Hardware Quality Training Classes

This training will teach hardware engineers the basics and the insights about printed circuit design.
The quality of this important part of hardware design is closely linked to the knowledge of the consequencies of a series of decisions.
Having a good understanding under the most complex situations comes after years of trials and failures, each one teaching important details. By attending this training the engineer will be able to save part of this time and the associated cost of reworking during design.
