Register now for Mentor’s free monthly Advanced Technology Webinar Series, to be held August 30, 2018. The topic is Panelization with the Xpedition Flow.
Xpedition Fablink simplifies the process of creating a panel design. Driven by the PCB, users can keep panel data up to date and easily place multiple PCBs in one panel if necessary. Panel-level DRC checks ensure that panels are correct and ready to manufacture.
The presenter is Kyle Lake of Oasis Sales, formerly a corporate marketing engineer with Mentor.
What Attendees Will Learn
- Easily create a panel design using Xpedition FabLink from your PCB
- Import and array one, or multiple PCBs into your panel
- Quickly generate manufacturing documents
- Run panel-level DRC checks
Who Should Attend
- Hardware engineers
- PCB designers

In this interview, Saline Lectronics (an Emerald EMS company) President Jason Sciberras talks about PCB designers offering packaging options in the bill of materials. As Jason explains, mil/aero manufacturers like Saline can’t make many changes to a design without getting recertified, so including approved packaging options in the BOM from the start is a great way to go. Are you offering options in your BOM?

Design engineer Sathishkumar Vijayakumar (aka Sathish Kumar V.) with Tessolve Semiconductor, India, took home top honors in this year’s IPC Design Competition, besting the other four finalists in a rigid-flex design showdown during IPC APEX EXPO. Unlike last year, no one finished the design completely, so judges graded competitors on what they did finish, as well as criteria such as design decisions they made, and whether they followed electrical and DFM rules.

As I look back on 2022, I’m realizing that my company plays multiple roles in client projects beyond just designing circuits and PCBs. Sure, we’re primarily a PCB design company, but we also help with things that happen outside the PCB. This includes tasks like enclosure design, defining mechanical constraints, simulating electrical behavior, mating boards into larger assemblies, selecting cabling, and defining test requirements, all of which slowly creep into the standard scope of work for design projects.
