Orange County Chapter of IPC Designers Council Lunch 'n' Learn Meeting July 19


Reading time ( words)

For our July Lunch ‘n Learn meeting, we’re going to explore the advances in embedded passives, which can benefit many designs today. We have two guest speakers with informative presentations to educate us on this important and growing technology trend. 

Date: Wednesday, July 19, 2017
Time: 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Where: Clifton C. Miller Community Center in Tustin (Note the special location for this meeting)

Speaker 1: Bruce Mahler, Vice President of Ohmega Technologies, will present Embedded Thin Film Resistors—An update on Current Applications and Designs”

One of the PCB designer’s tools is embedded passives, which can free up routing area, reduce assembly, improve reliability, improve electrical performance, and for some designs, reduce the cost of the assembled board. OhmegaPly is an embedded resistive material that has seen growing use in a variety of electronic systems, including high-frequency RF circuits, MEMS sensors and heater elements.  This presentation will provide an overview of the thin film resistor technology including its production, product offerings and characteristics. Examples of current OhmegaPly designs will be reviewed and will be followed by a discussion of future trends for embedded resistors in PCBs.

Speaker 2: Jin-Hyun Hwang, Applications Development Engineer at DuPont, will present Improving Power Delivery Networks (PDNs) Using Polyimide-based Thin Laminates—What PCB Designers need to know about Buried Capacitance”

This presentation will provide an overview of the use of thin laminate products (i.e., buried capacitance, a pair of power/ground layer pairs) designed for the power distribution design options. The presentation will discuss the use of both 1-mil and 0.5-mil dielectric laminates and the benefits of each.  Buried capacitance layers can reduce the number of decoupling capacitors, free up design space, reduce noise and create higher reliability, along with many other benefits.  Example stack-ups from high layer-count PCBs used for server and telecommunications equipment will be shared. Also, process challenges at fabricators will be addressed.

Reserve a spot on your calendar on Wednesday, July 19 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm for this educational “Lunch ‘n Learn” meeting event.  

Location:
Clifton C. Miller Community Center
300 Centennial Way
Tustin, CA  92780 

Cost: The cost to attend this Lunch ‘n Learn event will be $10 at the door to help cover the lunch cost.  

Please RSVP no later than noon on Tuesday, July 18 

I look forward to seeing you there!

Producing Diverse Designs in Concert With Manufacturing

06/16/2022 | Scott Miller, FreedomCAD Services
There is a new acronym bubbling up in the design world: DWM, which stands for “design with manufacturing.” Why is this different than design for manufacturing, or DFM? With DWM, the emphasis is on integration between the design team and the manufacturers during the design process. DWM is much more than that. We are tasked with producing designs that meet various technical requirements, yet are cost-effective and manufacturable. We provide this service to hundreds of customers who have varying degrees of processes, tools, and manufacturing partners. Given this diversity, we have recognized the importance of designing with manufacturing to achieve the product development goals of manufacturability and technical excellence.

Additive Manufacturing Requires Additive Design Techniques

05/09/2022 | Luca Gautero, SUSS MicroTec
Although I am not a designer by trade, I want to share my thoughts on what additive manufacturing means for designers, especially how it relates to solder mask. In this article, you will learn what topics I feel are the most important to address.
