Orange County Designers Council Chapter Meeting April 25


Reading time ( words)

The Orange County Chapter of the IPC Designers Council will hold a Lunch ‘n’ Learn event on April 25, 2019 in Irvine, California. Guest speaker Natasha Baker, CEO and founder of SnapEDA, will give a presentation titled The Top 5 Symbol & Footprint Mistakes That Even Professional Engineers Make

When creating libraries, standards are crucial for maintaining consistency, accuracy, and reliability. Yet even with rigid standards in place, mistakes inevitably creep into such a detail-oriented process. 

Attendees will learn about the five mistakes that even professionals make when creating component libraries. Delving far beyond the basics, this presentation looks at the more gnarly errors that trip up engineers. For example, we all know to double-check our pin mappings, but what about how you’ve interpreted the component’s orientation in the datasheet?

Misinterpreting a component's top view for its bottom view is one of the top causes of faulty boards. Drawn from our community of 200,000 engineers, we hope that these lessons will prevent costly prototype iterations and delays on your next project. 

Finally, attendees will learn how to prevent these errors on their next designs, by, for example, bringing more verification into your processes through checklists and other solutions. 

Reserve a spot on your calendar on Thursday, April 25 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm for this educational “Lunch ‘n Learn” event.

Libraries: A Must-have for Design

06/17/2019 | Dan Feinberg
I-Connect007 was invited to attend a session of the Orange County Chapter of the IPC Designers Council (DC). Even though I have been an IPC member for over half a century (yes, almost since vacuum tubes dominated design), this was my first DC event.

XNC Format: Gerber Takes Data Into the Future

05/20/2019 | Denis Morin, Karel Tavernier, Jean-Pierre Charras, and Marius Matioc
The problem is that so many NC files are of deplorable quality because the NC format was never designed as a data transfer format. It has always been a machine driver and contains all sorts of information that a drilling machine needs, but that is irrelevant and confusing for data exchange.

Learning to Be More Flexible: Case Studies on Improving FPC Design

05/14/2019 | Todd MacFadden, Bose Corporation
As miniaturization requirements force manufacturers to pack more functionality into ever-smaller packages, it becomes more difficult to conform to IPC construction recommendations. Achieving robust FPCs requires frequent, iterative interaction internally among the mechanical, electrical, and PCB design teams, as well as with the fabricators and assemblers. The sooner in the design cycle you can engage the supplier and assembler, the better.
