Test is NOT someone else's problem...

Too often, PCB designers don’t consider test strategy in their designs. Why should they – test is a manufacturing problem, right?

Yes, it is – in fact, all aspects of PCB design eventually become manufacturing problems if they have not been thought through in the design phase. It’s the worst possible time to uncover problems.

If you are at the point of establishing prices and talking to customers about delivery and you don’t have a test plan including test designs, you’re running a high risk of cost overruns and delays.

Conflict Minerals

Conflict minerals are minerals, the trade of which the United Nations Group of Experts on the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) has found to be helping to finance the civil conflict in the DRC. Many of these minerals are used in the electronics supply chain.

Although SEC's final rule on conflict minerals applies to publicly traded companies only, the requirements are flowing through the entire supply chain. Learn more:
