Inside the Hardware: Manufacturing Electronics

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

You are ready to move forward with the electronics on your device, but to whom do you turn once your prototype is done? How long does the “design for manufacturing” engineering process take even before your board is manufactured? Should you go immediately to China, or manufacture locally? Meet local experts in advanced electronics development, manufacturing, and overseas management and hear what they have to say about the process.
