Herbstman, Holden and Kowalewski to Lead Denmark HDI Workshop


Reading time ( words)

This HDI workshop takes place Oct. 27-28 in Copenhagen, and it’s not only highly informative and educational, but it’s hands-on. First, attendees will be given an introduction to the principles of HDI and introduced to Mentor Xpedition, which is the platform used in this workshop.

This is NOT a Mentor Graphics tool training class—the principles can be used on all PCB design platforms. Therefore, you do not have to know Xpedition to attend this workshop. 

Once you know the principles and the system, the fun begins! The rest of the time, attendees will be able to experience HDI capabilities first-hand by working at a workstation to practice connecting three advanced BGAs using HDI/microvias and then routing these HDI breakouts.

Target Audience 

This workshop is for all PCB layout designers who see the need to achieve 2X to 4X higher board density, better electrical performance, or even those who just need to reduce the size or thickness of a finished board. 

This class is essential for those who use HDI, but it is not limited to HDI designers. So, if you want to learn how to use HDI or just be better at it, come join us and learn from the best. 

This is also a great networking opportunity; designers will be able to participate in a free networking dinner on the October 27 at the Hilton Copenhagen Airport Hotel. Here, you will be able to talk to the other participants, as well as instructor Steve Herbstman and assistants Happy Holden and Andy Kowalewski. 

Focus is on the 6 Advanced Concepts In HDI Design:
1. Where to place the microvias
2. Creating boulevards with BGA breakouts
3. Elimination of through-hole with the stackup
4. Horz-vert microvia routing pairs
5. Automation of hand routing
6. Finer traces/spaces & via/pads 

What you will learn:
1. Stackup and its critical role
2. Grounding scheme
3. Determining package types, pin counts, BGA pin spacing, etc.
4. Determining routing rules, line widths, grid patterns, etc.
5. Pin escaping and establishing routing channels and boulevards
6. Routing with constraint editor and via placement

The fee for this class is €1,600 excluding VAT. This includes the course book, labs, and the networking dinner on Oct. 27.

Real Time with… AltiumLive 2020: A Novel Idea—Design With Manufacturing

10/07/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Andy Shaughnessy speaks with Jeremie Waller, senior electrical engineer at Quantel USA, about the panel he’ll be participating in during AltiumLive 2020 on design with manufacturing. He and panelists Gerry Partida of Summit Interconnect and Greg Zhiraldo of Advanced Assembly will discuss why designers need to see their fabrication and assembly providers as true partners, not just customers, and why communication is such a vital part of the design process.

APCT Moves into Rigid-Flex with Cartel, Cirtech Acquisition

06/18/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy
When I spoke with APCT President Steve Robinson a year ago, he said he was interested in adding flex and rigid-flex capabilities, and working closely with designers and engineers. With the recent acquisition of Cartel and their subsidiary Cirtech, APCT now has a flex and rigidflex facility, along with military and aerospace certifications. At DesignCon 2018, I asked Steve to discuss these acquisitions and what they mean for APCT and their customers.

HDI PCBs: Make the Right Choice from Design to Volume

12/20/2017 | Chris Nuttall, NCAB
Modern electronic products are expected to offer evermore advanced functions, while the products themselves are becoming increasingly smaller. There are two key factors for the successful production of HDI PCBs: first, making the right choices at the design stage, and then carefully choosing the factory that can support the specific technical demands of the project. NCAB Group COO Chris Nutall explains.
