Creating library content can be simple with the right tools. CAD vendors can only supply so much content. At some point, you have to create a symbol or footprint. Don’t use the manual processes provided. This one-hour webinar will show you how to use automation tools included with PADS to create the parts you need quickly and simply.
Finding those parts to place on a design can be tedious. You’ll learn how to simplify this process using parametric searching.
The webinar will take place on November 9, 2017, at 9:30 am Pacific. The presenter is Brent Klingforth,
Attendees will learn:
- Tool automation to help make custom symbols
- Wizard based footprint creation using IPC compliant rules
- Manage component property information the easy way
- Library content and data available for free

PCB Carolina 2018, the one-day tabletop show based in Raleigh, North Carolina, drew quite a crowd to the McKimmon Conference and Training Center at NC State University on November 7. Show managers Tony Cosentino, Randy Faucette, and Lance Olive (all employees of the Better Boards service bureau) said that this year’s event showed signs of growth compared to the 2017 show, which was also larger than the previous year. They estimated that about 1,000 people attended this year, and they expect another increase in attendance in 2019.

During PCB West 2018, I spoke with Dan Fernsebner, product marketing group director, and Hemant Shah, product management group director for enterprise PCB products, both with Cadence Design Systems, about their new software launch—DesignTrue DFM Ecosystem. Fernsebner and Shah also address recent technical papers from Cadence on Industry 4.0, IPC-2581, system-level design, and return-path analysis and management.

Over the course of his career, Mark Thompson, CID+, engineering support at Prototron Circuits, has evaluated thousands of data packages and delivered numerous talks to designers and engineers about how to create the perfect package. In the spirit of “garbage in, garbage out,” data packages must be perfect to create quality boards.
