Getting to Know Your Designer
In this issue, we examine how fabs work with their design customers, educating them on the critical elements of fabrication needed to be successful, as well as the many tradeoffs involved. How well do you really know your customer? What makes for a closer, more synchronized working relationship?
In this issue, the biggest names in PCB manufacturing share their economic outlook for the upcoming year and beyond. As you will see, they were all bullish on our industry, but there was some apprehension as well. No one wants to get burned by another the supply chain disruption.

How much money and labor are wasted annually because of PCB designs that are over-constrained or otherwise needlessly complex? It had to be millions of dollars, or maybe even tens of millions. Over constraining happens for a variety of reasons: increasing signal speeds, faster rise and fall times, and shrinking silicon technologies. How can designers avoid creating PCBs that are needlessly complex but still able to meet today’s technological and manufacturing requirements?
In this month’s issue of Design007 Magazine, our expert contributors explain how to design PCBs without making them complex and over-constrained—whatever the level of technology. We also discuss the effect your decisions and tradeoffs have on design complexity, as well as the need to thoroughly understand how electrical and manufacturing limitations can lead to over-constraining your board.

On the cusp of another IPC APEX EXPO, we focus on how bare board fabricators can maximize their time and investment at the show. We visited with Matt Kelly, IPC chief technologist, and Julia Gumminger, IPC professional development and events manager, as well as Udo Welzel and Stanton Rak, the chairs of the technical program committee, to discuss the technical depth and breadth that the 2024 show will bring to fabricators and professionals all along the supply chain.
Like any great tech industry event, IPC APEX EXPO pushes us out of our busy 24/7 manufacturing bubbles. It forces us to pay attention to things that are important but not always present in our day-to-day lives. But there is so much to see and do. This issue of PCB007 Magazine previews many of the important events taking place at the show this year and highlights some changes and opportunities. Let us help you map out your show plan. This issue is focused on the PCB fabricator’s show experience and how you can get the most from your valuable time and investment in attending the show. So, buckle up. We are counting down to IPC APEX EXPO 2024.
