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.

Designing in a Vacuum Q&A: Mark Thompson

05/12/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I-Connect007 Columnist Mark Thompson of Out of the Box Manufacturing has been in CAM engineering for decades, and he’s also worked as a PCB designer, so we knew he would have a few things to say about working in a vacuum. As he explains, the designer isn’t the only stakeholder in the process who feels like he’s working inside the dust bag of a Hoover upright.
