Abstract

To provide an efficient interconnection system, compromises must be made on materials and packing density within acceptable limits, and designers must understand electrical characteristics and the functioning of signal generating devices. High speed digital logic devices are analysed with special attention given to signal swings. Solutions to the problem of line reflection currents are suggested, and the decoupling process is explained. Board design is vitally important and the power and earth distribution contribute strongly towards its success or failure. Power distribution on double‐sided boards is examined, with a consideration of various arrangements of capacitors used for decoupling. After discussion of the effects of other tracks, it is evident that signal tracking lengths should be kept to a minimum, while line impedances are maximised. Guidelines for efficient tracking are provided and an explanation of the trackability factor of a PCB reveals power distribution past the ends of packages to be the most effective arrangement for achieving high packing densities. Double‐sided boards should be used where possible in preference to multilayers.

Abstract

The manufacture of flexi‐rigid multilayer boards poses a number of problems which are not met with in ordinary multilayer production or in the making of plain flexible circuits. Steps have to be taken to overcome the poor dimensional stability of thin polyimide foils during processing and to ensure that those portions of the assembly which need to be rigid are bonded whilst flexible portions are left unbonded other than for a cover coat. Pressure on cover coated flexible areas must be maintained during bonding without allowing resin to now over these areas, and finally the bonded unit must be profiled, often with superimposed flexible areas of different shapes. This article describes some of the techniques used by a leading manufacturer to overcome these problems. Several of the processes described are covered by patents held by Exacta Circuits Ltd. This article is an extract from a forthcoming book ‘Handbook of Multilayer Printed Circuits’ to be published at the end of the year by Electrochemical Publications Ltd., 8 Barns Street, Ayr, Scotland.

Abstract

The Institute will be much in evidence at Brighton again this year. We shall have a stand, in the same position as last year, and we shall also be strongly represented in the technical sessions with a series of talks which will not only explain the basic principles of circuit fabrication, but will also throw new light on old problems and contain much helpful advice, of a practical nature, which can be profitably applied when the delegates return to their daily tasks.

Abstract

These days it seems hard to pick up a magazine or go to a conference without finding an article or paper telling us in no uncertain terms what is going to happen in our industry. Sales of equipment and components ten years hence are quoted as if all the customer contracts are already signed, and we are told how we as an industry must make radical changes if we are to survive.

Abstract

Purpose

This study aims to investigate the dynamics of knowledge sharing in health care, exploring some of the factors that are more likely to influence the evolution of idea sharing and advice seeking in health care.

Design/methodology/approach

The authors engaged 50 pediatricians representing many subspecialties at a mid-size US children’s hospital using a social network survey to map and measure advice seeking and idea sharing networks. Through the application of Stochastic Actor-Oriented Models, the authors compared the structure of the two networks prior to a leadership program and eight weeks post conclusion.

Findings

The models indicate that health-care professionals carefully and intentionally choose with whom they share ideas and from whom to seek advice. The process is fluid, non-hierarchical and open to changing partners. Significant transitivity effects indicate that the processes of knowledge sharing can be supported by mediation and brokerage.

Originality/value

Hospital administrators can use this method to assess knowledge-sharing dynamics, design and evaluate professional development initiatives and promote new organizational structures that break down communication silos. This work contributes to the literature on knowledge sharing in health care by adopting a social network approach, going beyond the dyadic level and assessing the indirect influence of peers’ relationships on individual networks.

Abstract

Purpose

Inequality is an important organizational phenomenon. Scholars have argued that inequalities persistently dwell in the flow of our lives and have a lingering impact. Yet, despite such compelling evidence, research has overlooked how individuals make sense of the inequalities they face inside and outside the organizations. The purpose of this paper was to address these gaps and capture its complexity on individual lived experiences with inequalities.

Design/methodology/approach

The present study used Seidman's adapted 2-interview strategy to collect the data. The first interview placed the participant's life history at the center, allowing the participant to share their childhood and adulthood experiences with inequalities inside and outside the organizations. The second interview focused on the concrete details of the participant's present lived experience and their reflections on the meaning of their experiences. In total, the present study relied on 26 interviews with 13 participants.

Findings

Lived experiences provided an extended-time view and allowed the researcher to explore how study participants perceived, coped and were shaped by inequalities throughout their lives. In addition, the sense-making perspective offered a new lens to study inequalities. Findings underscore the racial, class and gendered dynamics within organizations supporting their intersectional impact and acknowledge the pre-existing societal norms that condition individual actions and choices.

Originality/value

The study presents an “engaged” view of inequality to highlight it as a cumulative and complex experience. The findings help us recognize that participants are immersed in their specific contexts to act, negotiate, empower and make decisions under real-life pressures. Overall, the study pushes the boundaries of inequality research beyond its current episodic treatment.

Abstract

INTERNEPCON 80 On Tuesday, October 14th, the ICT, in conjunction with the printed circuit group of the IMF, is holding a two hour technical session. The venue will be a Lecture Hall at the Brighton Centre and the meeting will commence at 6.00 p.m. The event will comprise a simple programme of three or four informal talks given by PC specialists on topical matters. John Scarlett is expected to give a discourse on practical design matters; Henry Manfield is expected to give us an insight into the subjects which will be covered by the papers of the Second World Convention next year in Munich, whilst Joe Radley will tell us about some interesting aspects of machine tool design as applied to the PC Industry.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this article is to draw attention to how harmful and inaccurate discourses pertaining to disaster responsibility is produced, the negative implications such narratives pose and the role of the media in the ways in which discourses about queerness and disaster are reported.

Design/methodology/approach

Throughout this paper, the authors detail examples of media reporting on discourses relating to people with diverse sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics (SOGIESC) being blamed and held responsible for disasters across the world. The authors examine the value of such reporting as well as describing the harm blame narratives have on queer people and communities.

Findings

There is little value in reporting on accounts of people publicly declaring that people with diverse SOGIESC are to blame for disaster. More sensitivity is needed around publishing on blame discourses pertaining to already marginalised communities.

Originality/value

This article contributes to the developing scholarship on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, agender, asexual and aromantic individuals, plus other gender identities and sexual orientations (LGBTQIA+/SOGIESC) and disasters by detailing the harm of blame discourses as well as drawing attention to how the media have a role to play in averting from unintentionally providing a platform for hate speech and ultimately enhancing prejudice against people with diverse SOGIESC.
