The Electronics Manufacturers Association of Oregon is excited to announce the highly anticipated 20th edition of the NW Electronics Design & Manufacturing Expo (NEDME). Taking place on October 18th, this event brings together industry professionals to explore the latest trends and innovations in electronics manufacturing.
NEDME’s technical sessions aim to give attendees valuable information from industry experts across a wide range of topics. This year, Matthias Zapatka of INGUN USA will give an introduction to RF and high current probing solutions for production line testing.
This year, we’re happy to welcome a new Gold Sponsor, Plural Additive Manufacturing. We spoke with Ed Israel, one of the co-founders of Plural, about the electronics industry and his hopes for the show.
The annual Northwest Electronics Design and Manufacturing Expo wouldn’t be possible without our excellent sponsors. This year, we’re very pleased to have Adapt Electronics as one of our Gold Sponsors. We caught up with Gary Hilgeman of Adapt, and he shared some of his thoughts with us.
NEDME’s technical sessions aim to give attendees valuable information from industry experts across a wide range of topics. This year, Diana Wojcik of Waddell and Reed will be speaking on “Financial Planning Strategies for Business Owners,” and she shared a few of her insights with us in advance of her presentation.
We’re very lucky to have Duane Benson among this year’s NEDME technical presenters. Duane is the Marketing Manager at Screaming Circuits, and will be giving two presentations: “Marketing Strategies for Electronic Firms” and “PCB Design and Layout For More Reliable Assembly.” Duane shared some of his thoughts with us, and we’re glad to be able to share them with you.
This year’s Northwest Electronics Design and Manufacturing Expo on October 7 will feature over 70 exhibitors, along with technical presentations, a keynote address, and a networking reception. We spoke with Meredith Jaeger of Edge Electronics, one of this year’s exhibitors and a certified Women’s Business Enterprise, and she was kind enough to share some of her perspectives with us.
We have a number of exciting technical sessions planned for this year’s show, including a talk by Greg Hutchins and Ed Perkins of CERM on “Preparing for New ISO 9001 Risk Based Thinking.”
