THE "Right First Time Design" two-day workshop on advanced design for SMT presents a detailed look at proven generic design rules for dense, double-sided SMT design of multilayer PCBs.

The Australian Microelectronics Centre, in conjunction with In-Circuit Design Pty Ltd , is organising the workshop, which will be held at the Brisbane Technology Park and start on July 26, 2006.

The presenter has extensive experience with numerous CAD systems and the course material is non-application specific.

This course identifies the problems associated with leading-edge design and interactively presents a systematic approach for solving design problems.

Topics to be discussed include:

* Generic SMT design rules

* Designing for manufacturability

* EMI and high speed design.

This workshop is most suited to design personnel who are designing surface-mount boards with more than four layers at high clock speeds/rise times, but the principles can be applied to less complex assemblies of mixed technology.

The two-day workshop is aimed at design engineers, PCB designers, project leaders and QA supervisors.

What participants will learn:

* Generic design rules for dense, double-sided SMT design of multi-layer PCBs

* Generic SMT design rules, including a land pattern update for the IPC-7351 standard released in March 2005

* Designing for manufacturability

* CAD testability implementation issues

* CAD QA to meet AS/NZS ISO 9001

* Manufacturing data requirements accepted by US board manufacturers

* Generic multilayer PCB specifications for mixed-technology boards

* EMI reduction techniques for high-speed designs

* Interactive placement and routing techniques for dense SMT/BGA designs.
