In this issue, we discuss some of the challenges, pitfalls and mitigations to consider when designing non-standard board geometries. We share strategies for designing odd-shaped PCBs, including manufacturing trade-offs and considerations required for different segments and perspectives.
The Standards of Design
Our expert contributors discuss how PCB designers can utilize standards to save time and money, not to mention frustration. We also spotlight the newly updated version of the IPC Checklist, a handy guide that illustrates which standards cover which topics, from front-end design through assembly.

American Standard Circuits to Sponsor and Exhibit at AltiumLive 2020October 1, 2020 | American Standard Circuits
Estimated reading time: 1 minute
PCB fabricator American Standard Circuits will sponsor and exhibit at the upcoming AltiumLive 2020 Virtual Summit. The show, moving to a virtual platform this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will be held from Tuesday, October 6 through Thursday, October 8, 2020.
This year’s AltiumLive Virtual Summit includes:
- Three days packed with free interactive electronics education and networking
- Live sessions, expert panels and Q&A with electronics industry experts
- Live demo of what’s coming in Altium Designer 21
- Virtual expo
- Interactive virtual tours of manufacturing facilities with Q&A
- Daily happy hour sessions
- Engineering stories and interviews
American Standard Circuit’s President Anaya Vardya noted, “AltiumLive is a fantastic opportunity for users to learn how to better their design tools with the advice of industry experts while networking with fellow users. It’s a great way for us as a PCB fabricator to speak with board designers in person and discuss how we can help them to design the best boards possible ensure its always right the first time. We’re excited to be both a sponsor and an exhibitor of this informative and fun annual event.”
Register for AltiumLive and be sure to stop by American Standard’s virtual booth to chat with an expert to learn more about getting the best boards possible.

As the workforce continues shifting to the next generation and the lack of appeal for manufacturing careers persists, we feel it’s important to share the voices of those who have chosen manufacturing as their career. We believe this will raise awareness and inspire others to consider manufacturing as a strong and viable career path.
SEMI, the industry association serving the global electronics design and manufacturing supply chain, applauded the first award of U.S. CHIPS and Science Act incentives to strengthen the United States semiconductor industry ecosystem.
TT Electronics, a leading provider of global manufacturing solutions and engineered technologies, announced today that one of its Asia electronics manufacturing facilities has received approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), through its premarket approval (PMA) supplement evaluation process, to manufacture Class IIa devices on behalf of global medical OEM customers.
Mycronic AB has received an order for an SLX mask writer from an existing customer in Asia. The order value is in the range of $7 - $9 million. Delivery of the system is planned for the third quarter of 2024.
It makes sense to optimize your board using design for manufacturability (DFM) techniques. But applying DFM best practices can be confusing without formal training. The results are designs that are often incomplete, poorly designed, or too complex. When these issues arise, your PCB manufacturing partner rejecting the design can be considered a best-case scenario because it means they have your back. If your design is simply dropped into an automated queue without concern for manufacturability, the output can be a batch of unusable boards.
