Finally! A Book About PCB Stackups


Reading time ( words)

The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Stackups: The Design within the Design is the latest addition to I-Connect007’s comprehensive, educational library.

In this book, brought to readers by Siemens Digital Industries Software and I-007eBooks, author and stackups expert Bill Hargin discusses materials, laminate datasheets, impedance planning, and more. This book provides the reader with a broader understanding of stackup planning and material selection in an effort to comprehend what Hargin calls “the design within the design.”

Signal integrity expert and professor Eric Bogatin says, “I’ve been in involved in aspects of PCB manufacturing and design for almost 40 years, and even I picked up a few useful nuggets of knowledge from this book.”

Nokia Principal Engineer Joe Smetana agrees: “This is an excellent primer for people who are doing high-speed PCB design. It connects the dots between signal integrity and manufacturing.”

Physics, Electrical Engineering, and PCB Design

12/09/2022 | Tamara Jovanovic, Happiest Baby
When I was a sophomore in college, I had an amazing professor for Physics II: Electricity and Magnetism. He made a series of complex topics fun to learn, and his personality and way of teaching were almost tailor-made for the way I like to learn. He explained new concepts through practical examples, and always kept students engaged throughout the class, making sure everyone understood the lectures. Physics II was an engineering prerequisite, and I didn’t mind taking the class since I really enjoyed the material. However, I did find myself wondering a few times, “Will I ever use any physics in real life?” It turns out that the answer to the question was yes.

The Test Connection: Spreading the Word About DFT

12/07/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCB Design007
As signal speeds continue to increase and feature sizes decrease, PCB designers are beginning to pay greater attention to test and design for test (DFT) strategies. Bert Horner, president of The Test Connection in Hunt Valley, Maryland, is spearheading this drive to show designers the benefits of a solid DFT plan, as well as the downside of not having a test strategy. I met with Bert at PCB Carolina, where he was exhibiting and presenting a paper during the conference. We discussed his presentation, as well as why designers need to understand test and DFT issues, and why we need to see the PCB as one small—but very important—part of the entire system.

DownStream Flexes in Rigid-Flex

11/14/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
During PCB West, I caught up with DownStream Technologies co-founder Joe Clark and Senior Product Marketing Manager Mark Gallant. We discussed some of their latest tool updates, including a greater focus on bringing post-processing functionality, such as inter-layer analysis capability, to rigid-flex circuits. Joe also offered a look at global design trends going into 2023, as more engineers take on PCB designer roles while senior designers are retiring.
