Tempo Talks

PCB design and build best practices

An interactive web series for hardware innovators

Achieving rapid innovation in hardware development is a challenging endeavor. Pushing new technology boundaries under tight schedules with little room for delays puts pressure on hardware development teams and their manufacturing partners to maximize each PCB prototype and NPI cycle. Getting to a reliable new PCB design, efficiently, can be the difference between hitting a product launch date or extending your time-to-market.

At Tempo Talks, we’ve put together a collection of tactical and strategic best practices to help hardware teams bring new PCB designs to market quickly, efficiently, and reliably. Join us to hear directly from our PCB experts, and submit questions ahead of each session to be answered on the live broadcast.

Sign up for one, or both of our first two installments:

Tempo Talk #1: High-leverage PCB design decisions to streamline your build
Available ondemand. Original live date: Thursday, May 27th, 10am PT / 1pm ET

Whether you are designing a first rev proto board, validating existing designs, or ramping for production, your design decisions will be the key driver of manufacturing speed and risk. Watch this ondemand session to learn 5 high-leverage PCB design decisions that can streamline your next build.

Tempo Talk #2: Mastering PCB Validation and Transitioning to Production
Wednesday, June 30th, 10am PT / 1pm ET

Scaling from prototype quantities to production-level volumes introduces new challenges into the PCB development cycle. Hitting specific cost and speed targets, meeting production requirements, and transitioning your design seamlessly from one supplier to the next presents a host of unique tradeoffs and considerations best analyzed early in the build cycle. Join us to discuss how to master PCB validation and transition to production.
