Mentor Video: What You Need to Know About Rigid-Flex Design


Reading time ( words)

Rigid-flex technology is one of the fastest-growing areas in electronics product design.

From smart devices to sensors, to automotive and beyond, rigid-flex is now used in nearly every industry. Why? Because rigid-flex technology empowers electronics companies to meet today’s most challenging environment and form-factor requirements. Rigid-flex not only lets you create designs that are smaller, thinner and lighter, it improves product performance and reliability by eliminating mechanical connectors and cables.

This on-demand webinar will show you how PADS Professional's rigid-flex technology simplifies the rigid-flex design process, from stack-up definition through to manufacturing hand-off. The presenters are Technical Marketing Engineering Manager John McMillan and Technical Marketing Engineer Brent Klingforth, both of Mentor, a Siemens business.

What you will learn:

• Requirements for flex design
• When and where arced structures are required
• How to design a proper stack-up
• Automation specific to flex design

This Month in Design007 Magazine: Thermal Fundamentals With Mike Jouppi

09/09/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect007 team recently interviewed Mike Jouppi, one of the champions of thermal management in PCBs. Mike spent decades working on updating the old IPC current-carrying data, which dated back to the 1950s, and he is the primary architect behind IPC-2152— the standard for determining current-carrying capacity in printed board design. As Mike explained in this wide-ranging interview, even if you’re using the latest thermal design software, you still need to have a firm understanding of the fundamentals.

Chris Hanson: New Ventec IMS Dielectrics Rated for Higher Temps

07/07/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Andy Shaughnessy recently spoke with Chris Hanson, global head of IMS Technology for Ventec International Group. During their conversation, Chris discusses his group’s recent efforts to create new IMS materials, with a focus on dielectrics. As Chris explains, Ventec has developed several new dielectrics that can withstand much higher operating temperatures, one of which is UL-rated for a maximum operating temp of 155°C, which may be the highest for an IMS dielectric.
