Nine Dot Connects Offers Comprehensive Class on PCB Process


Reading time ( words)

Nine Dot Connects has developed a three-day training class called “PCB Fundamentals” in an effort to bring to light the entire PCB process, from specification to and including manufacturing. It was developed so that anyone (designers, engineers, technicians, program managers, purchasing agents, etc.) who has anything to do with the PCB design process can participate and understand it.

The class is taught by instructors who have design experience. The exercises on each of the topics are thought provoking, designed to facilitate dialog in the class. This exchange of ideas and thoughts makes the class valuable to both the new designer and those have experience. This is not a design class and no EDA tool knowledge is required. It is focused on real best practices for make the PCB design experience efficient and fruitful. To find out more about this class, what it has to offer, or to register, please visit them here.

PCB Design Challenges: A Package Designer’s Perspective

09/17/2018 | Bill Acito, Cadence Design Systems
The challenges faced by the PCB designers of today are significant. If we examine the breadth of designs, we find ever-increasing data rates and more high-speed signal routing that drive additional challenges meeting signal-quality requirements, including reflection signal loss and crosstalk issues. At the same time, designers are being asked to complete designs in shorter cycle times and in smaller form factors. They must come up with new and more complex routing strategies to better control impedance and crosstalk. Manual implementation is often time-consuming and prone to layout errors.

Managing the Challenges of Flex and Rigid-Flex Design

09/12/2018 | Dave Wiens, Mentor, a Siemens Business
PCB designers working with flex or rigid-flex technology face many potential risks that can derail a project and cause costly design failures. As the name implies, flex and rigid-flex designs comprise a combination of rigid and flexible board technologies made up of multiple layers of flexible circuit substrates, attached internally and/or externally to one or more rigid boards. These combinations provide flexibility for the PCB designer working on dense designs that require a specific form factor. Rigid-flex allows the PCB design team to cost-efficiently apply greater functionality to a smaller volume of space, while providing the mechanical stability required by most applications.

Mentor Preparing for Next-Gen PCB Designers

08/20/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Millennials are the future of our industry. What does this mean for the PCB design community? How do we attract more of these smart young people to the world of PCB design? I asked Paul Musto, director of marketing for Mentor’s Board Systems Division, to explain the company’s initiatives aimed at drawing more young people into PCB design
