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

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.
