Lately, numerous companies have begun reassessing their global value chains and moving electronics production closer to home.
We’ll provide you with an introduction to each step and explain its significance in the larger PCB manufacturing and assembly process.
In the coming years, reshoring may be the key to maintaining the US economy's stability.
No matter what type of business you run, the following eight tactics will help reduce electronic supply chain risk today and into the future.
The cost of shipping containers by maritime freight increased by 500% from pre-pandemic levels and the cost of shipping bulk commodities by sea tripled.
We'll delve deeper into the supply chain challenges facing electronics companies and explore the impact on the quality outcomes of their products.
The warehousing crunch has put a strain on electronics companies that rely on quick delivery of electronic components or PCBAs, especially from overseas.
Reshoring offers a solution to persistent problems of instability, lending companies the resilience needed to succeed now and into the future.
Transportation expenses, geopolitical factors, and the narrowing labor cost have caused companies to consider moving operations to North America.
As a result of the recently passed CHIPS Act, a new generation of domestic chip factories will flourish from New York to Texas.
With technological advances and changing market trends, there has been a growing movement towards silicon carbide (SiC) and system-on-a-chip (SoC) designs.
Even though the CHIPS Act will funnel tens of billions of dollars into semiconductor factory construction, new domestic fabs won’t solve every problem.
Despite the challenges posed by global supply chains, sales of new robots still grew slightly at 0.5%, with 384,000 units shipped globally in 2020.
Rigid-flex PCBs use both rigid and flexible substrates, enabling the electronic engineer to connect multiple layers of flexible and printed subcircuits.
Nearshoring to Mexico is an ideal choice for most North-American companies that need volume PCBA manufacturing.
Exports from mainland China, Japan, and South Korea have softened in recent years. Global electronics exports from these countries showed no growth.
It is crucial to understand the differences between forward bias and reverse bias operations to choose the best diode for a particular application.
High-speed RF signals, for use in radios, need special attention to higher-order electrical engineering principles.
Tiny Machine Learning combines reduced and optimized machine learning applications that require hardware, system, and software components.
Except for uncertainty, almost nothing is guaranteed in 2023. Here’s what we do know.
In times of economic uncertainty, it is more important than ever for OEMs to adopt resilient practices to weather the coming storm.
Each type of waste can inflate business expenses and make a negative impact on your company’s environmental, social, and governance (ESG) reputation.
The global semiconductor industry is poised for a decade of expansion and is expected to be worth $1 trillion by 2030, up from $600 billion in 2021.
