Leading interconnect solutions provider, BizLink Holding Inc., announces that it has entered into a global strategic alliance with major substrate material manufacturer Ventec International 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, Lao Kai-Lu, 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, Y.C. Hwang, continued, “In response, we proposed 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 together highly flexible and customized electronic industry supply chain partners.

  • Startup company Footprintku builds EDA cloud management platform

    Jan 3,2019

    Before the production of any electronic product, they must go through the Electronic Design Automation Process (EDA). In order to start designing new products, they must first go through a lengthy "pure manual" electronic component database. This results in excess time spent, wasted resources, and mistakes/errors. Founder and Chairman of the board, Yi-Chieng Huang, recalls this industry inconvenience, "This kind of thing can be done using a program. Why do you have to spend manpower and time to operate one by one?" At the time, Hwang faced a shortage of talents, and an abundance of doubts from CEO, and co-founder Yi-Ting Chen as he traveled to Kaohsiung, Taiwan from the United States in search of a group of talented engineers.
