ExpressPCB Now Offers Electrical Test Option for PCB OrdersDecember 4, 2018 | ExpressPCB

ExpressPCB has announced the addition of Electrical Test as an option for PCB customers in our latest versions of both ExpressPCB Classic and Plus.
As project timelines shorten, and design parameters get tighter, the additional validation created by electrical test can keep you on your timeline and on budget.
“Our customers have asked for the option to add Electrical Test, and we are happy to now provide the peace of mind that your boards will match the design files as submitted. This allows a seamless flow of the PCBs straight to assembly, further streamlining your time from design to finished product,” said Michael Hebda, ExpressPCB product manager.
ExpressPCB continues to add features and services that allow design engineers to be as efficient as possible. We help bring your ideas to life with free CAD Software, coupled with the highest quality, lowest manufacturing costs possible. Time is money, and reducing design cycles and validation time can have a huge impact on your project.
One of my great joys as a grandfather of eight is spending time with them at the park. It doesn't take too long until I'm getting stuck on a slide that is too small for me or on the seesaw, with me on one side and them trying to lift me. At that point, they learn some harsh lessons in physics and how heavy Grandpa really is. A seesaw is a relatively simple device, but it’s a great way to explain a rather complex concept in PCB design: design tradeoffs. Each decision made throughout a design comes with inherent pros and cons.
Spirit AeroSystems, Inc. announced the grand opening of its Engineering Design Center in Subang, Malaysia, that expands the company’s global engineering capabilities, during opening day of the 2024 Singapore Air Show.
It’s been another busy week in the industry. We lost another old friend last week. The EIPC show happened, and Pete Starkey provided us with complete and compelling show coverage, from start to finish. Recently, we posed the question, “When is it time to introduce embedded components into your PCB design?” which was asked and answered by design aficionado Kris Moyers in the latest issue of Design007 Magazine. We are proud to be a part of the exciting Global Insights weekly newsletter, which Nolan Johnson and Brian Knier explored in their interview, and we rounded out the week with some big merger news. Here are my picks for the past week’s must-read news items.
