Words of Advice


Reading time ( words)

In our recent designer survey, we asked the following question: “What advice would you give an OEM system designer?” Here’s what our EMS experts said.

Jim Pierce, Axiom Electronics: "Push vendors to adapt to newer, more complete technology; find ways to work together to smoothen out transition to better technology offering; and open database structure."

Jon Ashton, Vergent Products: "Listen to your assemblers/operators, and manufacturing engineers/process engineers; and the datasheet isn't always right for your environment or process."

Marc Damman, ADCO Circuits: "Keep it as simple as possible."
