Register Now for the EIPC Winter Conference Feb. 13-14

Reading time ( words)

Attending an EIPC Conference in the middle of winter is becoming a tradition. It joins many other traditions, nay even ancient customs, such as Beating the Bounds, which is still observed in some English and Welsh parishes.

Under the name of the Gangdays, the custom of going a-ganging was kept before the Norman Conquest. A group of old and young members of the community would walk the boundaries of the parish, to ensure that no farming was encroaching upon the common land upon which livestock could be grazed. They were usually led by the parish priest and church officials, to share the knowledge of where they lay.

It's the words “gang” and “old and young” which resonated, along with the sharing of knowledge. For “parish priest,” you might think of Alun Morgan, EIPC chairman, and for “officials” you could really only think of Kirsten Smit-Westenberg, who is the only official. True, EIPC has directors, but they are invariably busy tending their own flocks. 

So it would be really good if you could cut along to Rotterdam and join members of the PCB community and walk the boundaries of knowledge for a couple of days!

During the EIPC Winter Conference 2020, participants will learn how to meet and adapt to the changing needs of Europe and the global electronics market. Industry experts will explain the changes in the world-wide PCB supply chain for technology, materials and surface coating of printed circuit boards.

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.
