T-Tech, the manufacturer of the Quick Circuit line of rapid prototyping systems, has released IsoPro 3.2 software. This is the first major software release this year.
From user feedback our customers asked for an Isolation program which could produce Isolation data in G-Code format. IsoPro 3.2 provides these services allowing a company the opportunity to manufacture printed circuit boards on the Quick Circuit, in house, within an hour from the time the schematic and layout are completed.
The Contact-by-Touch software feature for the Quick Circuit QCJ5 is new and improved. You can now calibrate the depth of cut with the tool touching off the surface of the material in an average of five seconds from the time the tool has changed. This kind of precision calibration has never been achievable on a rapid prototyping machine before.
The real-time milling progress within IsoPro 3.2 is greatly enhanced. This allows the operator to automatically align multilayer PCBs in their lab. From over 10,000 customer installations in over 78 countries, scientists, electrical engineers and technicians now have an improved capability to produce prototype circuit boards in an environmentally friendly fashion.
For more information about IsoPro 3.2, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-370-1530.
You can also learn more about IsoPro 3.2 at PCB West in the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California. T-Tech is located in booth #500.

When I was a sophomore in college, I had an amazing professor for Physics II: Electricity and Magnetism. He made a series of complex topics fun to learn, and his personality and way of teaching were almost tailor-made for the way I like to learn. He explained new concepts through practical examples, and always kept students engaged throughout the class, making sure everyone understood the lectures. Physics II was an engineering prerequisite, and I didn’t mind taking the class since I really enjoyed the material. However, I did find myself wondering a few times, “Will I ever use any physics in real life?” It turns out that the answer to the question was yes.

There’s designing the “perfect” circuit board and then there’s designing a board that is “perfect for manufacturing.” While seasoned designers and design engineers understand many of the nuances, PCB fabricator Sunstone Circuits has just published a new book specifically for new designers who have the knowledge of design but are still learning what it means to get the board manufactured. Sunstone’s Matt Stevenson takes the reader through a series of situations that should help clarify what’s happening in the fabrication process and how to adjust a board design to be better suited for manufacturing.
I-007eBooks is excited to announce the release of the latest title in its series for designers, The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Designing for Reality. This book covers both written and unwritten rules for how to create a realistic, manufacturable design.
