Free eBook Guides Readers to Data Package Perfection


Reading time ( words)

Hundreds of PCB designers have downloaded The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Producing the Perfect Data Package micro eBook. Join this growing community of smart designers by exploring this comprehensive guide on how to perfect the hand-off from designer to fabricator.

This book is part of I-Connect007’s ongoing series, The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to…, which is specifically dedicated to educating PCB designers and serves as a valuable resource for readers seeking the most relevant information available. Written by Mark Thompson of Prototron Circuits, Producing the Perfect Data Package has everything you need to know to create a complete, accurate design data package.

In Prototron’s CAM department, Mark Thompson has seen it all. Many data packages he receives from PCB designers are either inaccurate, incomplete, or both, often putting the project on hold. Mark is passionate about educating his customers so that they can produce a perfect data package every time; now, he’s sharing this information with the PCB design community.

“Mark does an outstanding job detailing what needs to be included in the handoff between the board designer and fabricator,” said UltraCAD Design Founder Douglas Brooks, Ph.D. “Understanding and following his advice will lead to a smooth transition between these two functions. This book should be required reading for every designer.”

Kelly Dack, CID+, CIT, EPTAC, adds, “Mark Thompson is not afraid to ask for what he needs from a customer to start a job with the end in sight. In fact, he does the industry one better in this book by telling you what a PCB fabricator needs to get the complex job done right. Much appreciated!”

Managing Footprints With Integrated EDA Tools

02/23/2021 | Matt Walsh, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Electronics companies are always under great pressure to continually grow and innovate. In addition to navigating ever-accelerating design cycles, they must also address and overcome generational complexities associated with their products, the underlying components they use, and the human capital accountable for delivering on time and on budget. Electronics firms can ill afford the time and resource inefficiencies associated with manually correcting design errors, poor library data integrity, or other inconsistencies leading to missed deadlines or even costly re-spins.

A Library Management Cautionary Tale

02/12/2021 | Steven V. Chavez, CID+
The library management of footprints, land patterns, or cells—however you refer to them in your ecosystem—is one of the most critical items in the foundation of any PCB or CCA design. When I was asked to write an article on this topic, so many thoughts and experiences instantly flooded my mind. After 30+ years of designing PCBs throughout the industry, I have my share of experiences and stories about footprints. One particular experience stands out.

Best Practices: Footprint Design and CAD Library Management
