With topic of new equipment, the January 2018 issue of PCB007 Magazine has published and is now available for download.
First, to bring in the new year, we’ve made a few changes to our magazines. You may have noticed that our name has changed from The PCB Magazine to PCB007 Magazine. Not only did we update our magazine’s name, we refreshed the interior pages of the publication, as well. As an I-Connect007 publication, PCB007 Magazine fits nicely with our other publications, which also carry through with the naming convention starting this month: SMT007 Magazine and Design007 Magazine. We hope you enjoy the fresh new look.
As new equipment gets more sophisticated and costly, determining equipment needs has become far more complicated. Choosing wisely—and correctly anticipating your and the market’s needs—has never been more critical. Our experts are well equipped to give us their professional perspectives on just what to consider when evaluating new equipment.
Check it all out this month in PCB007 Magazine, now on the virtual newsstand and available for delivery in your e-mailbox each month by subscribing here.
You can also download the pdf version here for future reference.

The material toolbox idea first came up when I saw the IPC appendix list for standard 1-ply stack-ups. The idea is to make a very simple bill of materials, specifications and notes, and possibly use the same prepreg/resin in the laminate and in the core.

We are about to begin the transition from the present cellular standard 4G LTE to the next generation, 5G. As in the past, most people will wonder, “What does 5G mean to me, and what is LTE anyway?” After all, if you can make your connection reliably and you can send and receive data at reasonable speeds, why should you really care?
Besides being an excellent history book into one of the most fascinating companies in the world, it is also a great business book. Full disclosure, I wanted to read this book because I wanted to know the Facebook story. I did not expect any of the lessons in this book to apply to me and my own small business or the small businesses that I work with, but I was wrong. The book is filled with valuable lessons that can be applied to any company, no matter the size.
