White Paper Discusses the Latest PCB Manufacturing Data Formats


Reading time ( words)

Mentor Graphics has released a new white paper that discusses the new PCB manufacturing data exchange formats. In particular, the white paper focuses on ODB++, the complete PCB manufacturing exchange data format that contains all of the data required for defining a PCB product in manufacturing.

In the newest version of ODB++, content has been added based on input received from the thousands of people who use ODB++ and solutions-development partners worldwide. ODB++ Version 8 contains significant incremental improvements over the current mainstream version (ODB++ v7), and is designed to enable a smooth transition to higher levels of process integration and automation across the design/fabrication/assembly/test PCB flow.

Stacked Microvia Reliability: Ongoing Work and Upcoming IPC Conference

04/24/2019 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
One year ago, Happy Holden's review of the 2018 IPC High-Reliability Forum reported the presentation of J.R. Strickland and Jerry Magera, who described research at MSI Applied Technology into overcoming the risk of stacked microvia failures escaping standard quality assurance procedures. Their report provided a basis for the IPC white paper IPC-WP-023, which addressed reliability issues associated with stacked microvias and included data collected from several other printed circuit manufacturers.

Smart Factories: More Than Robots
