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.
