                              Construction workers on computer board
                              Sometimes your feelings toward your manufacturer may resemble your feelings towards any ex-girlfriends. Especially when they tell you that your boards have a <50% yield. At that point, you may feel like replying with some choice words. Talking is still the answer, just not that kind. Having a discussion with your manufacturer on the front end will reduce manufacturing defects and fabrication costs.

                              Getting an FCC certification is an important (and legally required) step for IoT systems and other products that transmit and receive data. Choosing the right lab makes a huge difference in the ease of your certification process.
                               Li-ion 18650 size industrial high current batteries
                              Lithium Ion batteries provide high performance and fast recharging, making them ideal for electric vehicles. However, their cost has always been a barrier to adoption in the world of electric vehicles. Tesla has sidestepped this issue by adopting a highly scalable modular approach. Every battery package they construct is made out of hundreds of one single standard cell. Tesla is taking their battery production in-house, constructing the Gigafactory to build this one battery unit in high volumes. Through this simplified approach, they’ve been able to not only bring better battery technology to electric vehicles but have also vertically integrated their manufacturing.
                              3D Printer
                              It’s no surprise that you hate waiting for prototypes. In the time it takes for the test board to arrive you could probably invent a new method for fabricating prototypes. Lucky for you, someone already came up with a new method. New 3D printers use nanoparticle technology to suspend metals in ink (I don’t know how this works, so don’t ask) in order to print conductive layers. Just like a normal 3D printer, they can also print layers of plastic or other materials to form a substrate. 3D printing can streamline the design process, build functional prototypes, and optimize designs. All for less money.

                              Counterfeit electronics are components that are fakes or relabelled as a higher quality product and sold to unwitting customers. They can wreak havoc with your designs, security, budget, and schedule. Read on to learn how to product yourself and your products.
                              Flexible circuit on PCB
                              The Internet of Things is a new category of exciting gadgets and appliances transforming the consumer market. However, developing that smartwatch isn’t as easy as putting it on. PCB designers are encountering unique challenges when developing powerful hardware solutions for these products. These PCB’s have to pack performance into a small space while preserving reliability and product budget. Thankfully, recent improvements to an oft-overlooked category of PCB’s have turned the tables on that challenge. Flexible PCB’s have emerged as the best strategy for designers on Internet-of-Things projects.
