Orange County Chapter of IPC Designers Council Lunch 'n' Learn Meeting July 19


Reading time ( words)

For our July Lunch ‘n Learn meeting, we’re going to explore the advances in embedded passives, which can benefit many designs today. We have two guest speakers with informative presentations to educate us on this important and growing technology trend. 

Date: Wednesday, July 19, 2017
Time: 11:30 am - 1:30 pm
Where: Clifton C. Miller Community Center in Tustin (Note the special location for this meeting)

Speaker 1: Bruce Mahler, Vice President of Ohmega Technologies, will present Embedded Thin Film Resistors—An update on Current Applications and Designs”

One of the PCB designer’s tools is embedded passives, which can free up routing area, reduce assembly, improve reliability, improve electrical performance, and for some designs, reduce the cost of the assembled board. OhmegaPly is an embedded resistive material that has seen growing use in a variety of electronic systems, including high-frequency RF circuits, MEMS sensors and heater elements.  This presentation will provide an overview of the thin film resistor technology including its production, product offerings and characteristics. Examples of current OhmegaPly designs will be reviewed and will be followed by a discussion of future trends for embedded resistors in PCBs.

Speaker 2: Jin-Hyun Hwang, Applications Development Engineer at DuPont, will present Improving Power Delivery Networks (PDNs) Using Polyimide-based Thin Laminates—What PCB Designers need to know about Buried Capacitance”

This presentation will provide an overview of the use of thin laminate products (i.e., buried capacitance, a pair of power/ground layer pairs) designed for the power distribution design options. The presentation will discuss the use of both 1-mil and 0.5-mil dielectric laminates and the benefits of each.  Buried capacitance layers can reduce the number of decoupling capacitors, free up design space, reduce noise and create higher reliability, along with many other benefits.  Example stack-ups from high layer-count PCBs used for server and telecommunications equipment will be shared. Also, process challenges at fabricators will be addressed.

Reserve a spot on your calendar on Wednesday, July 19 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm for this educational “Lunch ‘n Learn” meeting event.  

Location:
Clifton C. Miller Community Center
300 Centennial Way
Tustin, CA  92780 

Cost: The cost to attend this Lunch ‘n Learn event will be $10 at the door to help cover the lunch cost.  

Please RSVP no later than noon on Tuesday, July 18 

I look forward to seeing you there!

Birds of a Feather: PCB Carolina and the RTP Designers Council

01/10/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
At PCB Carolina 2018, I met with show founders Tony Cosentino, Randy Faucette, and Lance Olive, who are all employees at the Better Boards service bureau in nearby Cary. I asked the trio to discuss the show’s history, its relationship to the Research Triangle Park (RTP) North Carolina Chapter of the IPC Designers Council, as well as the show’s tremendous growth over the past few years.

Susy Webb: The History and Future of the Designers Council

01/02/2019 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
When we started planning this issue on the IPC Designers Council, I knew I’d have to speak with design instructor Susy Webb, a longtime DC member and currently an executive board officer. I asked Susy to discuss how she first got involved with the DC, why designers should join their local chapter, and what the future holds for this group.
