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

3D Convergence of Multiboard PCB and IC Packaging Design

07/18/2018 | Bob Potock, Zuken
A new generation of 3D multiboard product-level design tools offer major improvements by managing multiboard placement in both 2D and 3D, and enabling co-design of the chip, package and board in a single environment. Multiboard design makes it possible to create and validate a design with any combination of system-on-chips (SOCs), packages, and PCBs as a complete system. Chip-package-board co-design enables designers to optimize routability via pin assignment and I/O placement to minimize layer counts between the package, chip and board. The new design methodology makes it possible to deliver more functional, higher performing and less expensive products to market in less time.

Dave Wiens Discusses Multi-board Design Techniques

07/09/2018 | Andy Shaughnessy, I-Connect007
For our multi-board design issue, I interviewed Dave Wiens, product marketing manager for Mentor, a Siemens business. We discussed how the multi-board design technique differs from laying out single boards, along with the planning, simulation and analysis processes required to design multi-board systems.

Paving the Way for 400Gb Ethernet and 5G

06/26/2018 | Chang Fei Yee, Keysight Technologies
This article briefly introduces the 4-level pulse amplitude modulation (PAM-4) and its application in 400 Gigabit Ethernet (400GbE), to support the booming data traffic volume in conjunction with the deployment of 5G mobile communications. Furthermore, this article also highlights the essential pre-layout effort from signal integrity perspective for physical (PHY) link design on a PCB, including material selection, transmission line design and channel simulation to support 56Gbps data rate that paves the way for seamless communication in 400GbE.
