IPC to Hold Online Course on Introduction to PCB Design


Reading time ( words)

IPC will be holding a six-week online program that introduces participants to the concepts and skills required to create real-world designs that comply with IPC standards.

Taught by an IPC-certified industry expert with more than 25 years of experience in the field, the Introduction to PCB Design I will focus on front-end design concepts such as schematic capture, library parts creation, basic electrical engineering concepts, and documentation.

The 12-session course, to start on July 6, will include a final project to deliver a solid foundation in schematic capture, library creation and documentation. IPC also offers a suite of design courses—from fundamental schematic capture to rigid flex boards, to military and aerospace applications. For more information, visit IPC's PCB design training courses.

‘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.
