About Us



Different by Design



Nine Dot Connects has a business model that we believe is unique to the industry. We have fully embraced the concept of a virtual office, allowing us to provide professional engineering talent without having to be restricted to a single building or geographical location. This allows us to attract the best talent while managing our costs so that we can offer top tier engineering services at reasonable prices.

Our organizational roots are in the EDA industry, in particular, as a VAR (Value Added Reseller). Though we still represent several PCB related products, our focus is on training, coaching and consulting in all matters pertaining to the PCB, whether it be software tools, design or process. We believe that the PCB is truly the “medium of all electronic mediums.” The PCB is just as vital and complex now as it ever was before.


"No matter how much experience you have, there's always more to learn. I really appreciate the regular Nine Dots Connects series of Webinars. They're a very helpful source of expert-level guidance which I can draw on without disruption of my other work responsibilities. I consider them an essential part of my ongoing effort to stay current in a rapidly evolving industry."
Brian Falter - Senior Engineer, Electronic Innovation Inc.


In addition to our technical expertise, our sales/marketing personnel have decades of experience working with hardware engineering groups in addition to experience in the EDA industry. Rather than being focused on selling a specific design solution, we are interested in understanding your design process. We believe in a long-term, mutually beneficial business relationship with our clients where we provide multiple solutions and services as needed over time.

We are not a public company driven by quarterly quotas, so we have the luxury of putting our clients first rather than being pressured to get “deals” done in the short-term. Our design team members without exception are very experienced and are tier-1 electrical engineers and/or PCB Designers. Our team is top heavy on technical members with technical experts out numbering sales/marketing by 5 to 1, which is a clear indication of our focus and intent. Nearly all of our team members regardless of functional area have in excess of 20 years in the electrical design domain.


“I really learned quite a lot from all the webinars. I also acknowledge the years’ great industry experience of the presenters. I have no doubt and would like to work with Nine Dot Connects if I have the chance. Also I will recommend Nine Dot Connects if I know anyone working on PCB design and have the needs for technical supports.”
Fubin Zhang - EE, Satake USA
