Reading time ( words)

We've all heard quite a bit of chatter about smart manufacturing over the years. Everyone who designs, fabricates, and assembles PCBs wants to get on the smart train. But what does this mean for PCB design data?

In this month's issue of Design007 Magazine, we ask our contributors to explain how designers and design engineers can take full advantage of smart technologies such as Industry 4.0 and IPC's Connected Factory Exchange (CFX).

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.

An Experienced Millennial on Hiring the Next Generation

04/24/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
During DesignCon, I met with Geoffrey Hazelett, VP of sales for Polar Instruments. Even though he has been in EDA for a few years, Geoffrey is still in his thirties, which makes him a youthful cherub in this industry. I asked Geoffrey what he thinks about the new PCB designers and EEs entering this field, and what more can be done to expose young people to the world of PCBs.

PCB Design Is All in the Family With Nicole Pacino

04/18/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I shared a flight with Nicole Pacino on the way to Altium Live in Munich, and she mentioned that her father was speaking at the show. I went down the list of speakers, and it turned out that her dad is Mike Creeden of San Diego PCB. In Germany, I asked Nicole to tell us about how she got into this industry, and what we could do to draw more young people into this career.
