Reading time ( words)

"What do you expect from me, anyway?" How many times have you asked your customer or fabricator that question? You’re not alone. Almost everyone involved in PCB design and manufacturing—especially fabricators—has had to deal with unmet expectations. This month in Design007 Magazine, our experts discuss the expectations of technologists throughout the design cycle, the ramifications of not meeting expectations, and how to define requirements so that unmet expectations are (eventually) a thing of the past.

It’s tough enough achieve the results you expect when designing and manufacturing rigid PCBs. But flexible circuit designers face even more hurdles, and in three dimensions. This month, in our Flex007 section, our flex circuit experts discuss various ways to meet expectations upstream and downstream, and what to do when results just don’t match the requirements.

When you start a new design, do you begin tracking costs right away, or do you wait until you have a functioning product before you start looking at the dollars and cents? Chris Young begins cost-aware design before the design cycle has even begun. Andy Shaughnessy and Nolan Johnson recently interviewed Chris, an engineer with The Goebel Company and founder of Young Engineering Services, and asked him to explain his approach to design economics.

Publish Your Work, Become an Industry Leader

I recently met with Bert Simonovich, founder of Lamsim Enterprises, to discuss a new mentorship program and panel discussion at DesignCon, where veteran authors of technical papers mentor new authors through the process. Bert explained the benefits of publishing technical papers and shared Wayne Gretzky’s advice for any engineers or technologists who are considering publishing their technical work.

When Your Fabricator Is Late
