Manufacturing Day Tour – October 6, 2017
These notes and observations were made by a member of our Internet Marketing support team, Amber Shaw, who attended our event to capture ideas and images of the event. Amber describes her impressions after a great tour from PDS.
Manufacturing Day is an event recognized across the country on the first Friday in October. This year the day was on October 6th and I had the opportunity to visit Power Design Systems in San Jose California. PDS celebrated Manufacturing Day by opening its doors for a rare tour of the company, and its processes.

Interview with Tuan Tran, VP of Sales
Power Design Services (PDS) recently hosted our first Manufacturing Day on October 6,2017. Local business groups, elected officials and others were invited to see our newly updated facilities, production capabilities, and meet our team.
The following is an interview with Tuan Tran, VP of Sales for Power Design Services. He was asked about PDS, its growth, customer focus and the company’s future.
High Quality Solutions to Reduce Manufacturing Cost and Time
Flex and rigid flex circuits have become increasingly popular in the high-density electronics industry for their cost-saving three-dimensional configurations. The ability to build circuitry to fit the device instead of the other way around, offers significant advantages for complex aerospace, military, and medical device applications. Power Design Services works closely with clients on their new product development projects. Over the years, we have been
Power Design Services (PDS) is a proud sponsor of San Jose State University (SJSU) electric car racing team. Spartan Racing Electric (SRE) is comprised of SJSU students from various backgrounds. The competition team is passionate about alternate energy technology and developing a competitive racing vehicle in a new growing field of electric drive.
Power Design Services Participating in National Manufacturing Day
Experience Our World-Class PCB Assembly and Testing Services
Power Design Services is proud to announce its participation in National Manufacturing Day. As part of the initiative to inspire the next generation of manufacturers, we will open our doors on October 6 to give participants a tour of our world-class circuit board assembly facility in San Jose. Equipped with state-of-the-art PCB fabrication and testing equipment, we are preferred contract manufacturers for complex medical devices, aerospace components,
If there is one way to guarantee world-class results in the electronics industry, it’s by ensuring factory floor technicians enjoy consistent, regular training. Regular training ensures that assembly line technicians use standardized methods, generating efficiencies and improving the assembly process.
PCB suppliers in the automotive space are vastly accelerating their time to market by using automated optical inspection (AOI) systems during PCB assembly. However, this next-generation technique is not limited in scope to the automotive industry – it has powerful implications for the entire PCB industry.
High Quality Solutions to Reduce Manufacturing Costs and Time
Consistent quality and better customer service from local companies have resulted in hundreds of manufacturers reshoring their PCB assembly services. With world class technology and lean processes, contract manufacturers like Power Design Services have closed the gap on pricing, which was the main reason for offshoring.
Prototype PCB assembly is a unique business in many ways. A design-heavy process, it hinges on the cusp between tech innovation and heavy industry. Additionally, obstacles common to PCB assembly manufacturers are virtually unheard of in other industries. These factors combine to make customer feedback very important for consistent success on PCB prototyping projects.
The Case of Night Shifts vs. Additional Production Lines for PCB Assembly Efficiency
For a small PCB prototyping business intent on serving some of the best-known and most respected tech brands on the planet, quick turnaround is more than a marketing gimmick – it’s a promise. PCB prototype assembly is by no means a simple activity, and small, time-consuming hang-ups can turn into lost orders and angry customers in an industry where 48-hour turnarounds are the norm.
