Standard of Excellence: The Perfect PCB Fab—A Vision for Five Years Ahead

11/29/2023 | Anaya Vardya -- Column: Standard of Excellence
To sustain a standard of excellence, it’s equally important to look at both what we’re doing today as well as what we’ll do in the future. In other words, plan ahead. In that spirit, I thought it would be prudent to peek into the future and talk about what a printed circuit board fabrication facility with a “standard of excellence” will look like five years from now.

Material Insight: A Conversation with Congressman Blake Moore

11/28/2023 | Preeya Kuray -- Column: Material Insight
On May 11, 2023, Reps. Blake Moore (R-UT) and Anna Eshoo (D-CA) introduced the Protecting Circuit Boards and Substrates (PCB) Act to Congress. In October, I had the great pleasure of discussing the bipartisan Protecting Circuit Boards and Substrates Act with Congressman Moore, who represents Utah’s First Congressional District. He shared his thoughts on how supporting and investing in the domestic PCB industry can help bolster American security.

Facing the Future: Engaging a New Generation

11/20/2023 | Aidan Salvi -- Column: Facing the Future
For some time now, many of us just assumed that robots would take over our jobs, and then, well, what would happen next? But what we’ve found is that one of, if not the best, aspects of a factory is the cooperation between humans and automation. Particularly with Factory 5.0 and its philosophy of “cobots” (the cooperation between humans and robots), that prospective of robots taking over has changed drastically. For the first-time, people are respected as an integral part of the manufacturing process. Humans are the “head” and robots are the “hands,” as together we take part in this new and exciting manufacturing process.

Productronica 2023: Day 2 Review

11/16/2023 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
After a rainy Tuesday for the start of productronica, we had a brief respite on Wednesday morning, so we were able to walk from the U-bahn to the west entrance of Messe München without getting wet. We were accompanied by a horde of eager exhibition attendees mobbing the turnstiles to get into what promised to be an even livelier second day of the show. Yes, productronica has come back to life after COVID and re-established its identity as a premier event with more than 1,300 exhibitors from 45 countries, together with an exclusive supporting program.

Elementary, Mr. Watson: William of Ockham Meets Printed Circuit Boards

11/16/2023 | John Watson -- Column: Elementary, Mr. Watson
William of Ockham was a significant figure in medieval philosophy who lived from 1285 to 1347 and was an English Franciscan friar, philosopher, and theologian. William of Ockham is most famously known for formulating the principle of Occam's Razor, also known as the principle of parsimony. In simple terms, Occam's Razor is a problem-solving rule suggesting that when you have multiple possible explanations, the simplest one is usually the best. The most straightforward solution that fits all the facts without adding extra assumptions or complications.
