PCB seminars for electronics design and manufacturing companies

11 February 2004 News

Following excellent feedback from its previous seminars, EDA Technologies has announced that once again it will bring the latest technologies and information through two up-to-date design seminars in April. These seminars will benefit all persons and companies involved in today's demanding high-speed digital designs and electronics manufacturing and testing.

The four-day 'High-frequency digital design and PCB layout seminar' will be delivered by world-renowned expert Robert Hanson from the USA, and is an intensive training program. The course is aimed at the electronics design engineer and the PCB layout engineer involved in today's high-speed design arena.

About the courses

'Design first-time for compliance' is what every designer should know. The course provides tools for recognising the problems with any proposed high-speed design. Design rules and design processes are taught that ensure the PCB will function properly at the prototype stage. The course emphasises cost-competitive design without sacrificing high-speed integrity. The last day focuses on up-to-date key issues of EMI/EMC.

The three-day 'SMT manufacturing and test seminar' is a must-have for every company involved in SMT manufacturing and testing. The information presented in this seminar will provide all members of an SMT implementation team with the technical background and practical insights into what works and what does not work in designing, manufacturing, and testing electronic assemblies.

This seminar is aimed at managers, engineers and operations staff involved in: system design and packaging, manufacturing process development, PCB design, test engineering, quality and reliability control, contract manufacturing.

As the trend toward increased PCB complexity continues, there is a growing need to address testing issues at increasingly earlier stages of the design process. With high-density boards comes the challenge of 1 GHz device speeds and reduced physical access for testing, fault diagnosis and repair. Manufacturing high-quality reliable products requires concentrated effort and good insight into available methodologies. The SMT manufacturing and test seminar defines methods used by successful manufacturing companies to achieve rapid prototypes, efficient design/manufacturing/test integration and minimise factory costs and just-in-time (JIT).

When and where

14-16 April 2004: SMT manufacturing and test seminar.

19-22 April 2004: High-frequency digital design and PCB layout seminar.

The seminars will be held in Centurion at the Waterfront Protea Hotel ( www.centurionconferencecentre.co.za. Special Combo airfare/accommodation/car hire packages are available from SAA Traveler, 011 978 1111.
