The European Institute of Printed Circuits (EIPC) and FED will be holding European PCB Designer Day at the Marivaux Hotel Congress & Seminar Center in Brussels, Belgium on June 21, 2017.
Design decisions have life-long project consequences, not just for technical performance but with the choices made by the designer at the outset often determining project success or failure.
Designer Day focuses on some of the more critical design factors including base material selection, performance modelling and testing, signal integrity, component layout tools and 3D structures, and embedded components.
The program is aimed at members of the PCB design community who wish to enhance their skills with a day of presentations by leading industry figures.
Mike Morando, PFC Flexible Circuits
Flex circuits are designed to solve electronic packaging and assembly problems, solve interconnection issues, assist in miniaturization, and provide a dynamic electro-mechanical solution. They are configured with repeatable conductors that foolproof assembly errors. Flex is used in designs where standard printed circuit boards, connectors and cable assemblies just don’t provide the right electrical or mechanical solution.
Dave Becker, All Flex
Any time you eliminate a component, hidden costs are eliminated, such as the cost of stocking, tracking and managing the supply chain for that part number. When designing an electronic package, don’t assume that you need a component for every connection point. Sculptured flex will give some options that can make your electronic package, lighter, less costly, more reliable, and take up less space.
