PCB Carolina 2015 – Raleigh NC

By John McMillan

2015 was another record-breaking year at PCB Carolina, the premier PCB design and fabrication conference in the Southeastern U.S.


The show floor this year in the NC State University McKimmon Center was the biggest ever with 64 vendor tables (up from 57 in 2014) – all sold out by mid-September.

More than 700 registrants talked to industry vendors, attended 16 technical sessions, enjoyed LOTS of great food and won door prizes. Hats off to the RTP Chapter of the IPC Designer’s Council along with all of volunteers that deliver above and beyond at this event year after year!


Attendees crowded in to hear the keynote address by Nicholas Justice and John Muth from PowerAmerica. PowerAmerica is part of the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI) and is a $146 million dollar private-public partnership focused on advancing and accelerating the commercialization of wide-band-gap semiconductor power electronics.


Check out the PCB Carolina website for the full list of vendors in attendance and technical session that took place.
