The Editor of SMTTDAY recently caught up with our CEO, David Kenyon, and Vice President of Engineering, Frederick Miller.
Month: April 2021
Hello all – I hope this message finds you well. We certainly live in interesting times. After 2020, many thought the variability and chaos would die down, but here we sit in 2021 in the middle of what industry insiders call “Chipageddon” where capacity is at an absolute premium, demand is going through the roof, and lead times are pushing out towards the better part of a calendar year. With that said, our company is growing rapidly and we continue to add resource and expand in different places. We are excited to announce a new partnership with a Taiwan-based distribution partner, ATEChip. Our efforts in the region expand with the introduction of our new designs this year, with numerous parts still on the way (Rainier, Kilauea). Later this year we are looking to make other new product announcements, and are exploring lots of disruptive technology to assist our customers in testing the next generation of semiconductors.
As we move towards the back half of this year, we plan to grow our sales and marketing efforts. Most of all, we are hopeful to visit many of our customers in person – travel and COVID permitting.
I hope to see you in person, in 2021!
