Free PCB Design Decision Tool: “Make vs Buy” Worksheet


Reading time ( words)

White Knight PCB, a division of Quarter Century Design, introduced today a new PCB design decision tool—a PCB “Make vs Buy” worksheet. Ideal for product managers, design engineers, and buyers alike, the White Knight “Make vs Buy” PCB worksheet poses 15 questions along with varying scenarios reflecting important PCB design criteria.

Numerical scoring values are suggested for each of the 15 questions. Once the “Make vs Buy” worksheet is completed, the 15 scores are totaled. Their sum (score) is then compared to predetermined scores for 5 “Make vs Buy” recommendations. These recommendations will help managers, engineers, and buyers make important outsourcing “Make vs Buy” decisions.

To request a free PCB design “Make vs Buy” worksheet, visit www.WhiteKnightPCB.com or contact Steve Stoehr at 937-434-5127, ext. 109 or info@WhiteKnightPCB.com.

We’re in the middle of show season, and it certainly “shows.” Thank you very much. I’m here all week. Don’t forget to tip your wait staff. This week, we published a variety of articles, columns, and news items, and much of it centered on trade shows. Technical Editor Dan Feinberg brings us a report from CES 2023. IPC announced the winners of the Best Technical Paper awards for IPC APEX EXPO 2023. And we have an interview with Altium’s Rea Callender about the company’s educational efforts at APEX and around the globe.

Altium keeps its eyes on the designers of the future. The company has been working with colleges and universities for years, providing free seats of Altium Designer for the next generation of PCB designers and design engineers. At IPC APEX EXPO 2023, Altium will be providing software for the finalists in the IPC Design Competition just as it did last year. They offer a variety of other educational programs as well, including Upverter classes and a design competition that aims to address environmental change. Here, Rea Callender, Altium’s VP of education, discusses its educational programs and plans for the week of the show.

The Battle of the Boards

01/12/2023 | Patrick Crawford, IPC
Last year, IPC held its first-ever design competition at IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego. PCB designers from around the world competed in a series of heats during the months before the show, culminating in a showdown on the show floor between the top three finalists. Rafal Przeslawski, now with AMD, took home the top prize last year. This year, the competition is back for its sophomore year. I asked Patrick Crawford, manager of design standards and related programs for IPC, to “layout” the details on the design contest, including lessons learned in 2022 and what’s new for the 2023 competition.
