We've all heard quite a bit of chatter about smart manufacturing over the years. Everyone who designs, fabricates, and assembles PCBs wants to get on the smart train. But what does this mean for PCB design data?

In this month's issue of Design007 Magazine, we ask our contributors to explain how designers and design engineers can take full advantage of smart technologies such as Industry 4.0 and IPC's Connected Factory Exchange (CFX).

We’ve heard a lot lately about the need to identify tribal knowledge within our organizations. How do you know whether an “expert” is sharing documented knowledge or it’s just something they learned at their first job during the Carter administration? We asked IPC design instructor Kris Moyer to explain his process for separating the wheat from the chaff, so to speak, in design knowledge. As he points out, a true expert will not be afraid to cite the sources and data sets behind their arguments.

Are You Offering Options in Your Bill of Materials?

03/07/2023 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
In this interview, Saline Lectronics (an Emerald EMS company) President Jason Sciberras talks about PCB designers offering packaging options in the bill of materials. As Jason explains, mil/aero manufacturers like Saline can’t make many changes to a design without getting recertified, so including approved packaging options in the BOM from the start is a great way to go. Are you offering options in your BOM?
