'Printed Circuits Handbook' Features New Chapter by Andy Shaughnessy


Reading time ( words)

The seventh edition of the Printed Circuits Handbook is now available, with a new chapter by Andy Shaughnessy, managing editor of The PCB Design Magazine and PCBDesign007.

Edited by Clyde F. Coombs and Happy Holden, this marks the most comprehensive edition of the book to date. Previous editions have focused primarily on processes, but the new edition boasts first-ever sections on supply chain management and PCB design. Shaughnessy contributed the chapter on PCB design and analysis software tools.

Coombs published the first edition of the Printed Circuits Handbook in 1967, and it is widely considered to be the Bible of the PCB industry. To order your copy, click here. watch Clyde Coombs’ interview at IPC APEX EXPO, click here

Shaughnessy has been covering PCB design and EDA since 1999, and he has been with I-Connect007 since 2007.

XNC Format: Gerber Takes Data Into the Future

05/20/2019 | Denis Morin, Karel Tavernier, Jean-Pierre Charras, and Marius Matioc
The problem is that so many NC files are of deplorable quality because the NC format was never designed as a data transfer format. It has always been a machine driver and contains all sorts of information that a drilling machine needs, but that is irrelevant and confusing for data exchange.

Learning to Be More Flexible: Case Studies on Improving FPC Design

05/14/2019 | Todd MacFadden, Bose Corporation
As miniaturization requirements force manufacturers to pack more functionality into ever-smaller packages, it becomes more difficult to conform to IPC construction recommendations. Achieving robust FPCs requires frequent, iterative interaction internally among the mechanical, electrical, and PCB design teams, as well as with the fabricators and assemblers. The sooner in the design cycle you can engage the supplier and assembler, the better.

Technically Appropriate Material Choices are Key to Design Success

05/16/2019 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Materials are no longer a passive part of the design; they play an active role in the manufacturability, reliability, and speed of a PCB. I-Connect007’s Nolan Johnson and Mike Creeden, founder of San Diego PCB Design, discuss several key characteristics that designers should consider in their material selection process.
