PCBs and stuff

So what is the worst part of being the electrical engineer in a team?

Well, you can probably guess on a lot of things, but one thing that for sure makes them somewhat grumpy is realizing that the mechanical engineers didn’t really think as far as electronics. You see the mechanical engineers are always the first to complete the design, then the electrical engineers come in and get whatever space is left to squeeze in the electronics.

There still some space left in there. Just shove it in there between the optical sensor and the cartridges. It'll be fine.

But come on, I mean really, how hard can it be? Just stuff some of that electrical gizmo magic in there and make it move and stuff. (Yes, the author of this specific article just happens to be a mechanical engineer 😉 )

Just one of the electrical engineers working with whatever space was left over. I hope he's not too angry. He looks angry...

Good thing we have a couple of brilliant electronics guys to save us. The SCRAP experiment is moving forward, and yes even the electronics.
