ExpressPCB Announces Upgrades


Reading time ( words)

ExpressPCB is excited to announce several enhancements to its ExpressPCB Plus Layout Software.  These upgrades to the Plus software will allow our customers to continue designing their next project with greater success. New finer pitch parameters are now available in version 2.0 allowing 5 mil trace and space routing, 6 mil finished vias (10 mil drilled holes) and up to 6 copper layers.  In addition, we have removed the size/shape constraint on our popular Miniboard Plus products, no longer are you restricted to a 2.5” x 3.8” rectangle. The new Miniboard parameters will allow you to build almost any shape up to 10 square inches per board (some restrictions apply). 

“As the electronic industry heads towards tighter pitch components, smaller and faster processors and shrinking PCB sizes, our customers began to express a need to have their layout software and PCB manufacturing provider keep up with the trend. We have gladly accepted this challenge and this release of ExpressPCB Plus gives customers that flexibility.  While we were under the hood we also managed to update some of the other pain points that our customers have shared with us as well,” said Michael Hebda, ExpressPCB product manager. Although we are not yet done improving our software, this was exciting enough we had to get the version 2.0 updates into our customers’ hands. One of the most requested items coming in Q2 2020 is the schematic link.  Stay tuned for more enhancements coming in 2020.”

Eliminating ‘Garbage In, Garbage Out’ With Checks and Balances

03/26/2021 | Nick Barbin, Optimum Design Associates
The proverbial saying “garbage in, garbage out” holds true in the electronic product development world. PCB designers stand squarely in the middle of a busy information intersection flowing with inputs and outputs. Missing or bad information at the beginning of a design project will undoubtedly lead to board re-spins, increased costs, and most importantly, a delayed product release. The same can be said about the PCB designer who doesn’t provide a fully checked and comprehensive data package to the downstream manufacturers, i.e., “throwing it over the fence.”

Altium Introduces New Subscription Model

Seven Tips for Your Next Stackup Design

02/01/2021 | Eric Bogatin, University of Colorado, Boulder
Rarely do we have the luxury of designing a board just for connectivity. When interconnects are not transparent, we must engineer them to reduce the noise they can generate. This is where design for signal integrity, power integrity and EMC—collectively high-speed digital engineering—are so important. Eric Bogatin offers seven tips for stackup design.
