The same can be said for high- frequency circuit materials, which are also thought of as low-loss mate- rials. However, there is a definite gray area that can muddy the waters when a designer is weighing a possible decision to switch from FR-4 to low-loss materials. 7 Samtec Releases Over 100,000 New Models on SnapEDA E With this new collabora- tion, designers can now easily discover, down- load, and design with over 100,000 ready-to-use Samtec connector mod- els, helping accelerate the design process. The new models include USB, card edge, board-to-board, headers, and RF coaxial connectors. 8 Version 2.8 of Ucamco's Free Reference Gerber Viewer Now Available E "For version 2.8 of the Reference Gerber Viewer our focus was ease of use and especially ease of learning.

The company will be covering a wide range of topics from Silicon Expert to E3.series MCAD co-design.
