In-House PCB Rapid Prototyping: The Advantages of Additive Manufacturing

The phrase “design, build, test” is something of a mantra among hardware and software developers. For hardware developers, these development cycles require fabrication of multiple prototypes during each build phase, followed by rigorous testing to ensure all design requirements are met. When a prototype doesn’t measure up to the design requirements, redesigns need to be […]

Tips to Reduce PCB Turnaround Time for Prototype Builds

As part of overall product development, creating new designs, sending them out for prototype production, testing prototype builds, and repeating this process consumes a significant amount of time, and it often requires multiple iterations. Time and costs for each prototyping run can add up quickly, and product designers need to carefully decide when to send […]

Considerations for Reducing PCB Prototyping Cost

Some of the greatest ideas start off drawn on the back of a napkin in a coffee shop. When it’s time to take your design off a napkin and create a real product, there are a number of steps to take. First you’ll develop a proof of concept. Then you’ll need to develop a prototype […]

How to Optimize Your Proof of Concept Process Flow

If you’re an engineer or product designer, you’ve probably had a great idea for a new electronic product that you sketched out on the back of a napkin in a crowded restaurant. How can you take this idea and make it a reality? Your first task is to create a proof of concept for your […]

Additive Manufacturing: Advantages and Disadvantages for PCB Prototyping

Ever since its introduction in the 1980s, additive manufacturing has steadily become a more prominent method for producing a variety of increasingly complex and demanding prototypes, as well as finished components and products. All it takes is a CAD model and a modest investment in equipment, and even college students can start prototyping from their […]

3D PCB Printer Readiness Survey: The Results!

Every day we see more and more companies bringing out new products, trying to meet consumers’ ever-growing demands for innovation. Companies that are involved in electronics manufacturing and design typically outsource production, are investing significant capital, and experiencing long turnaround times with PCB prototypes. We see this now confirmed by the Printer Readiness Survey. Take a […]
