'Printed Circuits Handbook' Features New Chapter by Andy ShaughnessyMarch 30, 2016 | I-Connect007
Estimated reading time: Less than a minute
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.
“With the publication of the seventh edition, the Printed Circuits Handbook reaches out from its traditional emphasis on manufacturing and materials to address issues of engineering, design, reliability, and printed circuit supply chain management,” said Coombs. “Anchored by a chapter on electronic design automation and printed circuit design tools by Andy Shaughnessy, this edition provides material not available anywhere else.”
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.
Siemens Joins Semiconductor Education Alliance to Address Skills and Talent Shortage in Global Semiconductor Industry02/29/2024 | Siemens Digital Industries
Siemens Digital Industries Software announced today it has joined the Semiconductor Education Alliance to help build and nurture thriving communities of practice across the integrated circuit (IC) design and Electronic Design Automation (EDA) industries, from teachers and schools to universities, publishers, educational technology companies and research organizations.
At DesignCon, the I-Connect007 Editorial Team met with Brad Griffin, product marketing group director for the System Analysis Group at Cadence Design Systems. Brad explains how this analysis tool enables designers to address SI and PI issues early in the design process, before they become costly errors, and why he believes his late co-worker Dennis Nagel would be proud to see his efforts come to fruition.
Sondrel, a leading provider of ultra-complex chips for leading global technology brands, announces that it has secured two new contracts to supply Design Consultancy Services for a Network processor chip and a Radio Transceiver chip.
With the seemingly endless ways that electronic products are worming their way into our lives, what was once “nice to own” is increasingly considered indispensable. The capabilities of these products have been driven by relentless improvements at every level of the manufacturing chain, from individual transistors (which are approaching Angstrom levels) to systems the size of buildings supporting Bitcoin mining and increasingly distributed AI products.
