TECHNICAL PAPER: Novel Automatic Repair of Populated PCBs in a Cost-effective and Adaptive Way

02/21/2024 | Essemtec, a NanoDimension Division
Repair of soldered components is a constant necessity in the electronics industry. Product performance enhancement, damaged components, and exchange of wrong placed components are some of the motivations behind a repair. Dispensing and placing a 400 μm pitch component manually is very time consuming and could cause collateral damage to the already populated components. A novel automatic repair method and tools with no human interaction were developed. Learn about this method…

Elementary, Mr. Watson: Know the Tradeoffs With Embedded Designs

02/20/2024 | John Watson -- Column: Elementary, Mr. Watson
One of my great joys as a grandfather of eight is spending time with them at the park. It doesn't take too long until I'm getting stuck on a slide that is too small for me or on the seesaw, with me on one side and them trying to lift me. At that point, they learn some harsh lessons in physics and how heavy Grandpa really is. A seesaw is a relatively simple device, but it’s a great way to explain a rather complex concept in PCB design: design tradeoffs. Each decision made throughout a design comes with inherent pros and cons.

Every Designer Needs to Understand Embedded 

02/14/2024 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
IPC’s Kris Moyer teaches design techniques for embedding components, and he’s noticed an upswing in his students’ interest in embedded component design. We recently spoke with him about embedding component design: best practices, pros and cons, and when it makes sense for designers to start embedding.

The Shaughnessy Report: In Bed With Embedded

02/12/2024 | Andy Shaughnessy -- Column: The Shaughnessy Report
We’re always hearing about PCB technology running into a wall. On the design side, Moore’s Law hit one such wall. On the fab side, features are now so tiny that the traditional subtractive methods have hit another type of wall. And we see OEMs who never planned to use flexible circuits wind up embracing them, because rigid boards just won’t fit into a new product’s form factor. In the February 2024 issue of Design007 Magazine, our expert contributors lay down the foundation of knowledge that designers need to be aware of to make intelligent, educated decisions about embedded design.

Dive Into the Depths of Embedded Design in the February 2024 Issue of Design007 Magazine

02/08/2024 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
We’re always hearing about PCB technology running into a wall. On the design side, Moore’s Law hit one such wall. On the fab side, features are now so tiny that the traditional subtractive methods have hit another type of wall. Similarly, the popularity of embedded components is the result of technology hitting a wall, or a series of walls. In this month's issue of Design007 Magazine, our expert contributors lay down the foundation of knowledge that designers need to be aware of to make intelligent, educated decisions about embedded design.
