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

Managing Footprints With Integrated EDA Tools

02/23/2021 | Matt Walsh, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Electronics companies are always under great pressure to continually grow and innovate. In addition to navigating ever-accelerating design cycles, they must also address and overcome generational complexities associated with their products, the underlying components they use, and the human capital accountable for delivering on time and on budget. Electronics firms can ill afford the time and resource inefficiencies associated with manually correcting design errors, poor library data integrity, or other inconsistencies leading to missed deadlines or even costly re-spins.

A Library Management Cautionary Tale

02/12/2021 | Steven V. Chavez, CID+
The library management of footprints, land patterns, or cells—however you refer to them in your ecosystem—is one of the most critical items in the foundation of any PCB or CCA design. When I was asked to write an article on this topic, so many thoughts and experiences instantly flooded my mind. After 30+ years of designing PCBs throughout the industry, I have my share of experiences and stories about footprints. One particular experience stands out.

Best Practices: Footprint Design and CAD Library Management

02/09/2021 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
The I-Connect team spoke with Altium’s John Watson about the hurdles surrounding footprints and footprint design. John talks about how being proactive and improving the CAD library can better QC processes and help protect against footprint difficulties.
