Rigid-flex: Designing in 3D
In this month’s issue, our expert contributors share their best tips, tricks and techniques for designing rigid-flex circuits. If you’re a rigid board designer considering moving into the 3D world of rigid-flex, this issue is just what the doctor ordered!
Simulation, Analysis, and AI
Getting today’s designs “right the first time” is critical, especially with costly advanced PCBs. Simulation and analysis software tools can help you in the fight to eliminate respins. They’re not magical, but they can predict the future of your design.
Advanced, Complex & Emerging Designs
This month, our contributors focus on designing PCBs with advanced, complex and emerging technologies. We investigate design strategies for boards that are on the cutting edge of technology, or crazily complex, or so new that designers are still writing the rules as they go.

IPC Issues Call for Participation for ECWC16, IPC APEX EXPO 2024June 8, 2023 | IPC
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
IPC is now accepting abstracts for technical paper presentations and technical posters for the Electronic Circuits World Convention 16 (ECWC16) at IPC APEX EXPO 2024, and professional development courses at IPC APEX EXPO 2024. The technical conference will be held April 9-11, and professional development courses will take place April 7-8, and 11, 2024, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif.
The industry’s premier conference and exhibition for the electronics industry, IPC APEX EXPO provides presenters and their companies with a notable and cost-effective opportunity to promote their expertise and gain visibility with key engineers, managers, and executives from all segments of the industry worldwide.
The Electronic Circuits World Convention (ECWC16) is an international PCB symposium held every three years, in different cities worldwide. ECWC provides a valuable platform to encourage knowledge sharing about the latest information on global PCB demand, PCB manufacturing processes, and to promote the domestic PCB industry in every country and every region.
To recognize exceptional achievement, the IPC Technical Program Committee (TPC) will select the top qualifying papers and one top poster for awards. Awards include “Best of Conference,” “NextGen Best Paper,” “Best Student Research Paper,” and “Best Technical Poster.”
“IPC is proud to be the host of ECWC16,” said Julia Gumminger, manager, IPC professional development and events. “We look forward to seeing the exciting new work from our colleagues in the global electronics manufacturing industry. Attendees of technical sessions will benefit from a broader perspective on what’s next in electronics manufacturing. Our professional development courses remain one of the strongest offerings at IPC APEX EXPO, where experts from all areas of the industry, including design, materials, assembly, processes, equipment, and Industry 4.0 share their expertise.”
For technical conference paper presentations and posters, ECWC16 and IPC seek abstracts that describe significant results from research experiments, highlight new techniques or materials, and/or discuss cutting-edge trends and challenges facing the electronics manufacturing industry. All submissions must be non-commercial, summarizing original and previously unpublished work covering case histories, research, and discoveries. Conference speakers are entitled to a free one-day conference pass for the day of their presentations. Papers will be published in a proceedings document, and both paper and poster presentations will be delivered in person at ECWC16 at IPC APEX EXPO 2024 in Anaheim. Deadline for abstract submissions is September 18, 2023.
For professional development courses, IPC seeks abstracts for three-hour sessions of live instruction covering all aspects of electronics manufacturing. Courses can be offered as one 3-hour session or two 3-hour sessions (offered as Part 1 & Part 2 for a total of 6 hours). Honoraria and travel expense stipends are offered to professional development instructors. Professional development abstracts are due August 28, 2023.

Amitron, a leading U.S.-based manufacturer of printed circuit boards (PCB), brings an additional 80,000 square feet of manufacturing space into the overall MIL-SPEC ecosystem with high automation, and the latest equipment technology and processes for military and aerospace applications.
Based on the wisdom of 50 years of PCB manufacturing at Sunstone Circuits, this book is a must-have reference for designers understanding the PCB manufacturing process as it relates to their design. Designing for manufacturability requires understanding the production process fundamentals and factors within the process that often lead to variations in manufacturability, reliability, and cost of the board.
A great example of AI’s power at pattern matching images in medicine is the Google Automated Retinal Disease Assessment (ARDA) program, which turns retinopathy screening—once a test performed by an ophthalmologist—into a technician-level task. Given that only a small percentage of patients test positive for retinopathy, the AI-based assessment means that ophthalmologists now only see the patients who test positive on the app.
