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

Why Does the PCB Industry Still Use Gerber?

11/07/2019 | Karel Tavernier, Ucamco
Every so often, I hear technologists ask why so many PCB designers still use Gerber. That is a fair question. Ucamco has over 35 years of experience in developing and supporting cutting-edge software and hardware solutions for the global PCB industry. Our customers—small, medium, and large PCB fabricators—include the electronics industry’s leading companies, and many of them have been with us for over 30 years. We are dedicated to our industry and excellence in everything we do, which includes our custodianship of the Gerber format.

Design For Excellence: Karen McConnell on Standards

10/31/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
During the IPC Summer Meetings, I spoke with Karen McConnell, senior staff CAD CAM engineer with Northrop Grumman Mission Systems. Karen is a veteran PCB designer as well as an IPC committee chair and mentor. She offered an update on some of the IPC committees she chairs, the need for more mentor programs in this industry, and why you can call something a ham sandwich if you define it correctly in the standard.
