The Orange County Chapter of the IPC Designers Council will hold a Lunch ‘n’ Learn event on April 25, 2019 in Irvine, California. Guest speaker Natasha Baker, CEO and founder of SnapEDA, will give a presentation titled The Top 5 Symbol & Footprint Mistakes That Even Professional Engineers Make.
When creating libraries, standards are crucial for maintaining consistency, accuracy, and reliability. Yet even with rigid standards in place, mistakes inevitably creep into such a detail-oriented process.
Attendees will learn about the five mistakes that even professionals make when creating component libraries. Delving far beyond the basics, this presentation looks at the more gnarly errors that trip up engineers. For example, we all know to double-check our pin mappings, but what about how you’ve interpreted the component’s orientation in the datasheet?
Misinterpreting a component's top view for its bottom view is one of the top causes of faulty boards. Drawn from our community of 200,000 engineers, we hope that these lessons will prevent costly prototype iterations and delays on your next project.
Finally, attendees will learn how to prevent these errors on their next designs, by, for example, bringing more verification into your processes through checklists and other solutions.
Reserve a spot on your calendar on Thursday, April 25 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm for this educational “Lunch ‘n Learn” event.
