Over the Thanksgiving weekend, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced his company’s plans to develop quadcopter drones that will be able to deliver packages to online shoppers within 30 minutes by as early as 2015. Called Amazon Prime Air,this service offers the potential to change the way the world does business. However, what does this mean for printed circuit board designers and manufacturers? The first hurdle for Amazon to clear is to get approval from the federal government to launch the service. In addition, drones are open to a number of interfering agents that may work to derail the project. Hacking is just one way that this service can come under attack, and a compromised drone could have lasting effects on a customer and Amazon itself in terms of lost assets and money.
Enhancing Functionality of Your Printed Circuit Board
In order to get the most out of a printed circuit board and get it ready for such applications as drones, designers and manufacturers must work together. High quality materials paired with flawless designs will allow components to be as efficient as possible. When you are in the process of designing your PCBs, you want to work with a manufacturer that has a proven track record of quality and reliability so that you know your circuit boards will work as expected. To get started, contact a PCB expert at Advanced Circuits to discuss your needs and see what steps to take in order to get your goals accomplished. Then design your PCBs and place an order so that you get the circuit boards you need without delay.
