Cynthion Manufacturing Progress

by Straithe

Cynthion update time!

Final samples have been manufactured, some of them have been sent for RoHS testing (and each of them has passed), and manufacturing is under way. Everything’s going great so far, and we’re on track for June shipping!

Here is your first glimpse of finished Cynthions in their enclosures and in the boxes we will be shipping them in.

The significance of RoHS testing is that Cynthion had to pass that test in order for us to earn our CE marking, which allows us to sell Cynthion in the EU. RoHS stands for “Restriction of Hazardous Substances in Electrical and Electronic Equipment” and this directive requires that electronic and electrical equipment does not exceed certain thresholds for lead, cadmium, mercury, and other hazardous substances. RoHS testing is completed by a third-party lab and the lab we chose used “destructive testing methods” which meant that we had to send a few completed Cynthions, including enclosure and packaging, for them to destroy.
