National Instruments

Manufacturer of Computer-Based Measurement and Automation Tools

Manufacturer of Assembly Equipment

Since its inception in 1976, National Instruments has revolutionized the way engineers and scientists work by empowering them with the personal computer. National Instruments develops and manufactures hundreds of integrated software and hardware products, which when combined with standard computers, are used to replace and/or communicate with traditional instrumentation and to monitor and control processes. As the world's leading computer-based measurement and automation supplier, National Instruments is dedicated to producing innovative solutions that help engineers and scientists achieve their goals - faster, better, and well under budget. For applications in research, development, production, test, and in service industries as diverse as telecommunications, automotive, semiconductor, aerospace, electronics, chemical, and pharmaceutical, engineers and scientists choose National Instruments quality and innovation. With our products, they communicate with and control traditional, stand-alone instruments, such as oscilloscopes, waveform generators and multimeters. Using our virtual instrumentation approach, they can also replace these vendor-defined instruments by turning their computer into the instrument or instruments that they need. In industrial settings, our products automate processes in factories and plants around the world. Engineers and scientists also take advantage of our software and hardware to monitor and control a wide range of processes, from refining oil to brewing beer and from manufacturing and testing cell phones to producing steel and paper.

PCB Sourcing Using PCQR 2

Dec 13, 2017 | Al Block, Naji Norder, Chris Joran

In a global market, it is often difficult to determine the best PCB suppliers for your technology needs, while also a chieving the lowest costs for your products. Considering each PCB supplier has their own niche in t erms of equipment, process, and performance, uniform test data from the IPC -9151D Process Capability, Quality, and Relative Reliability (PCQR 2 ) Benchmark Test Standard can help find the right source for the board based on its specific technology requirements. By using a data-based approach to vendor selection, this can remove the subjective nature of sourcing, reduce the need for PCB process experts to map suppliers into technologies, and eliminate irrational sourcing decisions....
