Fall Trade Shows featuring Ciqada and Mars International

Fall is a popular time for trade shows, and ciqada and Mars International are hitting the road.

First up, we’re heading to Chicago, for the WEFTEC show, which runs from October 2 to October 4. After that, we’ll be in Orlando, which hosts this year’s International Pool | Spa | Patio Expo in Orlando from November 1 through 3.

Ciqada provides design expertise and services using our portfolio of proven technologies to help businesses develop, commercialize, and manage IoT products. We have developed several IoT applications in the water management industry as well as pool and spa automation.


Is your IoT Product Safe? Identifying Critical Software Security Flaws – Part 1

In our recent ciqada white paper, we outlined ten critical areas where security issues can impact the safety of your IoT systems. We will re-cap this information in four articles, each of which will focus on two to three elements that should be considered to help protect your IoT enabled devices and systems.

In this article, we will talk about injection flaws along with broken authentication and management.


The Benefits of Mold Flow Analysis

In this week’s blog post, we’ll be discussing mold flow analysis, and why it’s important to plastic injection molding design projects.

Mold flow analysis (or MFA) uses software to create a simulation of plastic flow, allowing manufacturers to enhance the design of their mold and create a better product.

By conducting mold flow analysis, manufacturers can get a glimpse into how the material they are using will fill the cavity of a mold, and spot possible problems. Creating a virtual version of the mold before the physical cutting begins allows you to make changes and save on production costs.

Optimizing Printed Circuit Board Assembly Design through Collaboration

While innovations in design and manufacturing have helped lower the cost of producing printed circuit boards, the price of creating a PCBA can be driven even lower through cross-functional collaboration.

In this article, we’ll look at some effective cross-functional collaboration tactics.
