What Clients say

I would like to thank Core Source for all of the advice and expertise provided to make this design successful within the short time constraints that we had. Our schedules do not have a lot of chances to do hardware design spins, so I am very happy that we got working boards on such a complex design without multiple redesigns.

I want to take a moment to say "thank you" for pulling this all together. It took a lot of effort by a lot of people to get the RC71 ESD tested on such short notice. I really do appreciate everyone pitching in to make this happen.

The rack fit as designed without the need for any adjustments. Many thanks to your team for executing a successful design with such a short schedule.
