Newbie in North Carolina: Local SMTA Event
I-Connect007's Jonathan Zinski attended the SMTA Carolinas Expo and Tech Forum on May 15. Featuring numerous local companies who do not do not always attend larger trade shows, the event offered great value, with its smaller environment contributing to more in-depth conversations.
















  

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

What is the Cost of Field Falures? What are the costs of field failures? Regardless of their industry or product, every PCB designer has the choice to pay for quality processes now or pay for failure resolution later. Read the blog which discloses the true cost of quality—both good and bad—so that perceived savings during design and production don’t turn into a bigger loss in the field. It also includes best practices for preventing field failures by investing wisely in planning for quality, vetting suppliers, utilizing quality programs, and more. Read the blog now.

 

Faster Board Speeds Demand Constraint-Driven Design
Using powerful constraint techniques can be a double-edged sword. While the design process is made much safer by including constraints, it is all too easy to over-constrain the design and make it impossible to complete routing and placement. Even paper design guidelines can make products uneconomic to produce unless a great deal of engineering knowledge is applied during the design.

  


The Institute of Circuit Technology Annual Symposium 2018
ICT technical director Bill Wilkie is well-known for choosing notable venues for Institute of Circuit Technology events, and his choice for this year’s Annual Symposium was the National Motor Museum, located in the village of Beaulieu in the heart of the New Forest, a national park in the county of Hampshire in Southern England. The region is known for its heathland, forest trails and native ponies.
