Building a solar Car is a difficult task that mandates innovation and ingenuity. Almost every part on Arcturus was custom designed and built by the team. This includes all the electronics that run the car. The team makes custom designs for the many printed circuit boards (PCB) on Arcturus, and our other solar cars. Sierra Circuit’s sponsorship has been a great help on this front. They helped the team immensely by manufacturing our custom PCB’s. These Boards were manufactured quickly and with a high standard of quality. The team is very thankful to Sierra Circuits for its sponsorship, and helping make our solar cars run.
