ACD CEO Scott Fillebrown Presents DFA Tips at PCB West
ACD CEO Scott Fillebrown provided interactive presentation with engineers at PCB West.
Santa Clara, CA — ACD's CEO Scott Fillebrown provided an interactive presentation, "Design for High-Reliability Assembly," at the PCB West Conference & Exhibition, which took place on September 25-27, 2012 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, California. The presentation became very interactive with fellow engineers who got tips about both PCB design and the manufacturing of the boards.

Building high-reliability (Class II medical and Class III military and aerospace) products brings an additional layer of documentation and attention to everything from component selection to choice of materials. Furthermore, restrictions on rework and repair place even greater emphasis on "building it right the first time." Mr. Fillebrown also discussed lessons learned from two decades of designing and building high-reliability hardware.

Fillebrown started with ACD after graduating from the University of Texas-Dallas (UTD) and became a stockholder at ACD in January 1995. He has a total tenure with the company of more than 20 years. Scott graduated from UTD in 1989 with a B.S. in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. He currently is responsible for the company?s finance, manufacturing operations and marketing efforts. Scott's outside-of-the-box thinking towards manufacturing has led ACD to win numerous awards for revenue growth and technology innovations.
