Advanced Circuit Boards -workshop
– it’s all about the substrate!
IMAPS-UK, with the support of the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), will hold a one day workshop/colloquia on the topic of Advanced Circuit Boards, where you can learn about specialist substrates that can meet the needs of advanced applications and new technologies.
This workshop will cover all aspects of PCBs and other substrates for advanced applications where miniaturisation, shape, current handling, speed, signal integrity and challenging environments are affecting your application.
5 key reasons to attend:
- Future of PCBs – from additive manufacturing to embedded die
- PCB design theory – Power, Data/signal integrity, speed…. and component joining
- Materials selection – Ceramic, polyimide/flex, FR4, silicon or PTFE?
- Pushing the envelope – the latest design rules
- Case studies from PCB users, designers and manufacturers
