Cascade Chapter of IPC Designers Council Meets Dec. 7


Reading time ( words)

The Cascade Chapter of the Designers Council's next Lunch and Learn meeting will take place December 7 at the Lake Washington Institute of Technology-Kirkland Campus (LWIT).

This meeting we will cover flex fabrication, materials, and techniques as well as some do's and don'ts. Jerome Larez, an application engineer with MicroConnex, will be the guest speaker for this event.

With the ever-increasing emphasis on IoT (Internet Of Things), the demand for flex circuits and designs is increasing rapidly. This will be an opportunity to get helpful insights into flex fabrication and learn how to avoid some common errors made by flex designers.

Following the meeting, there will be Altium User Group meeting for anyone who is interested. Stop by and become part of the conversation as Product Marketing Engineer David Haboud meets with local users and other industry advocates to discuss some of the toughest “how to” and “why” questions surrounding Altium Designer and the PCB design industry.

Presentation: Flex Printed Circuit Fabrication 

Speaker Jerome Larez will focus on flex printed circuit (FPC) fabrication. He will be discussing common materials used in FPC fabrication, including stiffeners and coverlays. Jerome will outline FPC fabrication techniques, how to better communicate your design requirements to fabricators, and some of the do’s and don’ts for FPC design.

Reserve a spot on your calendar on Friday, December 7 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm for this educational Lunch and Learn event. The cost is $20 to cover the cost of lunch.

He further addresses the many considerations with adopting this useful technology.

John Michael Pierobon Discusses His Flex Design Class

10/01/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
If you’re new to flex design, you might want to check out an online course offered by All Flex, a flex fabricator. The course, Designing Flexible Circuits, was created by John Michael Pierobon. I asked John Michael to discuss his flexible circuit design course, and whether online curriculum can ever replace good old-fashioned live instruction.

Insulectro and DuPont Experts Talk Flex Design

09/25/2019 | Mike Creeden, CID+, Insulectro
I recently spoke with Insulectro’s Chris Hunrath and DuPont’s Steven Bowles at the DuPont Technology and Innovation Center in Sunnyvale, California. We discussed a variety of topics related to flex design, including the support structure that’s needed in flex design, the everchanging world of flex materials, and the need for working with a flex fabricator as early as possible in the flex design cycle.
