The January 2018 issue of Design007 Magazine has published and is now available for download.
To ring in the new year, we’ve made a few changes to our magazines. You may have noticed that our name has changed from The PCB Design Magazine to Design007 Magazine. Not only did we update our magazine’s name, but we also refreshed the interior pages of the publication. As an I-Connect007 publication, Design007 Magazine fits nicely with our other publications, which also carry through with the naming convention starting this month: SMT007 Magazine and PCB007 Magazine. We hope you enjoy the fresh new look.
Check it all out this month in Design007 Magazine, now on the virtual newsstand and available for delivery in your e-mailbox each month by subscribing here.
You can also download the pdf version here for future reference.
