ACDi has hired PCB designer Charles (Chuck) Bird, just one month after hiring design engineer Priya Sherke. Bird was hired as a result of the growth of the electronics and Internet of Things (IoT) industries.
Bird joins ACDi with over 29 years of experience in the industry. The majority of his career has been with Hughes Network Systems, where he started as a technician and was promoted to Designer 2. He is a graduate of Penn Technical Institute as an Associate in Specialized Technology (Electronics), Electrical and Electronics Engineering.
"It's exciting to be part of the ACDi team," said Bird. "I believe my skills in PCB design, manufacturing and product management will be put to good use."

I was recently given the opportunity to write an article for our publication. Being somewhat new to this industry, I figured it would be a good idea to write an introduction on how I got into electronics—specifically the part most people my age don’t give thought to.

The 23rd annual IEEE International Symposium for Design and Technology in Electronic Packaging (SIITME) was held in Constanta, Romania, in October 2017. It attracted more than 190 participants from Romania, and 13 other counties. While there might be some who question the suitability of Romania as a venue for such a conference, the country has a long technological history and has produced some top innovators and pioneers in aviation including Aurel Vlaicu, Traian Vuia, Henri Coanda, who prototyped an early jet aircraft in 1910.

During the last week in April, the 26th Interconnection Techniques in Electronics (TIE) show was held at the Gheorghe Asachi Technical University in Iasi, Romaina, a wonderful hill town not unlike Rome. The event, a convention for the Romanian electronic packaging community, included a series of actions designed to draw smart young students to the electronics industry, which is clearly growing. Participants had only four hours to create this PCB design, which was generated by a team of professionals from Continental Automotive Romania Timisoara.
