Free eBook Guides Readers to Data Package Perfection


Reading time ( words)

Hundreds of PCB designers have downloaded The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Producing the Perfect Data Package micro eBook. Join this growing community of smart designers by exploring this comprehensive guide on how to perfect the hand-off from designer to fabricator.

This book is part of I-Connect007’s ongoing series, The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to…, which is specifically dedicated to educating PCB designers and serves as a valuable resource for readers seeking the most relevant information available. Written by Mark Thompson of Prototron Circuits, Producing the Perfect Data Package has everything you need to know to create a complete, accurate design data package.

In Prototron’s CAM department, Mark Thompson has seen it all. Many data packages he receives from PCB designers are either inaccurate, incomplete, or both, often putting the project on hold. Mark is passionate about educating his customers so that they can produce a perfect data package every time; now, he’s sharing this information with the PCB design community.

“Mark does an outstanding job detailing what needs to be included in the handoff between the board designer and fabricator,” said UltraCAD Design Founder Douglas Brooks, Ph.D. “Understanding and following his advice will lead to a smooth transition between these two functions. This book should be required reading for every designer.”

Kelly Dack, CID+, CIT, EPTAC, adds, “Mark Thompson is not afraid to ask for what he needs from a customer to start a job with the end in sight. In fact, he does the industry one better in this book by telling you what a PCB fabricator needs to get the complex job done right. Much appreciated!”

Turning ‘Garbage In, Garbage Out' into ‘Good In, Good Out’

03/23/2021 | Tamara Jovanovic, Happiest Baby
In the PCB design cycle, it is so easy to unintentionally introduce “garbage” into your system. Unless you have time to extensively check everything you bring in from an external source, it is very likely that something will not match up with your design data. In the end, this means you’ll have to put more work into your design and basically reverse-engineer a part that was supposed to save you time and effort.

Karen McConnell: Recipient of the IPC Raymond E. Pritchard Hall of Fame Award

03/11/2021 | Patty Goldman, I-Connect007
"I heard about IPC when I started a new job at UNISYS after graduating college. I moved from ASIC design to printed circuit boards," said Karen McConnell after being inducted into the Raymond E. Pritchard Hall of Fame. "At the time, in the late ’80s and early ’90s, there were rumors going around that printed circuit boards were going to disappear, and ASICs were going to take over the world. But something in printed circuit boards fascinated me. I minored in robotics in college as an electrical engineer and the data used to fabricate, assemble and test the boards is actually all robotic language. I was hooked."

The Key to Eliminating Bad Design Data: Constant Vigilance

03/09/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect007 editorial team recently met with Jen Kolar and Mark Thompson of Monsoon Solutions to discuss ways to eliminate bad data from the design process, whether that be from CAD libraries, parts vendors, chip makers, or customers themselves. They key in on some problems and obstacles that allow incorrect data into the design cycle, and then highlight possible solutions.
