Printed Circuit Design & Fab provides a forum to enable design and manufacturing managers, executives and their suppliers to understand and implement techniques, methodologies, processes and technologies that compliment and improve competitiveness in the electronic interconnect industry. Printed Circuit Design & Fab is the result of the fusion of PC FAB and Printed Circuit Design magazines. The lines between design and manufacturing continue to blur and communication between these two areas is critical for product success. For this reason, UP Media Group made the decision to combine these two leading brands into one dynamic product. The entire, unduplicated subscriber bases from both PC FABs and Printed Circuit Designs subscription files were used to create the 37,300 circulation database of PCD&M. Likewise, the editorial product combines the best of both disciplines and, for the first time, provides experts in the electronic interconnect industry with one resource for all of their technical and market needs. The first issue of Printed Circuit Design & Fab premiered in April 2003.
