We do our best around here to support and help the pcb designer.  Gently suggesting things they can do to assure a perfect outcome for their new designs or latest X7 revision.

Recently I attended an IPC seminar held by Mike Creeden from San Diego PCBS on the subject of coordinating design activity with your PCB manufacturer….before you start or shortly after you start a new design.

His company does nothing but designs, and his role on the IPC Design Council is to educate and support the PCB layout community.  Since our role is building what you design, we are different sides of the same (coin) PCB.

I was so impressed with the thoroughness, insights, and practical suggestions, that I asked him if We could post the presentation.  See link below.  Feel free to comment through our web front page.
