• Octanis Makers Night

    Octanis Microverse

    At Octanis, we share skills and tools for making electronics. Anyone can become a member of the association and no skills, titles or seniority are required. Do you have a project you want to bootstrap? Or are you curious to know more about our way of working or our projects? Maybe you hesitate to join the association? The Makers Night is the perfect opportunity to get to know us! We get together to advance on our projects, and update each other on our progress and the challenges we are facing. We own and maintain rapid prototyping tools and measurement instruments for electronics. There is a well equipped and ventilated hand soldering & rework station and a reflow oven for small batch production. Enclosures, cases and other products can be 3d printed, laser cut, CNC milled, sewn or hand crafted just like back in kindergarden. Discover all of it during the Maker's Night! Every Tuesday between 18h15 and 22h at the Octanis Microverse! https://www.octanis.org/

  • Talk: High-Speed PCB Design (with guest speaker from maxon motor ag)

    PCB Layout is an art for itself. Only years of experience will teach you all the small tricks and things to remember to get your electronics board working correctly. Many applications will work even with poor layout design, but when there are more high-speed signals on your PCB, suddenly dozens of criteria will make or break your circuit. Trace lenghts, parasitic capacitance, crosstalk, ground paths - just to name a few. For this talk, we have the pleasure to host someone with many years of experience in this field! Invited speaker: Max Erick Busse-Grawitz, Technology Transfer Manager at maxon motor. He will share the most common pitfalls and things to pay attention to, as soon as you go beyond some simple I2C communication. This is for great interest to anyone who has basic PCB design knowledge and wants to go further. The talk is followed by a Q&A session with Apéro where you can ask more specific questions.

  • PEE104: Surface Mount Reflow Technique and PCB Debugging

    Octanis Microverse

    20,00 CHF

    This is a hands-on workshop teaching you everything you need to know to perform professional PCB assembly. Optional: Bring your own PCB, components and stencil, if you already have one! After the official part, you can stay here and continue working on your own board. We will be here to help you (20:00 - 22:00) Learning Objectives: - Tools and material needed for SMD assembly - Applying solder paste - Manual placement of components - Automatic pick and place machine - Reflow soldering - PCB rework and debugging. Teacher: Raffael Tschui from Octanis Instruments, Electrical Engineer MSc EPFL.

    At Octanis, we develop pragmatic, open source and low cost solutions to practical problems. We share experiences and tools, and make rapid incremental progress while embracing failure. Above all, we accept everyone for who they are. A project begins with a suggestion from a member during the Makers Night. This formal proposal can be a simple presentation or a prototype "show-n-tell". If other members are convinced, ressources can be allocated to the project and the project is given 18 months time to grow up. Do YOU have a project you want to bootstrap? Or are you curious to know more about our way of working or our projects? Maybe you hesitate to join the association? The Makers Night is the perfect opportunity to get to know us! We get together to advance on our projects, and update each other on our progress and the challenges we are facing.
