EMS providers are missing an opportunity to openly address supply chain problems Blog 5/12/2003 Post a comment Late last month, the Electronic Components, Assemblies & Materials Association (ECA) invited several dozen EMS providers to participate in an industry forum aimed at fostering better communication among contract manufacturers. The forum had two goals: to identify inefficiencies within the EMS sector that have compounded supply chain problems for the global electronics market; and to form an industry body that would meet period-ically to draft remedies for these problems.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
