Orange County PCEA Lunch and Learn Meeting September 1

Join the Orange County Chapter of the Printed Circuit Engineering Association (PCEA) for a virtual Lunch ‘n’ Learn meeting, sponsored by American Standard Circuits.

Scott McCurdy IPC PCB Design

The meeting will feature two presentations: 

First presentation: Next-Gen Line/Space Capability for PCB Designs
Speakers: Anaya Vardya and John Bushie, ASC, and Haris Basit, Averatek 

The need for increasingly complex electronics, combined with the obsolescence of larger component packages, is driving innovation to provide alternatives to the traditional subtractive-etch fabrication process that will provide circuit layers reliably, and repeatedly, with trace sizes of 25 micron or finer. 

A new process has been developed to handle cutting edge PCB requirements for products of the future.  American Standard Circuits is a licensee of Averatek’s A-SAP (Averatek Semi-Additive Process) which enables feature sizes of 25 micron (1 mil) and below, opening new possibilities and options for PCB designers to solve complex design issues.  This session will provide an overview of the A-SAP process. 

Second presentation: An Overview of Via Fill: Choosing The Right Type For Your Design Application
Speaker: John Bushie, ASC 

Many PCBs have requirements for Via Filling yet there are many different options that a designer can chose from depending on their application. Our speaker will present the different types of via fill and plugging methods and describe the pros and cons of the different available options.  The types of materials or plating used has an impact on fabrication, so cost implications will be presented with a goal of providing our audience a better understanding of which via filling choice is right for your design project. 

This is a great opportunity to elevate your PCB design skills!
