Orange Co. Designers Council Meeting July 18


Reading time ( words)

The Orange County Chapter of the IPC Designers Council will hold a “Lunch ‘n’ Learn” meeting on July 18 at JT Schmid’s Restaurant & Brewery in Anaheim.

The special guest speaker will be Julie Ellis, field application engineer with TTM. Julie will present “How Fabrication Processes Determine DFM Guidelines: A detailed look at fabrication realities to help you understand capabilities and trade-offs.”

PCB designers struggle with many challenges when planning a layout, as many factors in the fabrication process must be considered. Board shops must constantly invest in equipment and process technologies to improve their manufacturing yields as complexity grows.

Julie’s presentation will help attendees design a better PCB through a deeper understanding of major processes demonstrated in PCB101. For example, design rules are different for mechanically drilled vs. laser drilled holes, and using laser drill pad diameters for through-hole requirements may kill your project in production.

Julie will define key fabricator concerns caused by the interplay between material and process tolerances and how they stack up. The end results are minimum DFM guidelines that will generate the highest yields at the fabricator. Each fabricator’s site guidelines are established based on their unique equipment sets. The equipment sets are selected to support different technologies ranging from heavy Cu to microBGA designs.

At the end of this presentation, attendees will understand why different fab facilities have different capabilities, as well as how to identify and apply the correct design guidelines related to registration, aspect ratio and annular ring for mechanical through-hole vs. microvia blind hole, etching, plated layer vs. non-plated layer finished Cu thickness, and VIPPO (via-in-pad, plated over).

IPC Designers Council Has a New Name: IPC Design

02/11/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Yes, you read that right. The IPC Designers Council is now known as IPC Design. Many of you have heard secondhand stories about what this change will entail, so I asked IPC to shed some light on this subject. I recently spoke with IPC’s Teresa Rowe and Patrick Crawford about what’s changing, what’s not, and IPC’s plans to provide improved infrastructure for PCB design content and curriculum.
