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.

Mark Thompson: What Designers Need to Know about Fab

06/08/2018 | Dan Beaulieu, D.B. Management Group
Mark Thompson wants to help PCB designers. He’s seen it all in CAM support at Prototron Circuits: the incomplete or inaccurate data packages, boards that are unnecessarily complex or over-constrained, and so much more. Mark just returned to writing his popular Design007 Magazine column, The Bare (Board) Truth, which addresses questions such as, “What happens to your design at CAM?” I asked Mark to explain why it’s so important for designers to communicate with their fabricators, and why they need to get out of the office and visit a board shop every now and then.

Jan Pedersen: CircuitData Enhances Current Data Formats

04/11/2018 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
During the Design Forum at IPC APEX EXPO 2018, Jan Pedersen, senior technical advisor for the PCB broker Elmatica, gave a presentation on CircuitData. The language is designed to help facilitate other design data transfer formats such as Gerber, ODB++, and IPC-2581. Jan spoke with Managing Editor Andy Shaughnessy and Contributing Technical Editor Happy Holden about how this open language works with the existing data formats, as well as the need to eliminate paper documents from design process, and how the industry can help shape this open-source language.
