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.

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.
