Building your own PC can be an exhilarating challenge.
Putting together a machine that performs exactly the way you design is a process that takes time and perseverance, but should ultimately be rewarding.
The journey of learning and innovating may even lead to a career in the specialist electronics field.
However, many DIY PC builders start assembling a machine without reviewing all the considerations, tips and guidance. They then encounter a range of problems as they try to move forward in putting their system together. Let’s look at a few common DIY PC mistakes.
Components Don’t Work Together
This seems like the most elemental error someone could ever make, but it is so very common. When thinking about multiple complicated systems, it’s easy to overlook checking that the motherboard is compatible with the CPU. Or checking that items will fit in the Read the full article →
The multi-tiered process an OEM goes through when creating a new product creates a number of challenges for the engineering team.
There may be an overarching idea that guides the design, but many of the minute specifications can hold up development, not to mention the hurdles that follow, such as the acquisition of materials and building of a functional prototype.
Depending on the size of the OEM, having dedicated engineers on staff to take a product from concept to production solely on their own incurs a significant cost. Also, those employees will then have to deal with an industrial distributor in getting past the design step. Why not have that relationship between the OEM and distributor right from the start?
Concept and Design: First Steps to Building a PC with a Distributor
Many industrial electronics distributors have specific services to help in building a PC; ones that can help an OEM business acquire a custom built machine for a niche purpose or Read the full article →
The golden rule for real estate is “location, location, location.” Understanding the inherent benefits to a space that can be utilized for a particular gain could mean the difference between success and failure.
Moving from real estate to industrial computing, knowing the type of space in which your computer will be put together and the type of testing it will undergo has major effects on how well the product will function and be received.
Ordering a computer assembly service from an embedded computing distributor helps cut down on costs for an OEM, but questions also need to be asked about the conditions of the task.
In other words, computer assembly is not something that should be carried out in any ordinary space, especially when considering the rigorous testing for industrial computing. Read the full article →
