May 2020 Design007 Magazine Available Now


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.

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.
