I am "Ata Syed" a Canadian engineer specializing in the PCB industry with over 20+ years of experience. I have worked for some of the biggest PCB companies in the world DDI/Viasystems/TTM as an engineer. And I have also worked in China for 3 years in a mass-production factory.

I have taught PCB to many engineers and continue to do so to this date. I train new engineers and experienced engineers as CAM Engineers and as Product engineers in the PCB manufacturing field.

Currently, I work as a Field Application Engineer for a Canadian company specializing in FPC manufacturing (Flexible Printed Circuits). My job is to represent the company in trade shows all over North America and engage customers early on in the design stage of FPC to help and guide them into making a successful FPC from the beginning.
