The WI SMTA Chapter invites you to participate in the PCB Fabrication Basics Workshop, presented by Jim Vanden Hogen on Wednesday July 13th.

Jim breaks down the entire multi-layer PCB fabrication process making it easy to understand.  Jim will cover terminology, industry standards and all the fabrication steps.  He will explain how PCB design affects all the fabrication processes in step by step detail.  As he explains the details, physical samples from many of the PCB fabrication process steps are made available to the participants.  The pros and cons of various laminates, solder masks and surface finishes will be reviewed. Panel layout will be discussed with a focus on designing a cost-effective array that will maximize material usage, facilitate manufacturing and allow for depanelization. This course will cover fabrication drawings and the important information they should contain. 

After the course, a tour of PCB manufacturing plant, Multicircuits, is included in the Workshop!  This course was created for Process, Test & Design Engineers, PCB Layout Designers, Managers, Procurement and New Product Introduction Teams.  The course is highly recommended for anyone involved with designing, processing and ordering PCB.  The course content is geared to attendees ranging from the inexperienced to the wily veteran.  Please consider attending to learn, network, have some fun and go on the tour! 

Fees are $100 per Member / $150 Non Member
