Technical Presentation:

This webinar will go over the trends that are within the electronics industry that are driving the further penetration and expansion of Ruggedization technologies. These future looking trends will be supported by current real work impacts; where the lack of proper Ruggedization have led to failure. Along with an overall understanding of what Ruggedization is, why these processes are done, where these skills are used as well as the value proposition to be understood. These concepts will be further supported by a high-level review of the upstream processes that are needed as well as process controls that are empowered.
