The Future of Rapid Prototyping of Electronics: A Quick Turn CM on Your Desktop
Low volume electronic hardware manufacturing is poised to follow the path paved by 3-D printing over the last five years. Desktop circuit board printers can now turn out PCBs previously the sole domain of capital intensive processes. Table top pick-and-place machines can now perform the sophisticated computer vision and delicate mechanical operations once limited to large industrial equipment. These advances are tightening iteration cycles and speeding hardware development. This panel of leaders in desktop electronics manufacturing will discuss their current direction, challenges to overcome, and what’s on the horizon.
