What’s Your Why?

Why do you do what you do?

What inspires you?

Why should I care?

Watch this video clip from Simon Sinek. In it he explains why some leaders, brands, etc attract fanatic followers and others don’t.

So sit back get some coffee and spend the next few minutes with us. Then let us know your why? You can leave it in the comments section. Let others learn from you.

At SelectConnect we believe that the electronics industry is on the verge of its greatest period of innovation ever. That’s why we provide designers and manufactures cutting edge design technologies for electronic devices.

What’s Your Biggest Design Challenge This Year?

I really want to know.

Do you need to make things BIGGER?

Do you need to make things LOUDER?

Probably not.

I curious to hear what you’re struggling with. Leave your biggest design challenge in the comment section.

While you’re thinking, check out this video.

Thanks.

The Perfect Compliment to PCB

How would an LDS part work in conjunction with a pcb?

A very common misconception when looking at LDS is that one can replace a pcb.

LDS is not designed to replace a pcb, in fact it is more to compliment a pcb to bridge the gap between a circuit board, wiring harness and plastic part so you can get 3D.

It’s all about reducing parts. In the example part you have the circuit structure directly on the plastic part. The plastic part is also the mechanical holder for the battery inside and it it becomes the connector of these parts. So you can have multiple systems in one part.

Are you going to make a 32 layer big circuit board or mother board with LDS?

Probably not. It is not designed for this type of stuff. But it can definitely replace complex wiring harnesses for automotive parts. You can eliminate the wiring harness and put the circuit structure right on the plastic part.

You can reduce part counts and definitely reduce weight while increasing reliability.

Keep Your Data Secure

Security Shields

Data security is a growing industry. Intrusions are being made into data devices by putting sensors into them and getting sensitive data out. Devices like:

  • Computers
  • ATMs
  • Point of Sale devices

It’s all about detecting intrusion and the best way to do this is to have some sort of trip wire going throughout your device.

You want to do this with plastic covers. You want to cover the device with very long and thin lines.

LDS is ideal because of the disconnect between the mechanical housing and the electrical circuitry. The two are brought together later in the process with the help of the laser.

Now that you are independent, you can have any kind of artwork and any kind of mechanical device (shape).

And therefore these very challenging patterns that you see in security shields are very easily done with LDS.

And even better they can be easily changed.

Sensor Packaging

Is LDS ideally suited for Senor Packaging?

Yes!

Imagine where sensors go. The are not in the most conspicuous places. They are in hard to reach areas.

We have sensors in brake systems, optical systems, electrical and vision system. We have sensors in some really funny places. These are usually places where we don’t have a lot of room. This is why we want to use the capabilities of LDS.

We want to create a carrier to carry the sensor and connect it to the outside world. An LDS sensor package replaces the wiring harness, connectors and carrier for the sensor itself. So now you can place the senor in these other areas.

Because of LDS we have better technology and systems than we did 10 years ago.

Top 2 Reasons to use LDS in Automotive Applications

The volume issues we have been experiencing are corrected, ENJOY!

Today we have the fifth episode in a series featuring Stephan Schmidt, President of LPKF USA. Stephan and I recently sat down to discuss LDS, where it is utilized today and where it is going in the near future.

I hope you find the conversation as interesting as I did.

Today we talk about Automotive applications, however the benefits can bee seen in any design, regardless of industry.

Costs of LDS

Today we have the fourth episode in a series featuring Stephan Schmidt, President of LPKF USA. Stephan and I recently sat down to discuss LDS, where it is utilized today and where it is going in the near future.

I hope you find the conversation as interesting as I did.

Please turn up your volume for the conversation as the microphone was experiencing some technical difficulties.

Today Stephan answers the questions:

What are the costs associated with LDS?

and

What makes LDS a better solution?
