Orange Co. Designers Council Chapter Meeting with SMTA Nov. 1


Reading time ( words)

The Orange County chapter of the IPC Designers Council will hold its next meeting in conjunction with the LA/OC SMTA chapter. The meeting takes place at the SMTA 8th Annual Expo & Tech Forum event in Long Beach on Thursday, November 1, 2018.

There will be 50+ vendors with table top displays who are sponsoring this event. Three technical sessions will be presented:

11:00AM - 11:30AM
Technical Session 1       
Material Management 4.0   
Speaker: Dr. Bill Cardoso, CEO of Creative Electron
Over the past years the electronic assembly industry has focused on the development of Industry 4.0, a standard communication protocol that allows production equipment to dialogue. This communication protocol will be a key enabler to improve the quality and efficiency of the production line. This is achieved by creating a feedback loop between inspection and production, thus allowing problems to be identified and corrected as early as possible in the manufacturing line. As a result, the overall cost of manufacturing is reduced as yield rates increase. This presentation will introduce Material Management 4.0. More than a set communication protocol between machines that count electronic parts and the machines that store them. From x-ray parts counters to fully automated and intelligent storage towers, Material Management 4.0 embraces the overall infrastructure that needs to be in place to realize an accurate, fast, and efficient methodology for inventory control.

1:00PM - 1:30PM
Technical Session 2                     
Challenges in PCB Design             
Speaker: Vern Wnek, CID, Technical Marketing at Mentor Graphics
The PCB Design process can be as simple as drawing schematics, doing the layout of the board, and providing the fabrication information to the manufacturing vendor. In this session, we will discuss a few topics that illustrate how technology and the complexity related to the PCB Design process has evolved in recent years and how Mentor solutions can help to overcome the challenges in PCB Design.

2:00PM - 2:30PM
Technical Session 3                     
An Intelligent DFM Approach to PCB Manufacturing
Speaker: Patrick McGoff, Marketing Development Manager at Mentor Graphics
PCB complexity continues to accelerate. It seems we used to be able to speak in terms of a simple progression of technology, but today we know there are advances in materials, construction, manufacturing processes and component technology that multiply the complexities of PCB manufacturing. With such a myriad combination of factors, it makes for very challenging PCB design reviews for manufacturability. However, just as the PCB technology has advanced, so has DFM software. Best practice companies use the intelligence in the PCB design data to drive their DFM analysis for more accurate, comprehensive and consistent results across users. In this session we will discuss how to use the intelligence in the design data to your PCB manufacturing advantage.

Automation and the Smart Factory: Introduction to Industry 4.0

05/13/2019 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
There’s a lot of talk about automation, but I find that there is very little available on automation planning. This is one of my specialties. I started by studying for an MSEE in control theory, which went well with my bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering because I specialized in process control and IC manufacturing.

Smart Design Data Is Essential for Industry 4.0 Manufacturing

05/10/2019 | Patrick McGoff and David Wiens, Mentor, a Siemens business
Almost all of the conversation regarding Industry 4.0 is centered on the manufacturing floor, which is where the effect of the initiative is most felt initially. Little attention is given to the starting data for manufacturing—the data that comes from design. However, you can’t have smart manufacturing if your process begins with dumb data. As Pink Floyd said, “You can’t have your pudding if you don’t eat your meat!”

Nano Dimension Offers Update on Dragonfly 3D Printer a Year After Launch

04/01/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
The Nano Dimension Dragonfly 3D printer arrived in much fanfare a little over a year ago. The company has been selling them to customers around the world, many of whom are using them to print antennas, sensors, and PCBs. At AltiumLive in Munich, I asked Product Manager Robert Even to discuss what they’ve learned in the year since the Dragonfly debuted, and some potential uses for 3D printing technology.
