PCB Designer and Instructor Kelly Dack Joins EPTAC


Reading time ( words)


Kelly Dack, one of the electronic industry's most consummate printed circuit board designers, industry supporters and interviewer of the trend setters in the market has joined EPTAC Corporation to support the growth efforts of EPTAC’s IPC Designer Group, lead by Gary Ferrari.

As an IPC CID Designer Instructor, Kelly shares more than his personal experience as a PCB Designer. His connection to the electronics industry as an interviewer for I-CONNECT007’s exclusive event coverage, “REALTime with…”, allows him to query and share perspectives from some of the industry’s most dynamic and influential personalities.

With over thirty (30) years of industry expertise in aerospace, medical, telecom and the gaming industry, Kelly has been responsible for overseeing extensive design projects from initial concept, to complete fabrication and packaging. His career experiences span a myriad of CAD design tools and numerous technical standards, some of which he continues to support developmentally today.

“We should never stop learning in this industry,” comments Kelly as he begins this collaboration. “I have always thought that the best way to learn at times is to teach, and working with this Design Group at EPTAC and conveying our knowledge to the students is both exciting and immensely gratifying, not only for me, but for the designers we have worked with.”

“We are delighted that Kelly has joined our efforts to support the design community.” commented Mark Pilkington, President of EPTAC. “Being able to bring Kelly into our growing fold of talent only helps to support the industry as it works to develop new programs and spread the vast technical expertise to so many that are eager to learn.”

Excerpt: The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to…Flex and Rigid-Flex Fundamentals

06/25/2018 | Dave Lackey and Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
The design process is arguably the most important part of the flex circuit procurement process. The decisions made in the design process will have a lasting impact, for better or worse, throughout the manufacturing cycle. In advance of providing important details about the actual construction of the flex circuit, it is of value to provide some sort of understanding of the expected use environment for the finished product.

APCT Moves into Rigid-Flex with Cartel, Cirtech Acquisition

06/18/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy
When I spoke with APCT President Steve Robinson a year ago, he said he was interested in adding flex and rigid-flex capabilities, and working closely with designers and engineers. With the recent acquisition of Cartel and their subsidiary Cirtech, APCT now has a flex and rigidflex facility, along with military and aerospace certifications. At DesignCon 2018, I asked Steve to discuss these acquisitions and what they mean for APCT and their customers.
