Our Thanksgiving Wish


Reading time ( words)

In the United States, the Thanksgiving holiday is a celebration of gratitude and appreciation for the harvest and for the people close to us. In this year of 2020, the spirit of thankfulness seems just a little more important than usual. Thankfulness seems to transcend one day of official observance.

The fourth Thursday of November is when the U.S. officially celebrates Thanksgiving Day and as we take time to observe this holiday, the I-Connect007 team wishes to offer our thanks to you, our global readers and contributors: designers, fabricators, engineers, assemblers, quality and process control gurus, chemists, physicists, supervisors, managers, entrepreneurs, business owners, standards writers, industry experts, and more. You breathe life into the vital, thriving, world-changing electronics industry. You are the real story.

Continue to stay safe and healthy as we conclude 2020, and watch over your loved ones and colleagues so that they stay safe, too. Then, we can all be thankful when we’re able to see each other in person once again.

Best holiday wishes from the entire team at I-Connect007.

The Future Is Electric

04/13/2021 | KJ McCann and Brian Zirlin, Aurora Circuits
Worldwide research and development of the automotive industry began as early as the 17th century and since then has taken several different design paths, with each country forging its own innovative trail and hundreds of prototypes emerging into the market. Vehicles—with steam-powered, electric, and combustion engines—began to play a major role, not only in the Industrial Revolution, but in everyday life. Although many believe that electric vehicles (EVs) are relatively new to the market, they have actually been around since 1832.
