As feature sizes continue to shrink and we see more challenges popping up like thermal, it’s no wonder that physics has become a hot topic in some corners of the design community.
Are today’s PCB designers spending too much time studying Moore’s Law and not enough on Maxwell’s equations? In the November 2022 issue of Design007 Magazine, our experts explain why designers need to understand concepts like field effects as well as circuit theory, and how the disciplines work together symbiotically.

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.
I-007eBooks is excited to announce the release of the latest title in its series for designers, The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Designing for Reality. This book covers both written and unwritten rules for how to create a realistic, manufacturable design.

We recently spoke with Herb Snogren, an industry veteran and consultant with Royal Circuits tasked with leading the company’s ultra HDI efforts. Herb is co-chair of the IPC ultra HDI subcommittee, IPC D-33-AP. In this interview, Herb discusses the current state of UHDI, how designers and fabricators can get started working in this new frontier, and why the U.S. must invest in UHDI technology now to counteract Asia’s near dominance of the UHDI segment, which has left some of our critical industries vulnerable to supply chain disruptions.
