40 DESIGN007 MAGAZINE I JULY 2020 able through IPC. At the very least, I hope you will embrace the philosophy that guides Carlos Plaza, IPC Education's director of education development, as you go about your daily life. When I talked with him for this article, he said, "The rapidly changing world of work makes lifelong learning essential to our personal and professional success. That is what drives me to action. Every day, I look forward to apply- ing empirically-tested insights into how peo- ple actually learn to create training programs that truly meet the needs of our constituents." Be like Carlos: wake up every day excited for what you can learn and the value it will add to your own life, your company, and the industry as a whole. Now, take another moment and listen to the breeze, your fan, or the hum of your overhead lights. Ask yourself, "What can I learn today?" If the answer involves brushing up on your layout skills or learning something new about via-in-pad construction or some other printed board design topic, then IPC can help you. Regardless of where you go or who helps you on your journey of continuing education, heed the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson: "Skill to do comes of doing; knowledge comes by eyes always open, and working hands; and there is no knowledge that is not power." DESIGN007 Patrick Crawford is the manager of design programs and related industry programs at IPC.

The latest release of vGPU enables a better user expe- rience and manageability needed for demanding work- loads like the recently debuted Omniverse AEC Experi- ence, which combines Omniverse, a real-time collabora- tion platform, with RTX Server and NVIDIA Quadro Virtual Workstation software for the data center. The reference design supports up to two virtual workstations on an NVIDIA Quadro RTX GPU, running multiple workloads such as collaborative, computer-aided design while also pro- viding real-time photorealistic rendering of the model. With Quadro vWS, an Omniverse-enabled virtual worksta- tion can be provisioned in minutes to new users, anywhere in the world. Users don't need specialized client hardware, just an internet-connected device, laptop or tablet, and data remains highly secured in the data center. New features in vGPU July 2020 help enterprise IT admins and cloud ser- vice providers streamline management, boosting their operational efficiency. (Source: NVIDIA) For many organizations, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a permanent shift in how their employees work. From now on, they'll have the option to collaborate at home or in the office. NVIDIA is giving these millions of professionals around the world a boost with a new version of our virtual GPU software, vGPU July 2020. The software adds support for more workloads and is loaded with features that improve operational efficiencies for IT administrators. GPU virtualization is key to offering everyone from designers to data scientists a flexible way to collaborate on projects that require advanced graphics and comput- ing power, wherever they are. Employee productivity was the primary concern among organizations addressing remote work due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to recent research by IDC. When the market intelligence firm interviewed NVIDIA cus- tomers using GPU-accel- erated virtual desktops, it found organizations with 500-1,000 users experienced a 13 percent increase in productivity, resulting in approximately more than $1 million in annual savings.
