Reading time ( words)

Meet Dana Korf, one of our newest I-Connect007 columnists! Dana’s columns will focus on IPC-2581 as well as PCB front-end tooling, data quality, DFM processes, etc.

Currently the principal consultant at Korf Consultancy LLC, Dana Korf works with companies to improve PCB fabricator front-end engineering processes. He also works with OEMs and ODMs to create design rules and technology roadmaps, assist with supplier selection/qualification, and reduce DFM cycles. Dana previously worked in China for over seven years at Multek in Zhuhai as senior director of manufacturing engineering and NPI and at Huawei Technologies in Shenzhen as director of PCB technology where he was responsible for PCB technology ranging from mobile phones to RF antennas, base stations, and high-speed digital servers and switches; before that, he worked for Samina-SCI, HADCO, and Zycon as director of product engineering. He has been awarded the IPC President’s Award, chaired many high-speed IPC committees, and was a co-chair for the iNEMI Data Convergence project, which has become IPC-2581. Dana graduated from Washington State University with a BSEE, and he enjoys following college and professional football and golf.

CES 2020: Here We Are Again

01/07/2020 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
Here we are again at what is probably the largest and most fascinating technology event globally—CES. It is hard for me to believe that as a post-semi-retirement activity for me, I have been attending and writing about CES for over 20 years. The much progress that has taken place is immense, and the rate of change has also accelerated.

Calumet Electronics and Averatek Team Up on A-SAP

12/02/2019 | Nolan Johnson, PCB007
Nolan Johnson talks with Brian Hess of Calumet Electronics and Mike Vinson of Averatek about the new, insertable additive processes that the companies are working on together to help factories running primarily subtractive processes to quickly convert to very high-density interconnect (HDI) features, including trace and space from 2.5-mil line and space to 1-mil line and space and below.

Vertical Conductive Structures, Part 4: Tuning Your Signal Performance

11/18/2019 | Joan Tourné, NextGIn Technology BV
The objective of this article is to demonstrate the possibility of using a stitching element as an alternative to the point-to-point connections that are used with traditional via technology. Point-to-point connections have the best performance in terms of signal integrity (one via less in the connection that distorts the signal). A via is mainly a capacitive element that causes signal loss/ dispersion.
