Design Innovations and Best Practices Featured at IPC APEX EXPO 2011

Jan 27, 2011

Providing the latest information on design innovations and best practices, the IPC Designers Forum and several design-focused educational programs and activities will be held at IPC APEX EXPO 2011, April 10–14, 2011, in Las Vegas.

"Today's technologies and electronics have pushed PCB design into a whole new realm," says Dieter Bergman, IPC director of technology transfer, "A designer in today's environment must first, know all his or her choices in materials, processes, requirements, quality and parts; and second, understand how, in combination, those choices impact the final design’s performance and reliability."

Bergman will kick off the IPC Designers Forum on Monday, April 11, with a discussion on the future of design. Other design experts who will present at the half-day program include: Charles Pfeil, Mentor Graphics, on Effective BGA Fanouts; Mike Tucker, CIT, Colonial Circuits, with A Look At CAM Departments and Board Fabrication Basics; Alan Johnson, CID+, Premier EDA Solutions (UK), on International Design; Gary Ferrari, CID+, FTG Circuits, discussing Design Standards; Happy Holden, Foxconn; presenting Advances in HDI Technology to Promote Design Innovations and Lower Costs; and Rick Hartley, CID, L-3 Avionics Systems, Inc., on Balancing Quality and Cost.

In addition to the IPC Designers Forum, several professional development courses held April 10–11 and 14, focus on meeting the informational needs of today’s designers.

IPC APEX EXPO 2011 Courses include:

  • PD-01 Building Long-Term Reliability in PCBs: Materials, Plating Processes and Innerlayer Treatments for Lead-Free Assembly Requirements

  • PD-07 PCB Fabrication Basics: Process and Specification

  • PD-08 Design for Manufacturing

  • PD-10 Final Finishes — Compatibility with Lead-Free Assembly

  • PD-11 Designing with Flex in Mind: Next Generation

  • PD-14 Signal Integrity Problem Prevention: High-Speed Routing & Termination

  • PD-21 Basics of PCB Design

  • PD-36 Control of EMI Coupling Mechanisms

  • PD-39 Design and Assembly Challenges of Ball Grid Arrays (BGAs) and Bottom Terminations Components (BTCs) in a Lead-Free World

  • PD-41 Designing PCB Stackups to Balance Signal Integrity Against Manufacturability

  • PD-43 Designing Complex Boards

  • PD-50 Flexible and Rigid-Flex Circuit Design Principles and Fabrication

IPC PCB designer and advanced designer certification programs (CID and CID+) will also be held during IPC APEX EXPO. The two-day workshops will be held on April 8–9 with the final exam being given on April 10.
