86 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I FEBRUARY 2022 Interview by the I-Connect007 Editorial Team e I-Connect007 Editorial Team spoke with Kris Moyer, a longtime PCB designer who has just joined IPC's Education Foundation. Kris was one of the judges and creators of the IPC Design competition that culminated at IPC APEX EXPO, and he was eager to discuss his new job and the cutting-edge technology he's seen lately, including additive, flex, and rigid- flex circuits. Barry Matties: Kris, what's your role at the IPC? Kris Moyer: I'm on the Education Foundation. I'm actually the instructor who teaches all the printed circuit board design courses at IPC. Matties: Fantastic. And when you're teaching the design courses, who are your students. Moyer: Typically, it's all levels of profession- als already in industry. Everywhere I've had students who are fresh out of college who got a job, and they said, "Hey, you need to learn this, go take it," to folks who have been in the industry 30 or 40 years and want to expand their knowledge. Basically, it's for anybody in the industry who's working on printed circuit board design and wants to expand their knowl- edge based on the IPC standards, or just other aspects of board design they might not have been exposed to. Matties: Doing your program, then, one is learning what the latest trends and demands are for designers. Moyer: Latest trends, demands, and the latest and greatest IPC standards. It's the latest revi- sion of all the IPC standards, so you're up to date with the latest requirements, standards, methodologies, and so on. Kris Moyer Discusses New IPC Design Role Kris Moyer
