Today, the entire world is abuzz with the Internet of Things (IoT) and smart, connected products. These interconnected trends are affecting practically every industry, transforming business models, and impacting almost every phase of a product’s lifecycle.
At the center of these offerings sit circuit boards and the software that runs on them. Together, they act as the brain of the smart, connected product. They process sensor data. They send signals to actuated components. They communicate with IoT platforms.
Developing modern circuit boards, however, is no simple task for an engineer. In fact, it requires tight coordination between the electrical engineer and mechanical engineer on several fronts. We’ll be exploring those activities in this post.
