Solution –Develop the Tools and Processes to Perform Design Validation To accomplish this, El-Com is shifting the mindset of our engineers and technical team to not only provide a cost-estimate on a prospective interconnect, but to also perform a design validation concurrently. We have found this approach to be immensely valuable and appreciated by our customers and we hope to continue to impact the industry in a positive way. As a result, our customers’ interconnect designers can better focus on the purpose of the interconnect, which is to effectively connect a multitude of sub-systems in a system, rather than waste their time troubleshooting and upgrading existing designs as a result of mistakes that could have been identified earlier in the design cycle. This is how El-Com envisions the future of Interconnects. Contact us if you agree and want to consider participating in designing and creating this enhanced future of the electronic interconnect industry.
