Ceramic Capacitor Drilling Machine
IEEE488 commanded gantry system. Some multi-pole connectors are now constructed with a de-coupling capacitor built into the assembly for each pin. The capacitor is developed as a single thick-film substrate on an alumina base, but holes for the pins must be drilled. This system with twin drilling heads takes on-line position commands from a LAN network on IEEE488. Sequencing is via relays.
