28 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I DECEMBER 2019 Wow! I can't believe its December already. The IPC Designers Council Chapters had an- other very active year that was filled with great industry content from various industry events and chapter activities. From chapters that re- main very strong to an old legacy chapter being resurrected and a new chapter formed, local chapters have continued to be active in their respective regions. We finish 2019 by highlight- ing the Silicon Valley Chapter located in Cal- ifornia and the Research Triangle Park (RTP) Chapter located in North Carolina. Silicon Valley Chapter, California Chapter Leader: Bob McCreight The Silicon Valley Chapter held its final chap- ter meeting on October 24 in Milpitas, Califor- nia. Thanks to Sierra Circuits for recording the meeting and their complementary slides. Much appreciation goes out to Footprintku and Zuken for their roles in hosting and spon- soring the meeting. The combined team did a great job, and we look forward to working with them again for next year's Q4 meeting. Overall, we had 35 attendees. The venue was excellent and the lunch was quite enjoyable. The topic presented by Scott Nance was very informative and contained lots of great PCB design materi- al. I would also like to give a shout-out to Opti- mum Design Associates for their involvement. The next chapter meeting will be on February 13. More details will come in early 2020. Research Triangle Park (RTP) Chapter, North Carolina Chapter Leader: Tony Cosentino The RTP Chapter hosted PCB Carolina 2019 on November 13 at the North Carolina State University McKimmon Conference and Train- ing Center (Figure 1).
