Zuken is pleased to announce Admiral Ray Smith as Keynote speaker for Zuken Innovation World (ZIW) 2015 Americas. Zuken’s annual user and technology conference will be held on June 1-3 at the Coronado Island Marriott Resort & Spa, San Diego, California.

A Navy SEAL for 31 years, Admiral Ray Smith achieved extraordinary success through focused, participatory leadership; notably during a four-year tenure as Commander of the 2,300-man SEAL force. Smith will draw on these experiences to speak on: “Leadership, Teamwork and Innovation in High Stress Environments”.  

Amy Clements, ZIW Conference Manager said: “We’ve had a huge response so far from attendees, speakers and exhibitors. With more customers and partners than ever participating, this year’s event will offer an exceptional lineup of technology and innovation topics. The conference’s beautiful resort location on Coronado Island is also proving to be a draw!”

This year’s event will see an outstanding speaker lineup of customers, partners and technology pundits from companies including Ansys, Continental Automotive, Qualcomm Technologies, XJTAG and more.

As a user and technology conference, the sessions will cover both Zuken related topics as well as a variety of industry topics that include: EDA of the Future – Who’s Flying the Plane?; A Multistage “Power Integrity Surgery” for Designing Complex Automotive Electronic Control Units; 3D Multi-board Product-centric Design; and E3.cable – From Design To Field Diagnostics. Presentations will be delivered by customers, technologists, partners and Zuken engineering experts.

Networking is a pillar of Zuken Innovation World and one of the main benefits of attending the conference. There will be numerous networking opportunities throughout the event, including a one-of-a-kind dining experience aboard the USS Midway, the United States' longest-serving aircraft carrier of the 20th century.

Hansel Frasier, Continental Automotive, commented: “I enjoyed the conference and meeting all the Zuken presenters. The location was first class…and our hosts were right on point; they were creative and full of energy,” following a previous ZIW Americas event.

IEEE’s Romanian SIITME Show a Success

01/09/2018 | Joe Fjelstad, Verdant Electronics
The 23rd annual IEEE International Symposium for Design and Technology in Electronic Packaging (SIITME) was held in Constanta, Romania, in October 2017. It attracted more than 190 participants from Romania, and 13 other counties. While there might be some who question the suitability of Romania as a venue for such a conference, the country has a long technological history and has produced some top innovators and pioneers in aviation including Aurel Vlaicu, Traian Vuia, Henri Coanda, who prototyped an early jet aircraft in 1910.

The Impact of HDI on PCB Power Distribution

12/27/2017 | Craig Armenti, Mentor
A key aspect of HDI technology is the use of microvias. For reference, the IPC HDI Design Committee has identified microvias as any hole equal to or less than 150 microns. Multiple types of HDI stack-ups associated with blind and buried microvias can be used to meet the density and cost requirements for today’s products. Design teams should develop stack-ups in conjunction with the fabricator to minimize cost and meet signal integrity requirements.

Embedded Technology: A Useful Tool in Freedom CAD’s Toolbox
