Do you hand off perfect fab notes to your fabricator? According to CAM engineers, the most likely answer is “no.” But this isn’t about designers handing off incomplete data; the problem goes much deeper than that. In fact, we can’t blame designers for a situation that they didn’t create.

In the issue of Design007 Magazine, we shine a light on the process of creating fab notes, and define what should and should not go into a design data package. Preview or download your PDF copy today on the virtual newsstand and available for delivery in your e-mailbox by subscribing here.

A Sneak Peak with Jim van den Hogen

12/29/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Jim van den Hogen has been teaching PCB designers and design engineers about fabrication processes for decades. Twenty years ago, I had the opportunity to see a class of his at PCB West; even back then, the room was jammed with designers eager to learn more about DFM techniques. Now Jim is bringing his teaching expertise to IPC APEX EXPO 2023 this January with a similar class directed at PCB designers. I asked Jim to give us a sneak peek into his curriculum and to share what he hopes attendees will take away from his class, as well as his thoughts on how to best bridge the gap between design and fabrication.

Workflow Challenges in Fabrication

12/22/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Paul Cooke, the senior director of business development for Ventec International Group, is presenting a class at IPC APEX EXPO 2023 that looks at workflow challenges in fabrication, and the myriad drivers that can affect yield, reliability, and cost. Here he discusses the details of this Professional Development course, what he hopes attendees will take away, and why designers and design engineers would benefit from this class.

Sunstone’s Matt Stevenson Shares Insights From New PCB Design Book

10/27/2022 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
There’s designing the “perfect” circuit board and then there’s designing a board that is “perfect for manufacturing.” While seasoned designers and design engineers understand many of the nuances, PCB fabricator Sunstone Circuits has just published a new book specifically for new designers who have the knowledge of design but are still learning what it means to get the board manufactured. Sunstone’s Matt Stevenson takes the reader through a series of situations that should help clarify what’s happening in the fabrication process and how to adjust a board design to be better suited for manufacturing.
