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.

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

06/20/2018 | 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.

Field Trip: CID Class Sees How Flex is Made at Streamline Circuits

06/06/2018 | Kelly Dack, CID+, EPTAC
While I was teaching my CID class for EPTAC in Santa Clara, I learned that we were only a block away from Streamline Circuits. Streamline does a lot of military and aerospace work, as well as communications and industrial electronics. The company manufactures quite a bit of multilayer flex and rigid-flex circuits, in addition to rigid boards. This would make a great field trip for my CID class!

Show & Tell: IPC APEX EXPO 2018 is on the Books!

05/14/2018 | Happy Holden
I-Connect007's Happy Holden reviewed the recently concluded IPC APEX EXPO 2018. Among the highlights: Less than 10% of all new orders arrive at the PCB fabricator’s facility with complete, accurate design data. Most have missing or incorrect data.
