I’ve just returned from a whistle-stop, two week trip to South East Asia. I’d heard recently that investments in China are leading to more complex products being produced, so as someone focused on high-speed design I was interested to see for myself how this is playing out in Asia as a whole; the world’s largest PCB manufacturing region.
Generating quotes for manufacturing can be a complicated and cumbersome process. It’s a complaint I’ve heard often across many industries. While precious resources are dedicated to tracking parts, long lead items, part costs vs. labor, etc., the manual process leads to gaps, errors and delays.

Zuken Innovation World Americas 2018 took place recently in San Diego and was record-setting!
