April 2017 • The PCB Design Magazine 77 5 Zuken Partners with Nano Dimension to Develop Seamless Design to Manufacture for 3D Printing Zuken and Nano Dimension are working together to ad- vance the 3D printing user experience and prototype turnaround times. Nano Di- mension, a leader in electronic printing technologies, will take advantage of the support for implementing electronic technologies provided by Zuken's market-leading, native 3D, system-lev- el design solution, CR-8000 Design Force. 6 Catching up with Polar Instruments' Geoffrey Hazelett Product specialist Geoffrey Hazelett discusses some of the latest developments at Polar Instruments, including a new tool that will allow fabrica- tors to determine how cop- per roughness will affect the end-product. He also talks about Polar's upcoming eB- ook on signal integrity, soon to be published by I-Connect007. Talented young technologists like Geoffrey are the future of our industry. 7 Siemens Closes Mentor Graphics Acquisition With the recent closing of its acquisition of EDA software leader Mentor Graphics, Siemens sets out to underscore the significant customer value it en- visions for both electronic systems and IC design tools. Mentor is now part of Siemens' PLM soft- ware business, making the combined organization the world's leading supplier of industrial software used for product design, simulation, verification, testing and manufacturing. 8 New Functionality Improves Designer's Productivity One of the main de- tails lacking in today's PCB design software is the flow of imped- ance control from de- sign capture through to board fabrication. If the impedance of all the required technologies, used in the design, is determined up-front at the time of capture, the engineer's intent should be preserved and flow through to downstream tools. However, that scenario rarely happens. 9 IPC Designers Council Orange Co. Chapter Holding Lunch 'n' Learn April 19 The Orange Coun- ty Chapter of the IPC Designers Council is holding a Lunch 'n' Learn event on April 19 at JT Schmid's Restaurant & Brewery in Anaheim. This meeting features two speakers and takes place from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm in the Regan Room at JT Schmid's. Cost is $15 at the door to cover the cost of lunch. J Cadence's Zhen Mu Discusses Her Power-Aware Analysis Solution White Paper Zhen Mu, senior princi- pal product engineer with Cadence Design Systems, and Brad Griffin, prod- uct marketing director for Cadence, sits down with Andy Shaughnessy to dis- cuss Zhen's new white pa- per, "Power-Aware Analysis Solution."
