Nancy Jaster is the manager of design process at IPC—and she has every right to be. As part of the technical staff team, she works directly with many IPC standards committees to support the industry, particularly those related to DFM and DFX guidelines, as well as those involved in data transfer. With 28 years’ experience in the industry—10 years in manufacturing and 18 years in design—she understands clearly what people need on the factory floor.
In an interview with I-Connect007, she discusses the latest developments in the Connected Factory Initiative (CFX), the machine data interface standard that would enable manufacturers, equipment, device and software suppliers to achieve Industry 4.0 benefits, and CFX demos at IPC APEX EXPO 2018.

I recently had the opportunity to chat with the new director of sales and marketing at Eagle Electronics, Andy D’Agostino. I’ve visited Eagle before; they are endlessly busy, with good things going on, so I was happy when I learned that Brett McCoy was now COO and another fellow had taken over some of the sales and marketing activities. Andy comes with a wealth of experience and seems to have settled in nicely.
