Review from Lambert Schutters, General Manager,
"We need the right tools to create the best design for the intended purpose. This book is a great introduction and guide on how to approach the process holistically."
Review from Jan Pedersen, Director of Technology, NCAB Group
"The importance of total thermal resistance has been an eye opener for me from being focused on one material’s thermal conductivity to understanding the total thermal behavior of a material stackup."
Review from Binayak Shrestha, Senior Research Engineer at C-DOT
"The most important aspect in the whole design process is getting the stackup correct. This book is one such rare gem which consolidates all the information in one single place!"
Review from Gerry Partida, VP of Technology, Summit Interconnect
"Michael Gay’s book is a concise and detailed explanation of the critical materials that makes up a PCB. His thorough explanation will help any engineer, designer and fabricator understand the impact of the material selection in a PCB stackup. This book is truly a gift to the electronics industry and I thank him for sharing his knowledge with us."
Review from Joe O'Neil, Principal, OAA Ventures
"The Printed Circuit Assembler’s Guide to Solder Defects is an outstanding summary of the how’s and why’s of paste theory, defect causation and recommended best practices. This short read contains real world advice from the experts. I highly recommend it for anyone involved in the PCB Assembly process."
Review from Lee Ritchey, Founder and President, Speeding Edge
"Author Brad Griffin offers readers a very good explanation of system-level analysis of complex and high-speed electronic designs. I highly recommend this book for those who are getting started with the design of PCBs and systems that are used in data centers."
Review from Christopher St. Mars, Process Engineer, Intervala
"This book offers an accurate look at the aspects and challenges the electronics manufacturing industry faces with regards to SMT Inspection and its surrounding technology. In-depth insight on new and exciting true 3D inspection technology is provided, with a look into the future of leveraging big data management and autonomous manufacturing for a smarter factory."
Review from Marius Stepanescu, Technical Director, ICCO EMT
"The Printed Circuit Assembler's Guide to... Smart Data explains the role of data acquisition and analytics in Industry 4.0. This book provides a very good description of the main challenges of collecting and handling smart data and analyzing it in the proper way."
Review from Dan Beaulieu, President, DB Management Group
"For those who are, shall we say, 'less technical' than others, it’s refreshing—not to mention face-saving, at times—to be able to understand terms like insulated metal-clad PCBs (IMPCBs), metal-clad PCBs (MCPCBs) and mixed-technology PCBs."
Review from Mike Cummings, Technical Director, TSI
"Well-written and easy to follow, this dedicated book focuses on the importance of cleaning and decontamination of electronic circuits before application. This topic is timely and important, considering the increasing importance of high-reliability electronics, security, and safety in an increasingly connected world.
Review from Farid Anani, VP of Operations, Computrol Inc.
"This book is a must-read for those embarking on their IIoT journey; it provides a very accurate description of preparation requirements and risks to consider and avoid, not just technologically, but also organizationally."
Review from Kelly Dack, CIT, CID+ PCB Designer, Instructor & Manufacturing Liaison
"This book explains how information embedded in a PCB design layout database can be leveraged to efficiently and dynamically output more accurate PCB design documentation."
Review from John R. Watson, Legrand North America
"At a time when electronics are not just taking small steps but rather large leaps forward, this is an appropriate book for anyone working with PCB design. With countless and ever-changing steps involved in every design, it presents a clear understanding of the process. This book will be the go-to reference for all of our designers at Legrand North America."
Review from Alex Stepinski, vice president, GreenSource Fabrication
"Happy takes a textbook-style approach using easy-to-follow language. He provides step-by-step points for the DIYer, especially for making your own chemistry controllers, while providing examples from his past experiences.
Review from Kelly Dack, CID+, CIT, EPTAC Corporation
"Mark Thompson is not afraid to ask for what he needs from a customer to start a job with the end in sight. In fact, he does the industry one better in this book by telling you what a PCB fabricator needs to get the complex job done right. Much appreciated!
Review from Raiyo Aspandiar, Ph.D., Senior Engineer, Intel Corporation
"This book does a good job of distilling out the chaff and focusing on the most relevant, valuable information available, including main drivers for the current worldwide interest in low-temperature soldering, the history of solder paste alloys and flux developments, as well as various applications for these materials."
Review from Alun Morgan, Chairman, EIPC
" 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."
Review from Mike Carano, VP of technology and business development at RBP Chemical Technology
"The definitive guide to navigating the unique challenges one faces
when fabricating RF printed circuit boards."
Review from Eric Bogatin
"The Printed Circuit Designer’s Guide to… Power Integrity by Example from Mentor, A Siemens Business, explores the specific problem of via-to-via coupling through a cavity starting from the ground floor."
Review from Stephen Las Marias, Managing Editor, SMT Magazine
"To those looking to know more about conformal coatings—from fundamentals and testing, to industry standards and best practices—this micro eBook is the best starting point. Not only does this eBook provide the most important bits of information, but it also presents case studies to help you create successful conformal coating strategies for your applications."
