ICD Electronics Ltd. is a digital electronic´s laboratory that offers standardized and personalized electronical products, developing new projects and products for industrial electronics as well as for consumer electronics. ICD Electronics also offers services of programming the microcontrollers for industrial use, the control of manufacturing machinery and other as per customers requirements.
ICD Electronics is a research and development laboratory operating in the field of digital electronics.
The R&D laboratory as well as the manufacturing base and the main distribution center is based in Latvia. The company also has distribution points in Paris, France and in Alicante, Spain.
The strength of the company lies in its qualified and experienced engineers. The lead engineer is Mr. Juris Egle with more of 40 years of experience in the field of R&D in electronical engineering.
Juris got his bachelor degree in radio engineering in 1973, when Latvia still formed part of Soviet Union. In the soviet times Juris worked for the Soviet Union´s Information and Computing Center as the Head of Technical Operation Division. In 1977 Juris installed the first computer in his hometown Cesis.
After the collapse of Soviet Union Juris worked for different companies, developing systems of controlling the central heating.
In 2003 Juris started his research in the field of radiation dosimeters, since then he has developed various models of dosimeters as per requirements of the customers.
Juris can never stop in the personal growth, so in 2007 he obtained Engineer qualification and professional master degree in Electrical Engineering with main fields of study - computerised control of electrical technologies. Now he continuous his studies to obtain doctor degree in Electrical Engineering at Riga Technical University where he also is a professor.
Recently the merger of the experienced engineer and private investors has created ICD Electronics.
The project is developed with the support of European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), therefore the project is supervised and audited by the European Union and Latvian government institutions that are involved in the management of the Structural Funds.
Matter is made up of atoms. Each atom consists of a nucleus which is surrounded by neutrons which gravitate around it like satellites. Radioactive substances spontaneously produce Gamma or X and/or Beta particles or sometimes Alpha particles.
Beta particles are electrons. Because of their charge, they react very strongly to matter. They can travel from a few centimetres to a few metres through the air. A sheet of aluminium can stop them.
Alpha particles are helium nuclei (2 protons and 2 neutrons). They can travel a few centimetres through the air. A sheet of paper can stop them.
Gamma rays are electromagnetic rays formed during physical phenomena which take place within the nucleus of the atom. Gamma rays can produce ions directly or indirectly (ions are atoms or molecules with an electric charge which is not nil) while they travel through matter. They can travel dozens of metres through the air. A thick quantity of lead and concrete can significantly reduce their impact.
X rays are similar to Gamma rays but are formed by physical phenomena occurring within the electronic structure of the atom. They are used for medical purposes and are rarely found in nature.
