Fremont, CA (PRWEB) January 11, 2006
SchmartBoard, a manufacturer of a new type of tool to help engineers, students and hobbyists create electronic circuits, has signed silicon valley based Frys Electronics to distribute and market its technology. As interest and demand continue to grow, SchmartBoard has begun to add first tier distributors.
Every engineer I know goes to Frys to buy small volumes of electronic components, including prototyping supplies, said Neal Greenberg, VP of sales and marketing at SchmartBoard. Through Frys 32 locations, and its online channel Outpost.com, anyone interested in electronics will have access to our technology.
Frys expects a high level of interest in the new product line which makes it possible for virtually anyone to hand solder integrated circuits (ICs), even BGA (Ball Grid Array) without the advanced hand soldering skills that were once required.
This significantly expands the potential market from experts in soldering to virtually anyone with an interest in electronics, said Greenberg.
