Lunch ‘n Learn Meeting of the IPC Designers Council OC Chapter


Reading time ( words)

Date: Wednesday, February 8, 2017
Time: 11:30 am - 1:30 pm 
Where: Clifton C. Miller Community Center in Tustin, CA
Topic: Advanced PCB Laminate Material Selection: What a designer needs to know about choosing the right material for your design 

Speaker 1: Michael Gay, Director, High-Performance Products, Isola Laminate Group

Designers are faced with many choices when trying to select the correct laminate type for your design. Many factors for performance: signal integrity, temperature range, microvia performance and cost come into play. Michael will share with us the various materials, properties and electrical characteristics to meet the requirements for your applications.

The presentation will cover various glass fabric and weave styles, resin technologies, pre-preg types, copper foil types and treatment properties. Also, Michael will discuss the many factors that influence the performance and signal integrity of high-speed design applications. Other important information such as laminate thermal performance, guidance for understanding data sheet laminate properties, electrical properties and laminate cost considerations will be presented to increase your knowledge and stimulate your questions for our expert speaker.

Speaker 2: Dan Diesel, Chief Information Officer and Business Strategist, Insulectro

Designers are also faced with selecting the correct laminate type based on the material availability and the need for speed of delivery for the program. Dan Diesel will share what is being done in the market to continue to drive faster delivery speed and providing information to the designer regarding material availability and lead times.

Reserve a spot on your calendar on Wednesday, Feb. 8 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm for this educational Lunch ‘n Learn meeting event.

IPC-2581 Revision C: Complete Build Intent for Rigid-Flex

04/30/2021 | Ed Acheson, Cadence Design Systems
With the current design transfer formats, rigid-flex designers face a hand-off conundrum. You know the situation: My rigid-flex design is done so now it is time to get this built and into the product. Reviewing the documentation reveals that there are tables to define the different stackup definitions used in the design. The cross-references for the different zones to areas of the design are all there, I think. The last time a zone definition was missed, we caused a costly mistake.

Why We Simulate

04/29/2021 | Bill Hargin, Z-zero
When Bill Hargin was cutting his teeth in high-speed PCB design some 25 years ago, speeds were slow, layer counts were low, dielectric constants and loss tangents were high, design margins were wide, copper roughness didn’t matter, and glass-weave styles didn’t matter. Dielectrics were called “FR-4” and their properties didn’t matter much. A fast PCI bus operated at just 66 MHz. Times have certainly changed.

DFM 101: PCB Materials

04/30/2021 | Anaya Vardya, American Standard Circuits
One of the biggest challenges facing PCB designers is understanding the cost drivers in the PCB manufacturing process. This article is the first in a series that will discuss these cost drivers (from the PCB manufacturer’s perspective) and the design decisions that will impact product reliability.
