SEC at the IPC

What you missed from Saturn during IPC APEX in Las Vegas.   


SEC was busy during this year's IPC APEX Expo conference and exhibition.


Therefore, we wanted to ensure that we got the word out to all those whom we missed connecting with during the event.

 LED Thermal Management


Two New LED Calculators on the way! 

We are currently developing two cutting-edge LED PCB Design calculators with Clemens Lasance.      


Thermal Resistance

Calculate your material requirements based on your total stackup starting with the LED itself and down through to the final heatsink.


Heat Spreading

This unique calculator will allow you to make advanced heat spreading calculations with relative ease--truly a one-of-kind for the industry.



Dissipating the heat away from the base

Yash expanded the the original '09 LED MCPCB webinar with this presentation that was recorded live in Irvine, CA at the IPC Technology Interchange Thermal Management last November and now archived on the IPC library(IPC Members Only).

Lead Free Resource Center

Webinars, latest information and more

The RoHS / Lead-Free PCB Resource Center contains information regarding RoHS compliance and the necessary requirements for specifying Pb-free circuit board materials and finishes. Here you will also find the latest Pb-free information, articles, presentations and fabrication notes.

In addition to the Lead Free Resource Center, Saturn also provides the following resources in our Technology Hub:  

Art's Kitchen

Asian Flavored Skirt Steak

from the kitchen of Leana Wood

Flank Steak can also be used in this recipe...but be sure to broil it a few minutes longer as it is slightly thicker than skirt steak, which is long and flat.



1 tree-inch piece ginger

2 large cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons dark-brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 

3 sticks cinnamon (optional)

1 small skirt steak (about 1lb)

1.4 cups dry sherry

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Salt and freshly-ground pepper

Roughly chopped cilantro leaves (optional) 



Step One

Peel half the ginger; finely grate to make 1 tablespoon. 
Thinly slice remaining half.
Scatter half-grated and sliced-ginger, garlic, brown sugar, cinnamon, and cinnamon sticks, if using in a non-reactive baking dish.
Cut steak against grain into three 6-inch pieces; place in dish.
Scatter with remaining dry ingredients.
Pour sherry, soy sauce, and olive oil over the steak.
Marinate, turning meat several times, for 30 minutes, or refrigerate several hours.

Step Three

Heat broiler.
Season steak with salt and pepper; transfer to broiler pan.
Broiler until brown just charred, about 4 minutes.
Turn; broil about 3 minutes for medium rare.
Transfer to cutting board.
Let rest 5 minutes.
Cut into thin strips.
Top with cilantro, if using: serve.

Published Thermal Conductivities Values: Facts or Fairy Tales?


By Clemens J. M. Lasance


Around 1980, when I joined the Heat Transfer Group at Philips CFT, my boss threw a piece of material on my desk and asked for its thermal conductivity. It took me a week digging in literature to discover that this was no easy question to answer, despite the simple mathematics behind a steady state measurement: k=q/∆T/A, with k the thermal conductivity, q the dissipation, ∆T the temperature difference across the test sample, and A the area. All items at the right hand side are easy to measure, so it seemed.
