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.”

Nine Dot Connects has certainly blazed an interesting trail. The company started out as an Altium reseller, but in less than a decade, Nine Dot Connects has also become a design service bureau and a provider of PCB design instruction, training, and consulting services. I recently interviewed Paul Taubman, technical services director for Nine Dot Connects. We discussed the company’s expansion from VAR to service bureau and content provider, and the changing landscape of PCB design instruction.
