Dear RTCU User,

The summertime is coming and before we go on a well deserved (we think!) holiday we are sending out this newsletter announcing exciting news and important releases on the RTCU scene.
Read more about all the exciting news below

We wish you a nice and hot summer...

Best regards,

The Logic IO Team



Logic IO will close in week 28 (July 10 to July 16, both dates included)
During this period we are not able to ship Products and Support will be limited, and only available through e-mail.
Logic IO will be operating on limited resources in week 29 (July 17 to July 23, both dates included) and our Shipment and Support capabilities will therefore be limited.

If deliveries are required before July 24 we therefore advise any orders to be placed as soon as possible to avoid any delays.

Best regards,

The Logic IO Team
