I-007eBooks is excited to announce the release of the latest title in its series for designers, The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Designing for Reality.
This book covers both written and unwritten rules for how to create a realistic, manufacturable design.
Written by topic expert Matt Stevenson of Sunstone Circuits, this book covers the complete circuit board manufacturing process, taking readers on a virtual tour of the printed circuit manufacturing process, from choosing the right CAD tool, to additive/subtractive processes, and even touching on the art of PCB design.
Peer reviewer Duane Benson of Screaming Circuits, says, “I find that having a better understanding of the underlying process helps me create higher quality electronic designs. In this book, Matt Stevenson does a fantastic job of opening the hood and giving the reader that knowledge of the PC board fab process.”

There’s designing the “perfect” circuit board and then there’s designing a board that is “perfect for manufacturing.” While seasoned designers and design engineers understand many of the nuances, PCB fabricator Sunstone Circuits has just published a new book specifically for new designers who have the knowledge of design but are still learning what it means to get the board manufactured. Sunstone’s Matt Stevenson takes the reader through a series of situations that should help clarify what’s happening in the fabrication process and how to adjust a board design to be better suited for manufacturing.

HDI—high-density interconnect—designs require some different thinking on the part of the designer. One of the first things to consider is whether you need HDI, and if so, how much. The HDI option comes into play as soon as you purchase any components with 0.5 mm pin pitch. The number of these components and other specifications of your design will determine the amount of HDI you will need. Here’s a quick list of HDI options.

For this issue on ultra HDI, we reached out to Tara Dunn at Averatek with some specific questions about how she defines UDHI, more about the company’s patented semi-additive process, and what really sets ultra HDI apart from everything else. Do designers want to learn a new technology? What about fabricators? We hope this interview answers some of those questions that you may be having about these capabilities and what it could mean for your designs.
