PCB West Attendance up 10.4% YOYSeptember 23, 2015 | UP Media Group
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
Last week’s PCB West show attendance rose 10.4% year-over-year, to more than 1,900 attendees, UP Media Group has announced. It was the annual PCB industry trade show’s highest turnout in over a decade.
Show registration was up 9.2% from 2014, as PCB designers, fabricators and assemblers turned out for the largest Silicon Valley-based trade show for the PCB industry.
The most popular sessions included common PCB design errors and signal integrity, with more than 100 attendees packing each of those presentations. More than 30 designers underwent IPC certification during the conference as well.
The sold-out show floor featured more than 100 companies occupying nearly 95 booths, and exhibitors were uniformly enthusiastic about their leads from the consistently busy show.
PCB West was held September 15–17 at the Santa Clara (CA) Convention Center. It included a three-day technical conference consisting of nearly 70 presentations, a one-day exhibition, featuring the PCB industry's leading vendors, and an array of free technical sessions.
Overall, more than 1,900 printed circuit board designers, fabricators and electronics assemblers, managers and suppliers attended the trade show, UP Media Group said.
"This year’s show was characterized by steady, often heavy traffic from start to finish,” said Mike Buetow, editorial director of UPMG. "There was a lot of interest from the design side in signal integrity presentations, and the free assembly sessions were a positive and well-received addition to the technical conference."
PCB West 2016 will take place in September 2016 at the Santa Clara (CA) Convention Center.

Panasonic’s Darren Hitchcock spoke with the I-Connect007 Editorial Team on the complexities of moving toward ultra HDI manufacturing. As we learn in this conversation, the number of shifting constraints relative to traditional PCB fabrication is quite large and can sometimes conflict with each other.
In my last column, I discussed cutting-edge innovations in printed circuit board technology, focusing on innovative trends in ultra HDI, embedded passives and components, green PCBs, and advanced substrate materials. This month, I’m following up with the products these new PCB technologies are destined for. Why do we need all these new technologies?
