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.

This Month in Design007 Magazine: What Did You Expect From Me, Anyway?

05/14/2020 | Todd Westerhoff, Mentor, a Siemens business
As engineers, we work in the middle of a (usually long) process chain. It’s sort of like working on an intellectual assembly line—we get requirements and data as input, perform our particular task, and then provide our output as requirements and data to the next person on down the line. It seems easy enough. So, why is it that so many of the requirements we’re supposed to meet and so much of the data we receive is downright bad?

EMA President Manny Marcano: EDA Tools Are Essential
