In a recent Design007 Survey, we asked the following question: Q. What is the most important feedback that you receive after your board is manufactured?
Here are just a few of the answers, edited slightly for clarity.
Scott McCurdy, Freedom CAD: We run all of our designs through Valor NPI, so we don’t have many problems get back to us. But more feedback from our customers would be helpful. We always like to hear when a customer is happy and the board worked the first time.
Dwain Strang, ZIN Technologies: What came up at first article checkout? How did everything go together? Was testing OK, and did it pass?
Alex Forbes, Rakon: That it works! Feedback from the manufacturer and the assembler.
