Topic: Advanced PCB Laminate Material Selection: What a designer needs to know about choosing the right material for your design 

Speaker 1: Michael Gay, Director, High-Performance Products, Isola Laminate Group

Designers are faced with many choices when trying to select the correct laminate type for your design. Many factors for performance: signal integrity, temperature range, microvia performance and cost come into play. Michael will share with us the various materials, properties and electrical characteristics to meet the requirements for your applications.

The presentation will cover various glass fabric and weave styles, resin technologies, pre-preg types, copper foil types and treatment properties. Also, Michael will discuss the many factors that influence the performance and signal integrity of high-speed design applications. Other important information such as laminate thermal performance, guidance for understanding data sheet laminate properties, electrical properties and laminate cost considerations will be presented to increase your knowledge and stimulate your questions for our expert speaker.

Speaker 2: Dan Diesel, Chief Information Officer and Business Strategist, Insulectro

Designers are also faced with selecting the correct laminate type based on the material availability and the need for speed of delivery for the program. Dan Diesel will share what is being done in the market to continue to drive faster delivery speed and providing information to the designer regarding material availability and lead times.

AltiumLive Summit—Munich, Germany, Part 1

11/07/2017 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Altium held a very successful AltiumLive PCB Design Summit in San Diego, California at the beginning of October for the benefit of their North American design community, and followed it three weeks later with a counterpart European event in Munich. And what an eye-opener it proved to be—literally hundreds of delegates, a superbly organised and managed programme, billed as a completely immersive two-day interactive design experience on a theme of learning, connecting and getting inspired.

Insulectro Teams with Isola to Address Signal Integrity Needs

11/06/2017 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCB Design007
Insulectro and Isola recently shared a combined booth during PCB West 2017. Insulectro has distributed Isola materials for years, and the companies wanted to focus on Isola’s line-up of high-speed, low-loss material sets. Insulectro’s Chris Hunrath, VP of Technology, and Norm Berry, Director of Laminates and OEM Marketing, sat down with me to discuss the challenges facing signal integrity engineers today, and some of the Isola low-loss, low-Dk materials that can help with their signal integrity requirements. You might find Chris and Norm speaking to a group of PCB designers near you.
