PCB Talk: SAP Evaluating From Design Perspective

January 26, 2022 | Tara Dunn, Averatek

Semi-Additive PCB fabrication processes add a new tool to the PCB designer’s toolbox. As with any new tool, there is a learning curve. To help shorten that curve and expand the growing body of knowledge, Tara Dunn speaks with Randy Chase, CID. He is the senior manager of PCB and Module Design at pSemi, a Murata Company.

Day One: It's Show Time!

January 25, 2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine

IPC APEX EXPO officially opens today, and as Crosby, Still and Nash once sang, “It’s been a long time coming.” The last live IPC APEX EXPO was held two years ago and was—for many of us—the last trade show we would attend before the pandemic hit. A lot has changed since then. But not everything has changed. After spending a few days watching the exhibitors set up, I have to say that it looks a lot like the show floor always does at IPC APEX EXPO. I was surprised at the amount of capital equipment on the floor. I thought that exhibitors might have scaled back their spending, afraid that attendance might be light, but I saw no evidence of that. Companies came here ready to strut their stuff!
