Posted by Circuit Assembly on 6/3/19 6:02 AM

 


You have a few options in setting up a local area network (LAN) in an office or residence. You can focus on a wired ethernet-connected network or a wireless network.

End of Life Parts Live Again with Circuit Assembly Design and Manufacturing

Posted by Moneeb Afzal on 4/23/19 9:27 AM

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.
