Orange Co. DC Chapter Meeting: PCB Cost Adders


Reading time ( words)

The Orange County Chapter of the IPC Designers Council will hold a "Lunch 'n' Learn" meeting on Wednesday, June 15 in Irvine, California. Guest speaker Julie Ellis of TTM Technologies will focus on PCB cost-driving factors that should be considered early in the design phase to save your company money.

A designer is faced with many challenges when planning your layout to achieve a balance of performance, quality and reliability versus cost. In this presentation, Julie Ellis of TTM Technologies will discuss the many factors that contribute to cost and explore the trade-off considerations for design optimization.

She will explore panel utilization, layer count, material selection, via structure choices, via-filling options, the impact of various sequential laminations, plating processes, surface finishes, scoring, milling and back drilling.  Attendees will learn various rules of thumb to help you make better choices for mitigating the cost of the boards you design.    

Reserve a spot on your calendar on Wednesday, June 15 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm for this educational “Lunch ‘n Learn” meeting event.

At PCB West, Zuken shared a booth with Nano Dimension. Zuken has been working with Nano Dimension for some time, and adding support for 3D printing and nanotechnology to its design tool platforms. I sat down with Zuken’s Humair Mandavia and Nano Dimension’s Simon Fried to learn more about this alliance, and to find out more about this odd-looking box being demonstrated in Zuken’s booth.

AltiumLive Summit—Munich, Germany, Part 1

11/07/2017 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Altium held a very successful AltiumLive PCB Design Summit in San Diego, California at the beginning of October for the benefit of their North American design community, and followed it three weeks later with a counterpart European event in Munich. And what an eye-opener it proved to be—literally hundreds of delegates, a superbly organised and managed programme, billed as a completely immersive two-day interactive design experience on a theme of learning, connecting and getting inspired.

Insulectro Teams with Isola to Address Signal Integrity Needs

11/06/2017 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCB Design007
Insulectro and Isola recently shared a combined booth during PCB West 2017. Insulectro has distributed Isola materials for years, and the companies wanted to focus on Isola’s line-up of high-speed, low-loss material sets. Insulectro’s Chris Hunrath, VP of Technology, and Norm Berry, Director of Laminates and OEM Marketing, sat down with me to discuss the challenges facing signal integrity engineers today, and some of the Isola low-loss, low-Dk materials that can help with their signal integrity requirements. You might find Chris and Norm speaking to a group of PCB designers near you.
