ACDi Expands PCB Design Team


Reading time ( words)

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."

ACDi believes that its biggest differentiator is its people.

Ted and Misha provide an overview of the Altimade process, how it links designers to fabricators, assembly providers, and component distributors, and they explain how it could pave the way for true design with manufacturing, or DWM.
