New Book Examines Critical Need for Proper PCB Documentation


Reading time ( words)

Bring your knowledge of PCB documentation into the 21st century with The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Documentation—the latest title in our educational library.

The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… is an ongoing series specifically dedicated to educating printed circuit board designers and serves as a valuable resource for people seeking the most relevant design information available.

When the PCB layout is finished, the designer is still not quite done. The designer’s intent must still be communicated to the fabricator through accurate PCB documentation. Documentation can be an error-prone task—one that may take up to 20% of the total PCB design cycle time. Many designers still utilize documentation strategies that date to the ‘80s and ‘90s. Mark Gallant of DownStream Technologies explains how today’s solutions can eliminate post-processing errors and speed up time to market.

Kelly Dack—CID+, CIT, EPTAC—said, “This book will teach you to save time and money, reduce frustration, and make your job easier.” This book is also a must-read for any PCB designers or design engineers who would like to adopt 21st-century documentation processes.

We hope you enjoy The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Documentation.

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.
