'Printed Circuits Handbook' Features New Chapter by Andy Shaughnessy


Reading time ( words)

The seventh edition of the Printed Circuits Handbook is now available, with a new chapter by Andy Shaughnessy, managing editor of The PCB Design Magazine and PCBDesign007.

Edited by Clyde F. Coombs and Happy Holden, this marks the most comprehensive edition of the book to date. Previous editions have focused primarily on processes, but the new edition boasts first-ever sections on supply chain management and PCB design. Shaughnessy contributed the chapter on PCB design and analysis software tools.

Coombs published the first edition of the Printed Circuits Handbook in 1967, and it is widely considered to be the Bible of the PCB industry. To order your copy, click here. watch Clyde Coombs’ interview at IPC APEX EXPO, click here

Shaughnessy has been covering PCB design and EDA since 1999, and he has been with I-Connect007 since 2007.
