Electronics manufacturing specialist PCH International is looking to find new clients just as they start. To do so, it’s creating an incubator called Highway1 that will help young hardware startups build new products.
PCH International is run by Irishman Liam Casey who has been dubbed “Mr. China” by some. The company is best known for sourcing, manufacturing and distributing goods for some of the biggest consumer electronics companies out there.
With Highway1, PCH International will have early access to some of the most promising hardware startups as they’re building their businesses. When it comes time for them to start mass-producing and shipping products, the company will be right there to help them.
Heading up the incubator will be Brady Forrest, advisor to startups and former member of Khosla Ventures. Forrest joined earlier this year to start the program, which will run for four months and is expected to have two classes a year.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
