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.

Setting Goals for Your PCB Design Education

03/30/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
For our March issue of Design007 Magazine on planning your design education, we spoke with Bill Brooks of Nordson ASYMTEK, a long-time PCB designer, CID instructor, and fantastic sculptor. He is also one of the first to ever teach standalone PCB design courses in a college. After he earned his certification to teach the IPC CID workshops, Bill served as an adjunct instructor at Palomar College near San Diego, teaching beginning and advanced PCB design classes for 10 years. I asked Bill to share his thoughts on setting up a PCB design education career plan, and the need to stay on top of your game as a PCB designer.

RF and Microwave: No Black Magic

03/15/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I caught up with Ben Jordan after his class on RF and microwave at IPC APEX EXPO. Ben, an electrical engineer, explained how sitting through previous classes on this topic led to him developing his own class. “I wanted to bridge the gap,” he says, “with a class that makes the material approachable and teaches the intuitive nature of fields and waves and how they work in circuit boards.”
