Member News

LATi members saw a fascinating array of projects that Datalink Electronics get to work on, including specialist projects for the oil and gas industry and healthcare sector. The complexity and diversity of the projects that Datalink get to work on made a huge impression on the audience.

Ben Lincoln of Potter Clarkson, said “Jim Allen and Arash Ghadar hosted a fantastic event and it was really interesting to hear about the wide ranging and innovative projects they have worked on.  It was impressive to see that Datalink provides a full product design solution and have expertise in more than just the electronics.

The conversation after the presentations turned to how operating systems and hardware/software interfaces have evolved over time and how a move to an internet of things structure will change design parameters further.

The tour of the manufacturing area included explanations of how the fabrication and quality checking and testing machinery works.  Several other members of staff were there to answer our questions, which really added to the tour. It was also interesting to hear about the systems in place at Datalink to ensure the traceability of components.

It was clear that Datalink have a talented, friendly and hardworking team of people and I really enjoyed meeting them.  Many thanks to Arash, Jim and the team at Datalink and LATi for a great event.”
