How do the decisions you make in the design process directly influence the reliability of your assembly?
Find out at the IPC Tech Ed Design for Excellence: DFM (design for manufacturing) DFR (design for reliability) DFA (design for assembly), which will be held on November 12, 2019, in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Here are the top five reasons why you should attend Design for Excellence:
1. Learn how PCB design affects fabrication costs, reliability and assembly.
2. Learn how often the pitfalls that can occur in assembly have a direct link to design.
3. Understand the impacts of design on process control issues; paste volume, SMT and PTH thermal shock, reflow warpage.
4. Study the impacts of component and PCB warpage/flatness on yields and reliability.
5. Spend the day with one of our most highly regarded instructors, Dale Lee, Senior Staff DFX Strategy Engineer, Plexus Corporation.
This day-long course is ideal for designers, manufacturing/process engineers, quality and reliability engineers and managers or technicians involved with the design, fabrication, assembly or testing of printed board assemblies.

Gary Carter of XPLM and Michael Ford of Aegis Software are heading a group tasked with combining the IPC-2581 standard, now referred to as Digital Product Model Exchange (DPMX), with IPC’s Connected Factory Exchange (CFX). In this interview, they discuss the benefits that can be expected when these standards are fully merged for both PCB designers and process engineers on the manufacturing floor.

I interviewed Gary Ferrari of FTG at the IPC High-Reliability Forum and Microvia Summit in Baltimore. Gary is a co-founder of the IPC Designers Council and a longtime advocate for PCB design and PCB designers. We discussed the crucial role that PCB designers play in the entire electronics development process, and how IPC and the Designers Council are helping to educate and inform the next generation of designers.
