New Book From Isola Highlights Importance of Material Selection


Reading time ( words)

In The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to... High Performance Materials, the latest release from I-007eBooks, readers will learn how to overcome challenges associated with choosing the right material for their specific application. Author Michael Gay of Isola provides a clearer picture of what to know when determining which material is the most desirable for which products.

Key questions answered:

  • Why is PPO resin better than epoxy resin for electrical performance?
  • Why could flat glass fabrics reduce the skew and ease for laser drilling?
  • Why is very low-profile copper foil preferred for high-speed applications?
  • What is the impact of raw materials on data rate and signal integrity testing?

PCB materials and DFM expert Mark Thompson says, “I love this book, particularly the sections on the effects of the glass weave, the history of laminate, and the difference between Dk and effective Dk. I highly recommend it for any designer or engineer looking to better understand laminate.”

A Textbook Look: Signal Integrity and Impedance

05/18/2022 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Believing that I knew a bit about signal integrity and controlled impedance, I was pleased to take the opportunity to connect with an educational webinar that I hoped would extend my knowledge. In the event I was surprised at how little I actually knew, and the webinar was an excellent learning opportunity. The webinar was introduced and expertly moderated by Anna Brockman of Phoenix Contact in Germany.

Designing in a Vacuum Q&A: Carl Schattke

05/11/2022 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Not long ago, I caught up with Carl Schattke, CEO of PCB Product Development LLC and a longtime PCB designer, for his thoughts on “designing in a vacuum.” As Carl points out, if you follow PCB design best practices, knowing the identity of your fabricator is not a “must-have.” He also offers some communication tips for discovering the information you do need, including one old-fashioned technique—just asking for it.
