Siemens Webinar: Rigid-Flex Design Without Respins

Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine

Rigid-flex circuits have become almost ubiquitous over the past decade; most personal electronic devices contain at least one rigid-flex circuit. But there’s a downside to rigid-flex: Respins are almost a given with rigid-flex designs. And rigid-flex respins can be quite expensive, since this technology costs quite a bit more, on average, than flex or rigid boards.

In this free 22-minute on-demand webinar, Kevin Webb, an NPI technical marketing engineer with Siemens EDA, explains how using Valor NPI early in your rigid-flex design flow can help you reduce your rigid-flex respins, or possibly even eliminate them completely... More >

Fresh PCB Concepts: Auditing a Factory—When Everyone Wins in the PCB Supply Chain

Michael J. Marshall, NCAB Group

One of the most important activities when it comes to maintaining the best quality of PCBs is to be constantly evaluating partner factories. An important tool for this process is auditing those factories on a consistent basis. This includes its processes, procedures, working instructions, and checking upon how well the factory has understood and implemented demands to produce quality, reliable PCBs. If a deviation is found, allow the factory to take the proper steps to improve. When the factory responds, develops better processes and pushes the bar a little higher each time, that’s when we’re in a situation where we all benefit... More >
