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.

Setting Goals for Your PCB Design Education

03/30/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
For our March issue of Design007 Magazine on planning your design education, we spoke with Bill Brooks of Nordson ASYMTEK, a long-time PCB designer, CID instructor, and fantastic sculptor. He is also one of the first to ever teach standalone PCB design courses in a college. After he earned his certification to teach the IPC CID workshops, Bill served as an adjunct instructor at Palomar College near San Diego, teaching beginning and advanced PCB design classes for 10 years. I asked Bill to share his thoughts on setting up a PCB design education career plan, and the need to stay on top of your game as a PCB designer.
