8 PCB007 MAGAZINE I FEBRUARY 2020 I'm writing this column on the heels of IPC APEX EXPO 2020. When we chose "The Ben- efits of Going Digital" as the theme for Febru- ary, we expected to find breaking news at the show; we were not disappointed. A few months ago, I treated myself to a brand-new bathroom scale. This thing is fan- cy; it not only measures my weight, but it also uses bio-impedance to return much more de- tailed information, including body fat percent- age, bone mass, protein levels, body water, metabolic rate, muscle mass, and more. More- over, my scale now connects to my smart- phone via Bluetooth and delivers all this data to an app. There are two levels of detail to the app. In one view, I can review the raw numbers for each piece of health information captured. This is useful, but its use is also rather lim- ited in that, unless you know how to interpret the numbers, they're meaningless, or worse, misleading. I certainly don't hold a degree in Nolan's Notes by Nolan Johnson, I-CONNECT007 The Benefits of Going Digital
