature range of -30 to +80C.*A comparison chart of the COM Express Carrier boards. Customization or new design requests are welcome!*In 2010 Connect Tech selected the qseven standard as our method of creating a single board computer in the PC104 form factor. Up until this point all of our peripherals were being installed on top of SBCs by other manufactures making this a good place to start our carrier board line of products. By incorporating q7 our customers are better able to plan for next gen processors, extend the life of their pc104 stack while allowing them immediate access to the most current gen processors. *The first two COTS solutions that we created support PCIe/104 and PCI-104. They are very full featured offering almost all of the features q7 has to offer to various connectors around the board. Pictured here is our PCIe/104 board, the PCI-104 is almost identical with exception of the pcie vs pci connector.*As not all of our users are interested in PC/104 and determining the need for a low cost carrier board solution we spun 2 new COTS solutions, one in the PicoITX form factor and another small footprint (custom size) board. *A comparison chart of the COM Express Carrier boards.
