Cascade Chapter of IPC Designers Council Meeting April 3


Reading time ( words)

The first quarterly IPC Designers Council Chapter Meeting for 2019 will be held April 3. There are a few changes this year that should make it easier for attendees to make it to the meetings.

The meetings will still be held at Lake Washington Institute of Technology-Kirkland Campus (LWIT) but the meetings have been moved back to an evening time slot. And there is no charge for this event, although donations are greatly appreciated.

This first chapter meeting will be on Wednesday April 3, 2019 from 6-8 pm in room A102. The topic for this meeting will be a roundtable discussion with three topics chosen based on feedback from our last survey. 

Discussion topics include:

  1. Cutting Edge Design techniques
  2. IPC Standards
  3. Materials and Processes

The Executive Board will be there to help guide and share their knowledge and experiences. The Executive Board has gathered over 100 years of experience combined, so attendees will be sure to learn something invaluable. Please join these great discussions and bring your experiences, ideas and knowledge on these topics.

Dinner is covered, so just sign up on the Cascade DC website and join your peers and co-workers.

XNC Format: Gerber Takes Data Into the Future

05/20/2019 | Denis Morin, Karel Tavernier, Jean-Pierre Charras, and Marius Matioc
The problem is that so many NC files are of deplorable quality because the NC format was never designed as a data transfer format. It has always been a machine driver and contains all sorts of information that a drilling machine needs, but that is irrelevant and confusing for data exchange.

Learning to Be More Flexible: Case Studies on Improving FPC Design

05/14/2019 | Todd MacFadden, Bose Corporation
As miniaturization requirements force manufacturers to pack more functionality into ever-smaller packages, it becomes more difficult to conform to IPC construction recommendations. Achieving robust FPCs requires frequent, iterative interaction internally among the mechanical, electrical, and PCB design teams, as well as with the fabricators and assemblers. The sooner in the design cycle you can engage the supplier and assembler, the better.

Technically Appropriate Material Choices are Key to Design Success

05/16/2019 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Materials are no longer a passive part of the design; they play an active role in the manufacturability, reliability, and speed of a PCB. I-Connect007’s Nolan Johnson and Mike Creeden, founder of San Diego PCB Design, discuss several key characteristics that designers should consider in their material selection process.
