68 PCB007 MAGAZINE I AUGUST 2021 times test points are le as an aerthought and squeezed/pushed into a design aer PCB lay- out is "complete," signal integrity analysis is "done," and all but the final design review re- mains. Now, let's see what we can do to effec- tively place test points in our CCAs. Key Tronic Reports Results for Q3 Fiscal Year 2021, New Program Win E Key Tronic Corporation, a provider of elec- tronic manufacturing services, announced its results for the quarter ended April 3, 2021.

Coalition Calls on Congress to Invest in Domestic Semiconductor Manufacturing, Research, Design E e Semiconductor Industry Association— along with a broad coalition of 19 other tech, auto, medical, defense, and other business and labor groups—in a letter urged Congress to en- act funding for the semiconductor manufac- turing, research, and design initiatives autho- rized in the "Creating Helpful Incentives for the Production of Semiconductors" (CHIPS) for America Act. Mars Rover Mission Only Just Beginning One Year After its Launch E Of all the exciting aspects a space mission en- tails for a planetary scientist who makes a liv- ing studying the outer limits, it's still the launch from ground zero that gets Briony Horgan's heart-pounding the most.
