CASPER Manufacturing

CASPER has several manufacturing partners that the group uses to have its own boards built. If you are interested in purchasing assembled and tested boards, enclosures, cable assemblies, memory, etc, most CASPER hardware can be purchased from Digi-com Electronics, http://digicom.org. All of CASPER's collaborators acquire boards in this manner when they need low volumes.
