July 2017 • The PCB Design Magazine 103 5 Zuken Improves Team Communication and High-Speed Design Support with CADSTAR 18 The latest version of its CADSTAR desktop PCB design software also supports indus- try requirements for high-speed design, and includes across-the-board performance enhancements and ease-of-use fea- tures. One highlight is developments in the indus- try-leading Activ-45 router. 6 PCB Design in the Age of IoT From the early days of printed circuit boards, the electron- ics industry has made huge strides in board materials, cop- per printing methods, min- iaturization, rigid-flex, ELIC, EDA, and much more. And in 2017, we are poised to shift from evolution to revolution, driven by the idea of the Internet of Things. 7 Romania's PCB Design Students Compete at TIE 2017 The 26th Inter- connection Tech- niques in Elec- tronics (TIE) show was held recently at the Gheorghe Asachi Technical University in Iasi, Romaina. This convention for the Romanian electronic packaging community included a series of actions designed to draw smart young students to the electronics industry, which is clearly growing. 8 Printed Circuit Broker Elmatica Encourage Development of New Language Elmatica is current- ly taking charge in developing a new language for PCB fabrication data. The development of the language will be by an independent international task group with members from the entire supply chain. If the in- dustry is up for the challenge, the result can be both cost-efficient and a vital time saver in pro- duction. 9 Stella Corporation Implements Ucamco's Gerber X2 Input and Output Japanese PCB software company Stella Corpo- ration has completed its support for Gerber X2 in Stella Vision. The output has been fully verified by Ucamco, who confirm it conforms to the current X2 specification. J Launching a New PCB Design Curriculum in Serbia "You don't need to know how to manually solder elec- trical parts or how to design printed circuit boards," our professor lectured. "It is im- portant that you understand the formula for charge carrier currents in a p-n junction." At my first job, I was soon de- signing PCBs, and no one ever asked me about charge carriers and p-n junctions. PCBDesign007.com for the latest circuit design news and information—anywhere, anytime.
