Cascade Chapter Designers Council Meeting is June 12


Reading time ( words)

The Cascade Chapter of the IPC Designers Council will be meeting on June 12. This evening event is free, with dinner sponsored by Mentor. Don't miss out on this great educational opportunity to advance your knowledge and design skills.

The guest speaker is Robert Hanson, and electrical engineer and signal integrity design instructor. He will present Achieving Signal Integrity and Meeting EMI Radiation Requirements Using High-Speed Connectors.

Robert will be showing examples of connectors that have poor control of EMI radiation/immunity, which are also affected by mutual inductance and high signal reflection. Next, examples of adding ground pins will be shown that in turn enhance capability. The ground blade connector will be shown with different signal/ground pin configurations to show comparative transmission capabilities. Two widely used high-speed connectors for circuit cards and backplanes will be compared. A method to interface a connector to a land trace to eliminate reflections will follow. Finally, a connector that passed radiated emissions up to 500MHz will be discussed. 

Date
Wednesday June 12, 2019

Time
6:00 - 8:00 pm 

Location

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

01/20/2023 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
We’re in the middle of show season, and it certainly “shows.” Thank you very much. I’m here all week. Don’t forget to tip your wait staff. This week, we published a variety of articles, columns, and news items, and much of it centered on trade shows. Technical Editor Dan Feinberg brings us a report from CES 2023. IPC announced the winners of the Best Technical Paper awards for IPC APEX EXPO 2023. And we have an interview with Altium’s Rea Callender about the company’s educational efforts at APEX and around the globe.

Altium Focuses on Design Education

01/16/2023 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Altium keeps its eyes on the designers of the future. The company has been working with colleges and universities for years, providing free seats of Altium Designer for the next generation of PCB designers and design engineers. At IPC APEX EXPO 2023, Altium will be providing software for the finalists in the IPC Design Competition just as it did last year. They offer a variety of other educational programs as well, including Upverter classes and a design competition that aims to address environmental change. Here, Rea Callender, Altium’s VP of education, discusses its educational programs and plans for the week of the show.

The Battle of the Boards

01/12/2023 | Patrick Crawford, IPC
Last year, IPC held its first-ever design competition at IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego. PCB designers from around the world competed in a series of heats during the months before the show, culminating in a showdown on the show floor between the top three finalists. Rafal Przeslawski, now with AMD, took home the top prize last year. This year, the competition is back for its sophomore year. I asked Patrick Crawford, manager of design standards and related programs for IPC, to “layout” the details on the design contest, including lessons learned in 2022 and what’s new for the 2023 competition.
