At work I'm assigned to two projects at the moment. Somehow both have managed to grind to a halt with no billable hours. I hate this kind of crap. I have asked for more work, so naturally I will get the new work and then all three projects will go into emergency mode.

The ancient, rather creaky PCB layout software crashes when a screensaver locks the screen and asks for a password. Stupid software.

PCB program? by Pasofol (2.00 / 0) #1 Mon Jun 12, 2006 at 10:11:21 PM EST
Printed Circuit Board?
What program you using Orcad, Pads powerpcb, other?

Used powerpcb just because school had license for it, tried orcad but didnt have the energy needed to learn everything.

Yeah, circuit board by dn (2.00 / 0) #2 Tue Jun 13, 2006 at 09:20:15 AM EST
It's an elderly version of Orcad, designed for Windows 95/NT. I'm actually surprised that it works as well as it does.

I'd prefer Altium (formerly known as Protel). We were actually going to get it in the first place, but at the time it had a few killer bugs.

So what by Pasofol (2.00 / 0) #3 Tue Jun 13, 2006 at 09:55:05 AM EST
do you do exactly, what kind of pcb designs, just designs or manufacturing aswell.

Sorry for the bother it's just my area of interest.
Currently working as smt operator, manufacturing a bitch of a board.

I'm a design engineer by dn (2.00 / 0) #4 Wed Jun 14, 2006 at 07:46:09 PM EST
My latest board was designed especially to torture whoever assembles it. ;-) It has 600 components, on both sides of the board, with a bunch of those fine-pitch 0805 resistor networks. Yeah, I know, the part count did get rather out of hand.

LOL, by Pasofol (2.00 / 0) #5 Thu Jun 15, 2006 at 03:34:00 AM EST
you might be glad to hear, my assembly has 2903 components of smt alone.  I think the size is 49cm by 48.7cm so something at least that's what the machine is set to.  It also has several through hole, for pci, agp, and other connects like ethernet but I'm just dealing with the smt part. 
It's even got 9 BGAs, 4 of them are micro.  Countless fine pitch QFP, SOICs so on but they can be reworked easily.  And the bitches refused to put silkscreen.  The lady who does rework on our line is the best I've every seen.  Fast and even has quality behind it.  Her talent is priceless and impossible to replace but of course few appreciate it.  So the position is under paid, and if there's rework of course it's sent to her first.
