IPC Offers Course on PCB Design for Extreme Environments


Reading time ( words)

IPC—Association Connecting Electronics Industries—has announced an online training course that addresses specific challenges encountered in the design of products for service in severe conditions.

The PCB Design for Extreme Environments course, to be held every Monday and Wednesday (from July 5, 2021 to August 11, 2021) will present challenges such as the effects of abrasive particles, positive and negative temperatures, pressure, moisture, and corrosives such as salt water, acids, and bases in designing PCBs. The class also focuses on the impact of these designs on manufacturing and assembly techniques, documentation, and manufacturing file generation.

Taught by an IPC-certified industry expert with 25+ years of experience in the field, this six-week program utilizes interactive webinars, on-demand recorded class sessions, job-specific exercises, and team projects to facilitate mastery of the key concepts required by circuit board designers.

‘The Trouble with Tribbles’

06/17/2021 | Dana Korf, Korf Consultancy
The original Star Trek series came into my life in 1966 as I was entering sixth grade. I was fascinated by the technology being used, such as communicators and phasers, and the crazy assortment of humans and aliens in each episode. My favorite episode is “The Trouble with Tribbles,” an episode combining cute Tribbles, science, and good/bad guys—sprinkled with sarcastic humor.

IPC-2581 Revision C: Complete Build Intent for Rigid-Flex

04/30/2021 | Ed Acheson, Cadence Design Systems
With the current design transfer formats, rigid-flex designers face a hand-off conundrum. You know the situation: My rigid-flex design is done so now it is time to get this built and into the product. Reviewing the documentation reveals that there are tables to define the different stackup definitions used in the design. The cross-references for the different zones to areas of the design are all there, I think. The last time a zone definition was missed, we caused a costly mistake.

Why We Simulate

04/29/2021 | Bill Hargin, Z-zero
When Bill Hargin was cutting his teeth in high-speed PCB design some 25 years ago, speeds were slow, layer counts were low, dielectric constants and loss tangents were high, design margins were wide, copper roughness didn’t matter, and glass-weave styles didn’t matter. Dielectrics were called “FR-4” and their properties didn’t matter much. A fast PCI bus operated at just 66 MHz. Times have certainly changed.
