  1. FDC Update
  2. CDC Update
    1. [dE/dx]
  3. CDC Mechanical
    1. Wire Stripping Tool This looks like a very spiffy tool that can have custom heads for any spacing on the striping.
    2. Currently the only part that we can find that we crimp outside the braid is 1/4" long. If anyone knows of a source of shorter parts, that would be very useful.
    3. Electrical Connection
    4. Conducting Epoxy: Yves has identified several vendors and is getting samples of several epoxies. Price-wise, we look to be well below the $25000 we were seeing for the TraBond that is no longer available. We also appear to be able to get the epoxies in much more convenient volumes.
