July 2014 • The PCB Design Magazine 59 e Agilent Debuts ADS DDR4 Compliance Test Bench Agilent Technologies inc. has introduced Advanced Design system DDr4 Compliance Test Bench, which enables a complete workflow for DDr4 engineers, from simulation of a candidate design through measurement of the finished prototype. The solution is ideal for semiconductor companies developing DDr controller iP; those developing DrAM chips and DiMMs; and OEMs integrating the controller and DiMM into a system using PCB technology. f Streamlining PCB Design and Mfg Process for DIy Engineers "Fabstream offers the casual Diy user free compre- hensive, yet easy-to-use PCB design tools readily available and integrated with manufacturing," said rick Almeida, founder of Downstream Technolo- gies. "We wanted Fabstream to support those indi- viduals who are less experienced in PCB design and manufacturing by eliminating design pitfalls that can lead to problems getting a board produced." g Altium, In-Circuit Design Partner for Altium Designer Extensions Altium limited, in cooperation with in-Circuit De- sign Pty ltd. (iCD), has launched new extensions for Altium Designer for advanced stackup plan- ning and power distribution network analysis to bring comprehensive high-speed design capabili- ties to the mainstream market. h Embedded Component Meeting: Process Variations With the theme "PCB Design and Fabrication Pro- cess variations for Embedding Passive and Active Components," vern solberg's presentation will fo- cus on the six basic embedded component struc- ture designs described in iPC-7092. he will make his presentation at the upcoming Embedded Component Meeting in Biltmore santa Clara on september 10. i Intercept Expands to India with Tecnode Solutions intercept Technology inc. announces its newest authorized reseller, Tecnode solutions (P) ltd. Tec- node's primary goal is to expand its rF and mi- crowave solutions portfolio by selling intercept's PCB, rF, and hybrid design software applications throughout india. j Letter: Longing for Light Table, but Happy With CAD Tools "zuken has amazing simulation software, and the cheaper packages are certainly catching up," says reader steve knobel. "generally, with faster computers and ever-improving CAD soft- ware, life for PCB designers is good. There are days when i still long for the drawing board and light table, but the feeling doesn't last very long." PCBDesign007.com for the latest circuit design news— anywhere, anytime.
