I-Connect007 Launches Thermal Management with Insulated Metal Substrates eBook


Reading time ( words)

I-Connect007 is excited to announce the release of the latest title in our micro eBook design series: The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Thermal Management with Insulated Metal Substrates.

The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… is an ongoing book series specifically dedicated to educating PCB designers, and serves as a valuable resource for people seeking the most relevant design information available. 

Considering thermal issues in the earliest stages of the design process is critical. Written by Didier Mauve, sales and marketing manager at Ventec International Group, and Ian Mayoh, technical support manager, this book highlights the need to dissipate heat from electronic devices.

The authors provide essential information required to understand the thermal, electrical, and mechanical characteristics of insulated metal substrate laminates. The book also aims to aid PCB designers in the selection and specification of materials for particular applications, which will contribute to more reliable and cost-effective designs.

Alun Morgan, Chairman at EIPC, describes the book as, "A comprehensive tour through the world of thermal management. Required reading for designers and end users wishing to understand the science and practice of using insulated metal substrate materials."

Readers will develop a comprehensive awareness of the physical realities of insulated metal substrates and their applications in the thermal management of electronic assemblies.

Martyn Gaudion on Signal Integrity Modelling and Stackup Tools

12/11/2018 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
The accuracy of signal integrity modelling continues to improve, and stackup tools are becoming widely used, which now include material suppliers' datasheet information. During the recent electronica show in Munich, Germany, Martyn Gaudion, managing director at Polar Instruments, explained how Polar often serves as a bridge between PCB design and fabrication, and why educating his customers is so critical.

Impact of Serpentine Routing on Multi-gigabit Signal Transmission

11/29/2018 | Chang Fei Yee, Keysight Technologies
Serpentine is a technique to minimize skew or misalignment of differential pairs. The number of segments and intra-pair spacing of serpentining impacts the high-speed signal transmission. As the intra-pair gap is enlarged for serpentining, the characteristic impedance of the PCB trace in differential mode will rise. This leads to impedance discontinuity, signal reflection, and ultimately, attenuation. The signal attenuation is heavily dependent on the number of segments and intra-pair spacing of the serpentine.

Max Seeley’s PCB Design Career is No Fish Story

11/14/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
Max Seeley, senior electrical, PCB, and manufacturing engineer with 3M, was an instructor at the first AltiumLive event in 2017, and he made a return visit to this year’s event in San Diego. I asked Max why he decided to come back to AltiumLive this year and to share the story of his rather circuitous journey into PCB design, which included a turn as a custom aquarium builder. Everyone in PCB design has a different backstory.
