Bringing Rapid Prototyping In-House
Productivity. Innovation. Time to market. Day to day, year over year, businesses are forced to make critical R.O.I.-related decisions that impact the future and the bottom line. For a growing number of electronics manufacturers, many of those decisions revolve around whether a function should be performed by an outside contractor or kept in-house. But for many companies in the RF/microwave industry this decision is often concerned with continuing to employ an outside printed-circuit-board (PCB) fabricator for prototype PCBs, or to make a $10,000 to $100,000 investment in an in-house, rapid PCB prototyping machine that may represent a key competitive advantage.
Securing Capital Equipment for Engineers
