Merely survive or dominate?
IPC
The business world is often compared to a jungle. In the wild, there is survival and death. Surviving means doing the bare minimum to get by, accepting the mantra of "good enough" as long as you make it through the night. But why let yourself be anything less than the best? Why not push yourself to evolve?

    Accounting for Component Overage in SMT Assembly
    Advanced Assembly
    Commissioning a PCB assembler to build your prototype boards is an efficient way to save time and money, as well as avoid frustration. However, it’s crucial to take component overages into consideration to ensure your project is delivered on-time. This means you must purchase additional parts to account for any losses that occur, especially with smaller components such as 0603, 0402, and 0201-sized capacitors, resistors and inductors.

    Anything portable needs a battery. We wouldn’t have the cellphones, laptops or other consumer electronic gadgets we use daily without battery technology — the research is ubiquitous. This is especially true of lithium-ion batteries. The face of battery research has changed since the 1980s where it was considered a “dirty science” and researchers would mix carbon and other elements in their laboratories.
