Raleigh, NC — The premier show for printed circuit board design and manufacturing in the Southeast, PCB Carolina Conference & Exhibition, returned to the McKimmon Center at NC State University on November 5 and what an eventful day it was!
The standing-room-only keynote address was delivered by Dr. Eric Bogatin whose talk entitled “The Future of Circuit Boards in the 28 Gbps Regime: Is the end in sight?” provided compelling insights on the decisions designers should make to increase the chances for success in their next high speed product design.
Exhibitor products ranged from printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturers, PCB test equipment makers, PCB design tool vendors, and design services bureaus. There was even one-stop shops to take PCB products from design conception to product delivery. I had the opportunity to talk with engineers and designers from industries ranging from lighting to computers, and from consumer electronics to Mil/Aero. Conversations included topics like high density, multilayered boards, blind and buried vias, Xpeditions 3D design and integrated flows.
I’ve enjoyed watching this events growth over the years. The exhibit floor once again was sold-out early and conference organizers jam packed this event with fun, food and technology for all. I can assure you no one left empty handed.
My hat’s off to the RTP Chapter of the IPC Designers Council for all their hard work and dedication for making this a successful event year after year!
