Distributors Hone In On Alternative Energy Markets
As distributors sharpen their focus on energy markets, many are playing up traditional strengths in IP&E while branching out into new and complementary solutions designed to meet engineers’ growing needs.
I have designed many early-stage proof-of-concept (POC) circuits, and observed many others do the same thing. It seems that there is often a huge disconnect between clients and engineers, though, when it comes to the goals of a POC design. In simple terms, an engineer worth his salt will overdesign an early POC circuit. This is because Murphy’s law always applies, and POCs are about overcoming unknowns. By overdesigning the circuit, one is able to prove the client’s product POC can be made to work, and quickly....More
