Nine Dot Connects Offers Comprehensive Class on PCB Process


Reading time ( words)

Nine Dot Connects has developed a three-day training class called “PCB Fundamentals” in an effort to bring to light the entire PCB process, from specification to and including manufacturing. It was developed so that anyone (designers, engineers, technicians, program managers, purchasing agents, etc.) who has anything to do with the PCB design process can participate and understand it.

The class is taught by instructors who have design experience. The exercises on each of the topics are thought provoking, designed to facilitate dialog in the class. This exchange of ideas and thoughts makes the class valuable to both the new designer and those have experience. This is not a design class and no EDA tool knowledge is required. It is focused on real best practices for make the PCB design experience efficient and fruitful. To find out more about this class, what it has to offer, or to register, please visit them here.

‘The Trouble with Tribbles’

06/17/2021 | Dana Korf, Korf Consultancy
The original Star Trek series came into my life in 1966 as I was entering sixth grade. I was fascinated by the technology being used, such as communicators and phasers, and the crazy assortment of humans and aliens in each episode. My favorite episode is “The Trouble with Tribbles,” an episode combining cute Tribbles, science, and good/bad guys—sprinkled with sarcastic humor.

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.
