Data security is now a business imperative. Whether your security plans are defensive (to repel hackers and eliminate data leaks), evolutionary (to support digital factories and industrial automation), or competitive (certifications and new capabilities), you can be either reactive or proactive. In either case, you will most certainly be responding to data security in the near future—whether you like it or not.
In the July issue of SMT007 Magazine, we look at the three main data security initiatives currently under way and ask, “Can this be accomplished affordably?”

For PCB and assembly manufacturers, test engineering has become a critical factor in enhancing the profitability of new product introductions (NPIs). Given the trend toward high-mix, low-volume production, the journey from design data to an automated PCB testing program must be quicker and more efficient than ever before. In this article, we will discuss how to optimize the efficiency of the test engineering process in accordance with these new market realities.
