62 The PCB Design Magazine • March 2017 1 Kelly Dack and Mike Creeden: Are We in a PCB Design Renaissance? During IPC APEX EXPO, Technical Edi- tor Kelly Dack and San Diego PCB founder Mike Creeden discuss some of the trends they're seeing in the PCB design commu- nity, including a slight increase in young people becoming designers and more EEs doing design work. 2 Gary Ferrari Earns Dieter Bergman IPC Fellowship Award In recognition of his on- going leadership in devel- oping and promoting IPC standards on a global ba- sis, IPC has bestowed the Dieter Bergman IPC Fel- lowship Award upon Gary Ferrari of FTG Circuits. For more than four decades, Ferrari has donated countless hours to IPC and the PCB design community. 3 Exciting New Technology: Thermal Risk Management Two years ago, I entered into a collaboration with Dr. Jo- hannes Adam, from Leimen Germany. Johannes has writ- ten a software simulation tool called Thermal Risk Manage- ment (TRM). We used it to look at the thermal character- istics of PCB traces under a variety of conditions, and it is hard for me to contain my excitement and enthusiasm for what it does and what we learned about traces using it. 4 Altium Vault 3.0 Harnesses PCB Design Data to Unlock Engineering Innovation Altium has launched an all-new version of its PCB component and design data management solu- tion with Altium Vault 3.0. As a complement to their leading PCB design software Altium Designer 17, Altium Vault furthers the brand's commitment to fueling creativity by giving the engineer more control over their design data.
