Tim’s Takeaways: What More Do We Need to Know?

Tim Haag, First Page Sage

Although it’s been more years than I care to admit, I still remember very clearly the class on careers that I was required to take in junior high school. On a table in the front of the class were several boxes filled with all sorts of different job cards that a student would search through to learn about different professions. Each card listed the schooling and experience required for that particular job, its expected responsibilities and duties, and an estimated salary. Our assignment was to choose a handful of these cards that interested us, study them, and then list the reasons why we would or wouldn’t pursue those jobs as a career. As you might have guessed, I blew the assignment.

Sensible Design: Encapsulation Resins—PU vs. Epoxy

Beth Massey, Electrolube

Most resin systems in use today are extremely complex products with elaborate chemical formulations. Process characteristics and final properties are usually adjusted by the manufacturer to suit the customer’s requirements, and this necessitates a great deal of skill, knowledge, and experience. Yet resin technology is an often-overlooked area in electronics manufacturing. Over the past few years there have been several major developments in material formulation and utilisation that have resulted in extremely effective new products being brought to the market. Beth Massey takes the helm this month.

Nolan’s Notes: UHDI—Raising Awareness and Interesting Questions

Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007

It was over lunch on the second day of the recent IPC Symposium on Advanced Packaging when I asked a question that triggered an interesting discussion about advanced packaging and ultra high density interconnect. While these two technologies are distinct, they are also symbiotic; it takes both to make either successful. As the symposium delivered on its agenda, the inter-relationship between those two technologies became crystal clear.

A Fight to the Physics

Lately, we’ve heard quite a few design experts say, “PCB design is all about physics. Designers should focus more on understanding the laws of physics and less on circuit theory.” Perhaps designers should return to the fundamentals of electrical and electromagnetic theory—pioneers such as James Maxwell, Georg Ohm, and Joseph Fourier...
