Reading time ( words)

Date: Wednesday, February 8, 2017
Time: 11:30 am - 1:30 pm 
Where: Clifton C. Miller Community Center in Tustin, CA
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.

Reserve a spot on your calendar on Wednesday, Feb. 8 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm for this educational Lunch ‘n Learn meeting event.

Who Really Owns the PCB Layout? Part 2

02/07/2018 | Paul Taubman, Nine Dot Connects
In Part 1 of this series, Paul Taubman made the bold statement that the PCB layout is just as much a mechanical effort as it is an electrical one. In Part 2, he threads the needle, explaining why he believes that a PCB truly a mechatronic design, and why mechanical engineers may be more prepared to take on the PCB layout.

Thermal Management Update with Doug Brooks

01/22/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCBDesign007
I had the opportunity to talk with our contributor Doug Brooks recently. He has been doing some research on temperature effects on PCB traces over the last few years, and I wanted to check the status of his latest thermal efforts. He discussed his work with Dr. Johannes Adam, why temperature charts based on a trace in isolation are inaccurate, and how the industry remained so wrong about PCB temperatures for so long.

Mike Jouppi Discusses his Drive for Better Thermal Data

01/12/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCB Design007
If you mention thermal management in a group of PCB designers and design engineers, Mike Jouppi’s name usually pops up. Mike is an engineer and founder of the Thermal Management LLC consulting firm. He spent years updating IPC’s charts on current-carrying capacity, which had been unchanged since the 1950s. I recently caught up with Mike and asked him to give us his views on the state of thermal management, as well as the tools and standards related to thermal design.
