Cascade Chapter of IPC Designers Council Meeting April 3


Reading time ( words)

The first quarterly IPC Designers Council Chapter Meeting for 2019 will be held April 3. There are a few changes this year that should make it easier for attendees to make it to the meetings.

The meetings will still be held at Lake Washington Institute of Technology-Kirkland Campus (LWIT) but the meetings have been moved back to an evening time slot. And there is no charge for this event, although donations are greatly appreciated.

This first chapter meeting will be on Wednesday April 3, 2019 from 6-8 pm in room A102. The topic for this meeting will be a roundtable discussion with three topics chosen based on feedback from our last survey. 

Discussion topics include:

  1. Cutting Edge Design techniques
  2. IPC Standards
  3. Materials and Processes

The Executive Board will be there to help guide and share their knowledge and experiences. The Executive Board has gathered over 100 years of experience combined, so attendees will be sure to learn something invaluable. Please join these great discussions and bring your experiences, ideas and knowledge on these topics.

Dinner is covered, so just sign up on the Cascade DC website and join your peers and co-workers.

A Sneak Peak with Jim van den Hogen

12/29/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Jim van den Hogen has been teaching PCB designers and design engineers about fabrication processes for decades. Twenty years ago, I had the opportunity to see a class of his at PCB West; even back then, the room was jammed with designers eager to learn more about DFM techniques. Now Jim is bringing his teaching expertise to IPC APEX EXPO 2023 this January with a similar class directed at PCB designers. I asked Jim to give us a sneak peek into his curriculum and to share what he hopes attendees will take away from his class, as well as his thoughts on how to best bridge the gap between design and fabrication.

Physics, Electrical Engineering, and PCB Design

12/20/2022 | Tamara Jovanovic, Happiest Baby
When I was a sophomore in college, I had an amazing professor for Physics II: Electricity and Magnetism. He made a series of complex topics fun to learn, and his personality and way of teaching were almost tailor-made for the way I like to learn. He explained new concepts through practical examples, and always kept students engaged throughout the class, making sure everyone understood the lectures. Physics II was an engineering prerequisite, and I didn’t mind taking the class since I really enjoyed the material. However, I did find myself wondering a few times, “Will I ever use any physics in real life?” It turns out that the answer to the question was yes.

Sunstone’s Matt Stevenson Shares Insights From New PCB Design Book

10/27/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
There’s designing the “perfect” circuit board and then there’s designing a board that is “perfect for manufacturing.” While seasoned designers and design engineers understand many of the nuances, PCB fabricator Sunstone Circuits has just published a new book specifically for new designers who have the knowledge of design but are still learning what it means to get the board manufactured. Sunstone’s Matt Stevenson takes the reader through a series of situations that should help clarify what’s happening in the fabrication process and how to adjust a board design to be better suited for manufacturing.
