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.

So Many Standards Committees, So Little Time

10/28/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
During the IPC Summer Meetings and Panelpalooza in Raleigh, North Carolina, I met with Leo Lambert, vice president and director of technology at EPTAC. We discussed IPC’s recent efforts to revamp the way standards are developed and interpreted as well as changes to training and education committees and a variety of methods for eliminating errors and duplicated comments when revising standards.

Words of Advice: Your Company’s Design Process

08/27/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
In a recent survey, we asked PCB designers to describe their company’s design process: Is it a rigid workflow they follow to the letter, or a process that allows for their individual techniques? Of course, the comments were illustrative.

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.
