Having now recovered from the event last Thursday, I felt we should mention how the Electronic Design Industry Awards has continued to go from strength to strength. Although the awards ceremony overran a little on the night, leaving the comedian with a tough audience, everyone we spoke with really enjoyed the event. With more entries, more attendess (and definitely more wine being drunk!) the awards are an important event for the whole UK electronics industry, from design through to production and test. Finally congratulations to VMETRO, who were finalists in the Test Solution of the Year category with their excellent Vanguard analysers.
