ATLANTA -- UP Media Group today announced the launch of Board Talk, a new bulletin board for the electronics industry.

Board Talk, the new bulletin board, is at theprintedcircuitboard.com, and is produced by UPMG, Printed Circuit Design & Fab and CIRCUITS ASSEMBLY magazines.

The bulletin board is open to anyone in the industry. Categories include PCB design, fabrication, assembly, market data, trade shows and press releases. Members are invited to create their own topics (threads) for discussing anything industry related that they have on their mind.

UPMG also announced an agreement with the IPC Designers Council to offer Board Talk as a communications center for news, announcements and meetings, plus information on the Designers Certification program.

Board Talk follows PCB Chat, the popular moderated chat forum, as the latest innovations introduced by UPMG this year.
