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.

New Designers Council Column: The Digital Layout

12/04/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
The IPC Designers Council is launching a new column in Design007 Magazine: “The Digital Layout.” I recently asked two IPC Designers Council (DC) Executive Board members, Mike Creeden and Stephen Chavez, to discuss the content and objective of their new column, and how this all ties in with the DC.

Mentor’s HyperLynx Automates SERDES Channel Design

04/09/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Mentor recently released the newest version of its HyperLynx signal integrity software. This version may be the first SI tool in the industry to fully automate SERDES design channel validation. I spoke recently with Chuck Ferry, product marketing manager with Mentor, about the new HyperLynx and some of the new serial link design capabilities that customers have been demanding.

Medical PCB Design: Not Just Another High-Rel Board

02/03/2016 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCB Design007
Some of the coolest new electronic products have come courtesy of the medical market. I wanted to find out more about this fast-growing segment, so I contacted Kenneth MacCallum, an engineering physicist with StarFish Medical. MacCallum, an engineering physicist who designs PCBs for medical applications, explained why medical PCBs are not quite like other high-reliability boards.
