Below are some of the latest electronics manufacturing publications now available from Dynamix Technology.

 Proof of Design (POD)
The DFM/CE Book for Printed Circuit Boards, Assemblies and All Manner of Other Things Technical
- by Earl Moon

Revision 3 of this eBook (it comes on CD-Rom, in MS Word 97 format) provides more detailed supplier evaluation/qualification guidelines, checklists, procedures, and requirements.

It includes PCB/PCBA Operational information, Manufacturing Operations Procedures, Failure Analysis information, requirements, and details.

It has a complete section on Lean Manufacturing plus much more Design for Manufacture/Concurrent Engineering and other vital information for those needing/wishing/wanting/desiring to manage processes instead of reacting to results as poor quality and reliability.

Product without DFM/CE

Product with DFM/CE
FORWARD (advance or move positively in one direction or never move backward - or never do it over or never effect defect and have to correct it): This book is about doing it right the first time, on time, every time, at the lowest cost. This simply is done by managing processes instead of results.
  • Though this E-book focuses mostly on electronics, with printed circuitry at its core, all the principles apply to all applications whether telecommunications, automotive, medical, military, aerospace, or whatever product demanding quality and reliability.

  • This book is designed to be used any way one sees fit. if you need to use any information herein simply copy and paste it into your documents or processes.

Earl Moon (The MoonMan) is a professional mechanical engineer with a long history dedicated to the pcb and associated electronics industry. With a very extensive education and knowledge in design, process development, new product development, and manufacturing support, he has hands on experience concerning every phase of pcb fabrication and assembly. He has worked directly and consulted with some of the largest companies in the USA. He has over thirty years experience in the electronics industry in aerospace, military, and commercial environments. The MoonMan has worked and consulted in areas from designing very complex and high density interconnect systems to ensuring their acceptance by customers world-wide. He is deeply involved in multilayer printed circuitry and high reliability SMT assemblies. The MoonMan has written and lectured on every facet of the electronics packaging industry. He is one of the most outspoken advocates of design for manufacturing (DFM), and all it encompasses as design for test and cost, etc. As such he recognizes and teaches that DFM is not possible without concurrent engineering (CE). To this end, he has written this eBook.

 BGA & Fine Pitch Peripheral Interconnections: Handbook of Technology and Applications for Microelectronics/Electronics Manufacturing
Jennie Hwang
Febuary 1995
Dynamix Technology comment:
Perhaps the Lau is better on BGA, but Hwang certainly knows her stuff when it comes to soldering.

 Handbook of Printed Circuit Design, Manufacture, Components and Assembly

Giovanni Leonida
July 1981
Dynamix Technology comment:
Invaluable reference book for all aspects of the technology, despite its age. We believe that this, with the Wassink book (see below) is the best selling book ever from this publisher.
