Ventec's Technology Ambassador Alun Morgan to Keynote at AltiumLive 2019


Reading time ( words)

Ventec International Group Co., Ltd., a world leader in the production of polyimide and high reliability epoxy laminates and prepregs and specialist provider of thermal management and IMS solutions, is pleased to announce Technology Ambassador Alun Morgan as a keynote speaker at the AltiumLive summit in Munich on the 16 January 2019 with a presentation on ‘PCB base material properties and developments: What designers need to know'.

AltiumLive is the annual PCB design summit which has quickly become one of the largest electronics conferences in the world.

Alun's presentation will focus on PCB base material properties and developments, aiming to give designers a greater understanding of the base materials used in their designs and the critical properties of base materials that impact performance.

Alun will review the development of high reliability base materials for PCBs with a focus on thermal performance, reliability and signal integrity. He will explore classification by application as a method of substrate selection which gives the designer the flexibility to select the appropriate substrate for an application without over engineering performance that is neither required nor can be afforded. The presentation includes a straightforward guide to the PCB substrate manufacturing process emphasising the impact of resin chemistry, material reinforcement and copper foil properties on substrate performance. Armed with this knowledge, PCB Designers will be able to better specify and choose appropriate materials for their needs.

Ian Mayoh, European technical support manager, will also be expertly on hand throughout the event and at the Ventec booth for any technical advice required.

AltiumLive Munich: Day 1 Keynotes

01/28/2019 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
The weather forecast was wrong! Despite my apprehension and winter clothes, there was very little snow at the Hilton Munich Airport. It could have been any season of the year inside the splendid convention facility, which was also the venue for the second European AltiumLive design summit. AltiumLive brought together a family of over 220 electronics engineers and designers eager to learn from top industry experts and applications specialists who were equally eager to share their knowledge and experience freely.

The Quest for Perfect Design Data Packages

01/18/2019 | Barry Matties, I-Connect007
There’s an ongoing problem in the PCB industry: fabrication shops are receiving incomplete or inadequate design data packages, leaving manufacturers scrambling to fill in the blanks. For a quick-turn prototype shop like Washington-based Prototron, with over 5,000 customers and up to 60% of orders coming from new customers each month, that can add up to a lot of wasted time and effort just in the quoting stage. Dave Ryder, Prototron president, and Mark Thompson, engineering support, delve into this continuing issue and more.

A Fractal Conversation with Jim Howard and Greg Lucas

01/15/2019 | Barry Matties and Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
Veteran PCB technologists Jim Howard and Greg Lucas have made an interesting discovery: Certain shapes of copper planes make a PCB run more efficiently than other shapes, a process they dubbed fractal design. It doesn’t appear to cost a penny more, and testing suggests that fractal design techniques could eliminate edge noise. Barry Matties and Andy Shaughnessy asked Jim and Greg to discuss the fractal design process, and the advantages of using this technique.
