Words of Advice: Fabricator Feedback?


Reading time ( words)

In a recent Design007 Survey, we asked the following question: What is the most important feedback that you receive after your board is manufactured? Here are just a few of the answers, edited slightly for clarity.

Karl Bates, ConnectPCB: Clearance is less than I expect, copper balance, and thieving.

Chand Basha M, Anora Semiconductor: We could not plate the board to required plating thickness. We had to reduce few pad sizes to adjust the fabrication process. A few mechanicals in the design are altered slightly due to capability issues.

Jim Pierce, Axiom Electronics: Impedance specifications, testing results, and documentation.

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.

Susy Webb: The History and Future of the Designers Council

When we started planning this issue on the IPC Designers Council, I knew I’d have to speak with design instructor Susy Webb, a longtime DC member and currently an executive board officer. I asked Susy to discuss how she first got involved with the DC, why designers should join their local chapter, and what the future holds for this group.
