ca-series_001

Boards of the CA-series are entirely made from Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP).

The top and bottom plates consist of CFRP shells structurally joined by tubes and/or ribs made from CFRP.
In addition to the advantages of the AD-series, boards of the CA-series allow the integration of optical / electronic components inside the stiff carbon shell and easy routing of wires and optical fibers.

Breadboards can be ordered customized and with removable side-walls.
