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.

EIPC Technical Snapshot: 5G and Loss Minimisation

03/26/2021 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Bringing a specialised technical area into sharp focus, this month’s topic was “5G and the understanding of loss minimisation at the PCB level,” with papers on dielectric material, copper foil, and modelling solutions. The webinar was moderated by EIPC board member Paul Waldner managing director of Multiline International Europa, who admitted that he had managed to get a haircut especially for the occasion!

Happy’s DIY Solution to Chemical Control

12/09/2020 | Happy Holden, I-Connect007
I confess. I am a control nerd and highly analytical. My second degree is in EE control theory, and I see the world in terms of feedback loops and black boxes. Early in my career, I was volunteered for the technical programs for the California Circuits Association (CCA), which was created by my mentor Clyde Coombs. In discussions with fellow process engineers, it was clear that the chemical process controls that HP could afford and allow me to put in place were not able to be duplicated by much smaller PWB shops.
