Newbury Innovation Expands Development Team with New AppointmentSeptember 26, 2016 | Newbury Innovation
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Newbury Innovation, the electronic design division of Newbury Electronics, has appointed Jonathan Hilliard to the position of Electronics Design Engineer. Jonathan qualified earlier this year with an M Eng in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the University of Bath.
Commenting on the latest member to join his team, Jon Hawkins, Technical Director, said; "Jonathan is a highly qualified and competent engineer who is already making a contribution to our design work. His work placements at Rolls Royce and Monodraught gave him valuable real life experience which has helped him to settle in to the Newbury Innovations team." Jon is passionate about supporting and encouraging young electronics engineers and believes that if the industry does not do more to support the next generation then it will soon be facing a serious challenge to find appropriate skilled staff.
"I first encountered Newbury Innovation whilst on work experience and then had dealings with them as part of their support for the university. I am delighted to have secured this role which means I can work on fast paced design projects for real applications. These days product designers have high expectations of what a PCB can deliver; everything needs to be portable and connected so there is a drive to cram increasing capabilities onto ever smaller boards." When not working Jonathan is a world class bog snorkeller and is currently the Northern Ireland champion. He also enjoys archery and swimming.

It’s easy to get distracted in an election year. A constant stream of polls, primaries, and political prognostications will surely dominate the media cycle. Elections are important, but they should not distract the 118th Congress from the important work of securing our fragile supply chains and rebuilding microelectronics manufacturing capacity on our own shores.
IPC’s efforts in government relations and advocacy have been pivotal in getting legislation like the CHIPS Act passed. In February, IPC President and CEO Dr. John W. Mitchell was back in Washington, D.C., representing our industry in a meeting convened by the U.S. Department of Commerce, where he discussed workforce issues in our industry and how to ensure that our businesses have the workforce they need. In this audio interview, he reviews his concerns and solutions on workforce development.
Sentiment among electronics manufacturers remains positive, despite minor setbacks during January, according to IPC’s February Sentiment of the Global Electronics Manufacturing Supply Chain Report.
