Q4 Meeting

Date:         Thursday, October 24, 2019

Time:        11:30 am – 1:30 pm

Hosted by Footprintku

Lunch provided by Zuken

Topic: Best Practices for RF and Mixed Technology PCB Design    

Successful design of modern, complex mixed-technology PCBs is an ever-evolving task. As technologies change, techniques employed by designers must evolve accordingly. The aim of this session is to show how designs can be done as correctly as possible on the first attempt. Doing so has been repeatedly found to yield good results from simulations and testing, with minimal design modification required. Regards of the mathematics and simulations that may be employed, strict adherence to best practices is most likely to make the board “just work”.

Speaker: Scott Nance, Director of PCB Layout, Optimum Design Associates

Scott is a veteran designer with over 30 years of experience and a breadth of knowledge in all aspects of PCB design. Scott came to Optimum in 2005, and has created multiple boards utilized for NASA and the military. Scott has also used his talents as a designer to create PCBs for audio, aviation, and consumer electronics industries. In 2013, Scott represented Optimum as a featured speaker at PCB West 2013, one of the industry’s largest tradeshows and authored the article, “A Whole Lot of Switchin Goin On”..
