In the data transmission industry, wire assemblies are used as the primary way to send a signal from one device to another. Generally, this signal goes through a copper wire. Copper wiring transmits data through electrical signals, or pulses. This is an old but trusty method that has been used for decades. With the introduction of Fiber Optic cabling in the 1970s, and its subsequent rapid growth, copper wiring is looking old and dated.

One of the many ways Circuit Assembly supplies unique skills across the globe is through supporting “End of Life” (EOL) programs. In the electro-mechanical industry, parts are designed and produced for a certain amount of time. Large manufacturers will continue to build and sell their product to the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) so long as there is sufficient demand. If an OEM’s usage declines, it can cause the manufacturer to end that particular product line.
The EOL forces the OEM to rush to fulfill the needs of a program that has, many times, historically sustained for years. Our customers must be able to fulfill their program promptly, with high-quality defect free parts to provide a smooth transition and NO interruption in production.
