Ventec is pleased to announce that it has entered into a global strategic alliance with leading interconnect solutions provider, BizLink Holding Inc., and Footprintku Inc., an online EDA library and digital transformation services provider for electronic components. This alliance is formed to provide a solution that boosts product development process efficiency and shortens development and time-to-market.

BizLink has long been a supplier of key components to the IT industry, including connectors and cables. The company is experienced in new product introduction (NPI) as well as in system integration, manufacturing, and in assembly.

BizLink’s Chairman, Roger Liang, said, "For the design of electronic products, the trend is for thinner, lighter, and aesthetically pleasing products whilst maintaining functionality and compatibility. This has prompted the demand for rapid and frequent updates of components and product styles. The ability to quickly develop products to respond to market changes has become the key to success."

Ventec International’s Chairman, Tony Lau, pointed out, "What the market needs is a platform that integrates the advantages of upstream components, mid-section design, and back-end manufacturing. The creation of such a platform, we knew, would greatly help accelerate industrial innovation." Footprintku Inc.’s Chairman, YC Hwang, continued, "In response, we propose a cloud platform using the exclusive AI and digital transformation technology of Footprintku.com to integrate the resources of all three companies. The result is a one-stop service, making it possible for product developers to quickly and efficiently find the best components and quality suppliers for their product R&D and design change stages."

This alliance is built upon Footprintku’s cloud database for electronic components as well as BizLink’s solutions and Ventec International’s materials. It integrates the capabilities of new product introduction (NPI), design services (ODM), and manufacturing assembly (EMS). This alliance will reduce the cost of and time in searching for electronic components for product developers. Furthermore, it will accelerate product evolution and facilitate industrial innovation by connecting highly flexible and customized electronic industry supply chain partners.

The alliance was officially announced at a press conference held at the Grand Hyatt Taipei on February 26, 2021.

The big news in the industry this week was the new bill introduced to the U.S. Congress in support of the PCB manufacturing industry. The Supporting American Printed Circuit Boards Act of 2022, which was introduced by Reps. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) and Blake Moore (R-UT), incentivizes “purchases of domestically produced PCBs as well as industry investments in factories, equipment, workforce training, and research and development.” The bill is a PCB-oriented complement to the semiconductor-oriented CHIPS Act of 2021.
