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

I-007eBook Review: Thermal Management From a Fabricator’s Perspective

09/15/2020 | Dan Beaulieu, D.B. Management Group
The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Thermal Management: A Fabricator’s Perspective, written by Anaya Vardya, founder and CEO of American Standard Circuits, is an important book for a number of reasons. The most important reason is right there in the title; it is from the fabricator’s perspective. Besides explaining all aspects of thermal management—from thermal vias and metal-core boards to mixed technology—this book also describes the various applications of thermal dielectrics, their properties, and their incorporation into the actual fabrication of PCBs.
