June 2015 – July 2015:
My third year vacation work was completed at Nomanini. This company develops a platform for cash-based services in informal markets for services such as selling airtime or electricity.
For four weeks I worked at Nomanini. I started off by working with a test rig used to test the circuit boards in development as the rig was giving unexpected results. This was followed by designing new printed circuit board by using KiCad. Several other small tasks were completed involving analog circuitry.
The housing for the devices had to tested for an Ingress protection rating of 68, completely water and dust proof, which involved numerous experiments to discover how the ingress of water occurred.
Over all Nomanini gave me a wide variety of tasks ranging from Electrical design to product design.
