Reading time ( words)

DesignCon, the premier conference for chip, board and systems design engineers in the high-speed communications and semiconductor communities, today announced the winners of the Best Paper Awards from the blockbuster 2015 program. Recognizing outstanding contributions to the educational goals of the DesignCon program, the awards serve to acknowledge the authors as leading practitioners in semiconductor and electronic design. DesignCon's 20th anniversary event was held January 27-30 in Santa Clara, CA. To view the full list of winners, visit: ubm.io/DC15PaperWinners.

Papers were judged on merit as well as presentation quality during DesignCon 2015. All papers are reviewed for originality, relevance, impact and quality by the DesignCon Technical Program Committee, comprised of leading experts from all levels of the electronic design space – chip, board, package and system. Presentation quality is judged based on audience feedback collected at DesignCon. The awards were divided into four categories: Modeling & Simulation, High-Speed Signal Design, Power Integrity & Signal Integrity, and Test & Measurement.

Zuken Teams With Nano Dimension for 3D Printing Design Flow

11/22/2017 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCB Design007
At PCB West, Zuken shared a booth with Nano Dimension. Zuken has been working with Nano Dimension for some time, and adding support for 3D printing and nanotechnology to its design tool platforms. I sat down with Zuken’s Humair Mandavia and Nano Dimension’s Simon Fried to learn more about this alliance, and to find out more about this odd-looking box being demonstrated in Zuken’s booth.

Nine Dot Connects: Good Design Instruction is a True Value-Add

11/09/2017 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCBDesign007
Nine Dot Connects has certainly blazed an interesting trail. The company started out as an Altium reseller, but in less than a decade, Nine Dot Connects has also become a design service bureau and a provider of PCB design instruction, training, and consulting services. I recently interviewed Paul Taubman, technical services director for Nine Dot Connects. We discussed the company’s expansion from VAR to service bureau and content provider, and the changing landscape of PCB design instruction.

AltiumLive Summit—Munich, Germany, Part 2

11/13/2017 | Pete Starkey, I-Connect007
Pete Starkey continues with his review of the AltiumLive PCB Design Summit held recently in Munich, Germany. The second day commenced with a new product launch. “Working together is hard” it read on the screen. Statistics indicated that 33% of new products were late getting to market, of which 28% were late due to insufficient collaboration, and up to 50% of potential revenue could be lost through being late to market. Then the screen read “NEXUS makes it easy!”
