“Our intern Wenbo Ge was fantastic. There was one specific piece of test equipment that we had previously designed that cost us $10,000 in parts and $3,000 in software. Wenbo was able to re-design the fixture so that total part cost was under $2,000 and he also eliminated the expensive software by writing the code with a free online tool that he found.”
