Orange Co. DC Chapter Meeting: PCB Cost Adders


Reading time ( words)

The Orange County Chapter of the IPC Designers Council will hold a "Lunch 'n' Learn" meeting on Wednesday, June 15 in Irvine, California. Guest speaker Julie Ellis of TTM Technologies will focus on PCB cost-driving factors that should be considered early in the design phase to save your company money.

A designer is faced with many challenges when planning your layout to achieve a balance of performance, quality and reliability versus cost. In this presentation, Julie Ellis of TTM Technologies will discuss the many factors that contribute to cost and explore the trade-off considerations for design optimization.

She will explore panel utilization, layer count, material selection, via structure choices, via-filling options, the impact of various sequential laminations, plating processes, surface finishes, scoring, milling and back drilling.  Attendees will learn various rules of thumb to help you make better choices for mitigating the cost of the boards you design.    

Reserve a spot on your calendar on Wednesday, June 15 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm for this educational “Lunch ‘n Learn” meeting event.

One of the biggest challenges facing PCB designers is understanding the cost drivers in the PCB manufacturing process. This article is the latest in a series that will discuss these cost drivers from the PCB manufacturer’s perspective, and the design decisions that will impact product reliability.

Solid Data Management Key to Accurate Quotes

11/30/2021 | David Gronner, PCB Technologies Ltd.
Data is omnipresent. At times it goes unnoticed, just waiting there for someone to collect, analyze, and make use of it to create value. Data that seemed irrelevant at the time might come in handy when you need to come up with a solution to a new challenge. When, for instance, you need a reliable quote that can accurately predict a product’s price, you need to base it on past actual operation machine time, raw materials cost, etc. Otherwise, guessing a new product’s price might result in unexpected spending, especially when it concerns sophisticated systems.
