Authors:

Clyde F. Coombs, Jr. joined Hewlett-Packard in 1959, where he developed the plated-through-hole process that became the basis for printed circuit production for the next 40+ years. He was the editor-in-chief of all six previous editions of Printed Circuits Handbook.

Happy T. Holden is the retired director of electronics engineering and innovations at Gentex Corporation, and has worked with printed circuits in various capacities since 1970. Previously, he was the CTO for Foxconn's MIP Business Group (supplier of mechanical components, flexible circuits, and rigid PCBs), a senior PCB technologist for Mentor Graphics' System Design Division, and an advanced technology manager at Westwood Associates (Nan Ya PCB) and Merix Corporation, and he worked for Hewlett-Packard for 28 years in various engineering and marketing roles.
