I-Connect007 Editor's Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week


Reading time ( words)

Two weeks ago, when it was my turn to pick the top 5, I made a comment about themes. I’m making a stretch here, but this week’s theme is technical education. Three out of the five most popular news items this last week reported on upcoming technical events or publications.

It should come as no surprise that our collective interest is turning to technical materials; in a normal year, the industry trade show season would have kicked off this month. But instead of attending trade shows in person, like many school-age kids right now, we’re attending online.

To round out the list, you’ll also find some aerospace/solar news and an update from Insituware, a manufacturer of smart measurement systems.

Next week, Andy Shaughnessy is back with his top five recommendations.

Boeing, Salt River Project Sign Renewable Energy Agreement for Mesa Site
September 11, 2020

In a multi-year agreement between the aircraft manufacturer and the Arizona utility company, Boeing will be a key customer for SRP’s upcoming solar photovoltaic plant. As Beth Schryer, vice president of facilities and asset management at Boeing, says, “It makes sense to take advantage of renewable solar energy at a location that enjoys 295 days of sunshine a year.” I would agree with that.

I-007eBook Review: Thermal Management From a Fabricator’s Perspective
September 15, 2020

Regular readers know that Dan Beaulieu often shares book reviews with us. This time around, Beaulieu discusses The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Thermal Management: A Fabricator’s Perspective, written by Anaya Vardya, founder and CEO of American Standard Circuits. If the amount of attention the review received is any indication, readers see thermal management as a hot topic. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

Things are heating up in the world of PCB design and manufacturing as well. In the past week, we published quite a bit of news—some good, some not so good. Some of the news is mixed, as we see with the EMS industry shipments rising YOY in April, but falling from the previous month. It’s nice to see NASA investing in American small businesses, but they didn’t really have a choice, did they?
