One of the major concepts in electronics is the printed circuit board or PCB. It’s so fundamental that people often forget to explain what a PCB is. Electronics have come a long way. A journey that started with vacuum tubes and relays got its way into silicon and ICs. It became more prevalent in consumer goods. Therefore, there is always pressure to reduce the size and manufacturing costs of electronic products. This drove manufacturers to look for better solutions.
Sierra Circuits will hold a two-day PCB design workshop led by PCB expert Robert Feranec on board layout design engineering for semiconductor manufacturing. The event will take place on May 17 and 18 at the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
During PCB West 2017, last month in Santa Clara, Sierra had the pleasure of meeting many speakers. We interviewed these PCB experts from Zuken, Cadence, Nano Dimension, Altium, Rogers Corp and AkroMetrix. They shared their best PCB tips to help you make the best choices when you design your boards.
Last month, Sierra Circuits attended PCB West at the Santa Clara Convention Center. We took this opportunity to meet with Ben Jordan, Senior Product Marketing Manager at Altium. Ben was present at the trade show to give a presentation entitled “Multi-Board PCB Design – A Different Boundary Value Problem”, which he summarized for us.
Following PCB West, Sierra Circuits decided to sponsor AltiumLive 2017. On Tuesday, Sierra’s team flew to San Diego to attend the software company’s very first annual PCB design summit. And for a first time, the least we can say is that it was incredible!
During PCB West Exhibition Day, Sierra met Humair Mandavia, Chief Strategy Officer at Zuken. After his joint interview with Simon Fried, CBO of Nano Dimension, we discussed 3D PCB designing, and Zuken’s product, CR-8000 with him.
