The brains of Argon drives have arrived!

The microcontrollers used in the first batch of Argon drives have arrived for programming. We program these chips in house and send them to assembly house so we don’t need to make an needle bed type programming device to program mounted chips. So drives become functional right after assembly will be ready for quality control & compliance testing.
