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.

Join fellow EMS leaders in the region on Oct 5, 2023 at 4:30 - 8:00 p.m. EDT to share industry pain points and solutions.
Join fellow EMS leaders in the region on Oct 5, 2023, 4:30 - 8:00pm EDT, to share industry pain points and solutions. Our focus for this meeting is how companies profitably reach the next level of revenue. Following a presentation on the current EMS market and revenue tiers in the industry, participants will discuss how to reach the next level and grow their business. Discussion will pull from direct experience, questions, and ideas. From there, the conversation goes where you, the leaders, take it. Every roundtable ends in unique takeaways.
Nan Ya Printed Circuit Board Corp. (Nan Ya PCB), a manufacturer of single-sided PCBs, HDI PCBs, and rigid-flex PCBs based in Taiwan, has posted unaudited sales of NT$3.37 billion ($105.52 million at $1=NT$31.97) for August 2023, up by 1.2% from the previous month, but down by 41.4% year-on-year.
So often when I talk to PCB shop owners, they ask me how they can be outstanding. How can they position their own company to stand out from the crowd? That’s because one of the issues PCB shops face these days is they all seem to be alike. While they used to be judged and differentiated based on performance, now they all have very good quality.
The road to recovery for personal computers (PCs) has been challenging coming off explosive years in 2020 and 2021, but signs of growth are finally returning. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Personal Computing Device Tracker, PC shipments are forecast to grow 3.7% year over year in 2024 reaching 261.4 million shipments.
