IPC Designs for Excellence in Conjunction with PCB Carolina


Reading time ( words)

IPC offers a day-long technical education seminar, Design for Excellence (DFX): DFM (design for manufacturing) DFR (design for reliability) DFA (design for assembly), in conjunction with PCB Carolina November 12, Raleigh, N.C., at the McKimmon Conference and Training Center.

Providing a comprehensive review of pitfalls that can occur in assembly and how they often have a direct link to design, the seminar will be led by instructor Dale Lee, senior staff DFX strategy engineer, Plexus Corporation.

Geared toward designers, manufacturing/process engineers, quality and reliability engineers, and managers or technicians involved in the design, fabrication, assembly or testing of printed board assemblies, attendees will learn:

  • The effect of bare board choices on function and reliability of assembly
  • How PCB design complexity impacts on fabrication costs and reliability
  • Limitations of industry standards
  • PCB design effects on assembly: thermal balance, trace routing, via interconnection, Z-axis TCE
  • Impacts of component and PCB warpage/flatness on yields and reliability
  • Impacts of design on process control issues; paste volume, SMT and PTH thermal shock, reflow warpage

“There is a direct connection between the design of a device and complications that may occur in the assembly process,” said Brook Sandy-Smith, IPC technical conference program manager. “This course will shine a light on those opportunities for improvement, taught by a distinguished expert in the field.”
