Orange Co. DC Chapter Meeting: PCB Cost Adders


Reading time ( words)

The Orange County Chapter of the IPC Designers Council will hold a "Lunch 'n' Learn" meeting on Wednesday, June 15 in Irvine, California. Guest speaker Julie Ellis of TTM Technologies will focus on PCB cost-driving factors that should be considered early in the design phase to save your company money.

A designer is faced with many challenges when planning your layout to achieve a balance of performance, quality and reliability versus cost. In this presentation, Julie Ellis of TTM Technologies will discuss the many factors that contribute to cost and explore the trade-off considerations for design optimization.

She will explore panel utilization, layer count, material selection, via structure choices, via-filling options, the impact of various sequential laminations, plating processes, surface finishes, scoring, milling and back drilling.  Attendees will learn various rules of thumb to help you make better choices for mitigating the cost of the boards you design.
