Why Switch? AD vs. Mentor Graphics PADS® - Live Demo!
Risk Vs. Reward During the recent IPC APEX expo, there was a lot of discussion about SAP, or semi-additive PCB processes. As with any new technology in PCB manufacturing, there were people that are excited to jump right in and start designing with much finer feature sizes and work through the inevitable changes to the traditional thought process. Others are in a let’s wait and see mode and of course there are a few skeptics there as well. There were a few stand Read Article
Using an IPC-2221 PCB Clearance Calculator for High Voltage Design Unsure of your conductor spacing requirements in high voltage PCBs? An IPC-2221 calculator can help. PCB design and assembly standards aren’t there to constrain your productivity. Instead, they’re there to help create uniform expectations of product designs and performance across multiple industries. With standardization comes the tools for compliance, such as calculators for certain design aspects, processes for auditing and inspection, and much Read Article
