This is an easily digestible guide for individuals involved in the procurement or specification of conformal coatings, especially for PCBs that are required to perform in harsh environments. This book can help you find a safe path through the minefield of available coatings, while dispelling many commonly held myths and addressing a variety of critical issues.
Signal integrity issues remain a concern for many in the electronics industry. This micro eBook details the importance of eliminating signal integrity challenges. Written by signal integrity engineer Fadi Deek of Mentor Siemens, the chapters explore four possible signal integrity problems using an understanding of essential signal integrity principles.
This book, The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to…Secrets of High-Speed PCBs: Part 2, is a must-read, not just for designers, but for anyone involved with, or confused by, high-speed PCBs: purchasing agents, salespeople, marketing professionals, recent graduates, etc.
If you’re a PCB designer or design engineer, chances are you’re probably dealing with high-speed PCBs and their attendant issues. Part 1 of this book covers Specifying, Modelling and Measuring. Not just for designers, this book will appeal to buyers, salespeople, recent graduates and marketing professionals.

Flexible Circuit Technology, 4th Edition provides the basic knowledge required to design, manufacture and use flexible circuits while avoiding many of the potential problems that may be encountered by those who attempt to learn from their own experiences.
Reflow soldering of through hole components can simplify the entire assembly process for companies running tin/lead or lead-free and continue to maintain the quality and reliability of the products being built. The reflow-only process can also eliminate the cost and waste associated with wave and selective soldering.
The widespread use of new electronic components employing Ball-Grid Array (BGA), Chip Scale Packaging (CSP), and other evolving technology form-factors means new fabrication techniques must be used to create printed circuit boards (PCBs) that will accommodate parts with extremely tight lead pitches and small geometries.
PCB designers and design engineers currently see getting a design right the first time as a foreign concept. The trial-and-error design method has been the rule, not the exception, since the advent of transistor-transistor logic (TTL). This book helps designers get it the first time.
Solder has been a loyal servant of the electronics manufacturing industry for years; however, like any aging servant, the efficacy of solder has been waning as the industry looks to make products increasingly dense. in this book by Joseph Fjelstad, you will earn about a process that bypasses the use of solder entirely in this short introduction.
In the global economy that is today’s business environment, there are no guarantees. In this environment, the big continue to get bigger through acquisition or elimination of the competition. Never before has US manufacturing had to look over our shoulder as we do now.
