New White Paper Looks at the Pros and Cons of Prototype PCB outsourcing

New White Paper Looks at the Pros and Cons of Prototype PCB outsourcing

 

Producing Printed Circuit Board (PCB) prototypes for evaluation of design before mass production, are a key component of the product development process in electronics manufacturing. While outsourcing to specialist sub-contractors is very popular, it is not always particularly efficient or affordable.  For example, it can take many weeks for the PCB to be ordered, produced and shipped to an overseas vendor and if you need to make changes to the design, it usually means a lot of time and money.

Does Digital Inkjet Printing Rule over Analog for Printed Electronics?

Does Digital Inkjet Printing Rule over Analog for Printed Electronics?Printing today’s printed electronics involves lots of choice -- from printer type to ink formulation, substrates and more.

Two of the most popular printing methods are inkjet digital printing and analog printing, such as screen printing and photolithography. Both digital and analog involve depositing inks -- electrically functional inks – onto a substrate. The result is an active or passive device, such as a thin film transistor or resistor.

How can RFID tags cost 1 cent?

An example of a generic RFID chip

As far back as 2001, we have been watching the RFID industry very keenly and asking ourselves “When will a RFID tag ever cost 5 cents?Imagination turned to reality in 2012 and since then, major stores such as Marks & Spencer have been jumping on board the RFID ship. Near-instant inventory tracking became a reality and out-of-stock situations suddenly became a rare occurrence. Unquestionably, the ROI has been higher than expected and executives on all levels have given themselves a pat on their back for a risk well taken.
