Fremont, CA (PRWEB) August 1, 2006
SchmartBoard, the developer of a new technology that has significantly simplified the creation of electronic circuits for hobbyists, education and industry, has announced that it has signed Canadian distributor Active-Tech Electronics.
Most people who design electronic circuits do not have the skills to hand-solder surface mount components. SchmartBoard|ez was developed as a solution for this problem. What once could only be achieved by technicians with many hours of experience, can now be done by anyone. A ten year old who has never held a soldering iron, can now hand solder a .4mm IC or a BGA (Ball Grid Array) effortlessly and flawlessly.
“We are excited to have Active-Tech Electronics as a distribution partner for Canada, said Neal Greenberg, SchmartBoard’s VP Sales and Marketing. “In addition to the online sales capabilities, Active Tech is the largest retailer in Canada with 9 locations nationally. We value distributors with retail locations, as they are a fantastic tool for introducing SchmartBoard’s EZ solder technology to new customers.”
Retail locations include Calgary, Edmonton, Mississauga, Montreal (2), Ottawa, Toronto, Mississauga, Vancouver, and Winnipeg.
“SchmartBoard is a perfect fit for our customer base,” said Lee Wise, President of Active Tech Electronics. “We supply engineers, technicians, students and hobbyists who will all benefit from the new soldering abilities that SchmartBoard technology offers users.”
