AUGUST 2019 – Advanced Component Testing is happy to announce that Steven Pomilio has become our new Director of Engineering. Steve is an electrical engineer who has earned the respect of the ACT staff by working closely with them as a software engineer on numerous projects over a six-year period.
In fact, Steve played a leading role in several of ACT’s more recent advancements. Not only did he write the software that automatically records data that used to be manually notated, he also created the applications to control and thus automate electrical testing via ACT’s recently acquired, legacy HP8200. With his trademark can-do attitude, Steve is now focusing on accelerating the testing process while maintaining and even improving accuracy. Continue reading
July 18, 2019: Advanced Component Testing was the first in the world and is still the only U.S. electronic component test lab* to have
