Enics Invests in Zuken’s CR-8000 Software to Future-proof EMS


Reading time ( words)

Electronics manufacturing services (EMS) provider Enics has invested in CR-8000 Design Force, part of Zuken’s next generation product-centric design platform.

Enics chose CR-8000 as part of an ongoing investment program to ensure they can meet their customers’ future technical requirements and further reduce time-to-market. Enics is one of world’s largest EMS providers, working primarily in the energy, industrial automation, transportation, building automation and instrumentation sectors.

Patrik Modig, site manager for Enics Västerås says, “We aim to be the partner of choice for Industrial focused OEMs when they are looking for professional EMS solutions. With Zuken’s CR-8000 Design Force we have state-of-the-art technology to help us respond to the latest trends in the electronics industry. We also expect to see a remarkable boost in productivity due to a more streamlined process and tighter integration with simulation tools.”

Enics had used Zuken’s CR-5000 single-board PCB design software almost 10 years, during which time they have expanded significantly across Europe and Asia. Key factors that prompted their decision to migrate to CR-8000 include:

  • Full 3D virtual prototyping to allow early verification of mechanical constraints and perform DFM reviews; vital to meeting increased miniaturization trends.
  • Ability to import 3D mechanical models into an ECAD environment allowing 3D verification during the design process and collision prevention in manufactured prototypes.
  • Integrated environment for signal integrity, power integrity and electromagnetic interference checking.

Anders Ternström, Senior PCB Design Engineer at Enics, will speak about his experience incorporating CR-8000 Design Force into the Enics design flow at Zuken Innovation World 2015 UK, 30 September 2015, Leicester, UK. For more information and to register, visit: www.zuken.com/ziw-uk

PCB Cooling Strategies, Part 1

01/19/2018 | Bin Zhou, EDADOC
With the development of communication and IT industries and the ever-increasing demand for information analysis, many chip makers have racked their brains trying to provide customers with better technology, such as increased computing power and storage capacity of chips as well as diversifying their product offerings.

Streamlining Thermal Design of PCBs

01/10/2018 | Dr. John Parry, CEng, Mentor
When designing a PCB, thermal issues are often locked in at the point of selecting and laying out the chip package for the board. After that, only remedial actions are possible if the components are running too hot. Assumptions made about the uniformity of the airflow in these early design stages can mean a disaster for the commercial viability of a PCB if those assumptions are incorrect. A different approach is needed to improve reliability and to optimize board performance. Dr. John Parry of Mentor explains.

Mike Jouppi Discusses his Drive for Better Thermal Data

01/12/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCB Design007
If you mention thermal management in a group of PCB designers and design engineers, Mike Jouppi’s name usually pops up. Mike is an engineer and founder of the Thermal Management LLC consulting firm. He spent years updating IPC’s charts on current-carrying capacity, which had been unchanged since the 1950s. I recently caught up with Mike and asked him to give us his views on the state of thermal management, as well as the tools and standards related to thermal design.
