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.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

01/20/2023 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
We’re in the middle of show season, and it certainly “shows.” Thank you very much. I’m here all week. Don’t forget to tip your wait staff. This week, we published a variety of articles, columns, and news items, and much of it centered on trade shows. Technical Editor Dan Feinberg brings us a report from CES 2023. IPC announced the winners of the Best Technical Paper awards for IPC APEX EXPO 2023. And we have an interview with Altium’s Rea Callender about the company’s educational efforts at APEX and around the globe.

Altium Focuses on Design Education

01/16/2023 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Altium keeps its eyes on the designers of the future. The company has been working with colleges and universities for years, providing free seats of Altium Designer for the next generation of PCB designers and design engineers. At IPC APEX EXPO 2023, Altium will be providing software for the finalists in the IPC Design Competition just as it did last year. They offer a variety of other educational programs as well, including Upverter classes and a design competition that aims to address environmental change. Here, Rea Callender, Altium’s VP of education, discusses its educational programs and plans for the week of the show.

The Battle of the Boards

01/12/2023 | Patrick Crawford, IPC
Last year, IPC held its first-ever design competition at IPC APEX EXPO in San Diego. PCB designers from around the world competed in a series of heats during the months before the show, culminating in a showdown on the show floor between the top three finalists. Rafal Przeslawski, now with AMD, took home the top prize last year. This year, the competition is back for its sophomore year. I asked Patrick Crawford, manager of design standards and related programs for IPC, to “layout” the details on the design contest, including lessons learned in 2022 and what’s new for the 2023 competition.
