The Shaughnessy Report: Mechatronics—Designers Need to Know It All

07/12/2024 | Andy Shaughnessy -- Column: The Shaughnessy Report
When I was growing up, the term “know it all” was considered an insult. But PCB designers and design engineers of the future will need to know almost everything about the board, the system, and the final product. Tomorrow’s designers will need to have a solid understanding of not just electronic design, but mechanical design and software development as well. This is where mechatronics comes in.

IPC-2581 Consortium Welcomes Big Names

07/11/2024 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
At PCB East, I spoke with Hemant Shah, chair of the IPC-2581 Consortium. In this interview, we discuss the new associate and corporate members of the consortium, including Panasonic Connect, Beta CAE, Quilter.ai, and Apple. Shah explains how EMS providers can benefit from IPC-2581, which is now connected to the IPC-CFX manufacturing format. He also lays out a plan for skeptical PCB designers to migrate over to IPC-2581 slowly, and not necessarily quitting Gerber “cold turkey.” Are you handing off data in a digital format yet?

Mechatronics: Design007 Magazine, July 2024 Issue

In this month’s issue of Design007 Magazine, our expert contributors discuss the advent of mechatronics in PCB design, the challenges and opportunities this creates for circuit board designers, and the benefits—to the employee and the company—of becoming a mechatronics engineer.

Expansion and Growth: You Can’t Do It Alone

07/10/2024 | Prashant Patel, Alpha Circuit
Building a new PCB facility takes strong partnerships with your suppliers. I quickly learned that we could not build our new facility alone. We would need to find and develop relationships with what would become trusted vendor partners.

Remembering George Dudnikov

07/10/2024 | Marcy LaRont, PCB007 Magazine
George Dudnikov, the PCB industry veteran and icon, passed away last week at the age of 66. Born in The Bronx, he was a New Yorker to his core. I met George and his lovely wife, Susan Hughes, when we all worked at Hadco. At that time, they had already been at Hadco for years and were much respected and well-known throughout the PCB industry.
