IPC Standard 6013 Heading to Revision D


Reading time ( words)

Guest Editor Dick Crowe and Nick Koop, Senior Application Engineer at TTM Technologies, discuss the latest revision of the flex/rigid-flex standard that is underway. The flex/rigid-flex circuit industry is booming and in many cases North America is the preferred area for manufacture. Nick also encourages those with an interest to participate in IPC subcommittee activities. Not only can your company's voice be heard, but it is a great learning experience.

Designing with Ultra-Thin Flexible Printed Circuit Boards

07/04/2017 | Akber Roy, Rush PCB Inc.
Designing with flexible PCBs is not much different from doing the same with rigid boards, except that the designer must account for the mechanical complexity associated with flex circuits. For instance, a flexible PCB can tear if flexed beyond its capability during installation. Therefore, it is very important to create a mechanical model of the PCB and test it for a proper fit, before taking up the electrical design.

Deep Into Technology at Compunetics

05/24/2017 | Compunetics
There aren’t many printed circuit companies in my neck of the woods. There is one, however, that has always fascinated me, and that is Compunetics, in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Pittsburgh. Having worked with them on the electrophoretic photoresist, a PPG product, many years ago, it was great to stop by and catch up with CTO Tim Schmitt and Technical Applications Manager Jesse Ward, along with General Manager Burhan Capar, a relative newbie to the company.
