Energetic and always looking for inspiration, Wally loves riding his Triumph motorcycle, running, and being in his kayak. In his downtime, he can also be found contemplating life over a cup of coffee early in the morning before anyone else in the house is up.

I have yet to meet an engineer who enjoys seeing costs pile up during the design and development process. And unexpected costs are definitely unwelcome visitors in the drive for product commercialization. If you’d like some new, actionable ideas for getting a new product to market quickly and without those unexpected, expensive guests, here’s a
In the second installment of our video series on conflict minerals, I discuss industry challenges and the effectiveness of the Dodd Frank legislation. Regulating the origin of raw materials is easier said than done. While it has good intentions, the Dodd Frank Act is flawed and presents significant compliance barriers for electronics manufacturers. This is
