62 The PCB Design Magazine • June 2017 Europe Ramps up Defense Spending as Bud- gets Rise on Heightened Threats Defense budgets across Europe will grow by 1.6% on average annually for the next five years, to reach $245 billion in total by 2021, according to new analysis released today by IHS Markit. Mentor FloTHERM XT Release Simulates Complex Geometries Quickly, Accurately Mentor, a Siemens business, has launched the newest release of the FloTHERM® XT electronics cooling software product with advanced thermal management capabilities. The award-winning Flo- THERM XT product is the industry's first integrated mechanical design automation (MDA) and elec- tronic design automation (EDA) electronics cool- ing solution. Bruce Mahler Discusses Ohmega's Resistive Material Technology Bruce Mahler, vice president of Ohmega Technolo- gies, sat down for an interview at DesignCon 2017. He discussed the company's latest embedded resis- tive materials, as well as some of the drivers and challenges in that segment of the materials industr y. Executive Agent for PCB and Electronic Interconnect Technology PrCB Trust Accreditation The DoD mandate for trust in the PrCB supply chain is mirrored in DoDI 5200.44, which states: "Employ protections that manage risk in the sup- ply chain for components or subcomponent prod- ucts and services (e.g., integrated circuits, FPGAs, PrCBs) when they are identifiable (to the supplier) as having a DoD end-use." Developments in the Defense and Protection Markets Markets and Markets reports the active protection system market is projected to grow from $2.84 bil- lion in 2016 to $4.15 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 6.50% during the forecast period. Several influ- encing factors are expected to drive this market during the forecast period. Innovating in the Technology of Stretchable PCBs Express Circuits, a long-established PCB fabricator in Coleshill, near Birmingham in the Midlands of England, with the benefit of associate companies focused on design and assembly, is recognised for its exemplary customer service and technical sup- port and innovative manufacturing solutions. American Standard Circuits Completes Asset Acquisition of Camtech Technologies The acquisition brings increased offshore capa- bilities to American Standard Circuits and demon- strates American Standard's continued commit- ment to helping clients with their most pressing business challenges, from prototype to high-vol- ume production. If It's My Data, I Can Do What I Want, Right? In the light of the new IoT philosophies that are rapidly becoming the expectation, the problem of flexibility versus risk is resolved on the lower level, as IoT establishes the transfer and availability of data everywhere without the need for "hacking" into internal system database structures. Global Smart Manufacturing Market: Players Need to Explore New Markets The global market for smart manufacturing is char- acterized by the presence of numerous compa- nies, making the landscape fragmented and highly competitive. The competition is being dictated by the demand for huge investments in infrastructure and development of technologies. Blackfox Program Trains Vets for Manufacturing Jobs It's harder than ever for managers in the PCB manufacturing industry to find qualified staff, with some reporting that positions are remaining open for months at a time. On the other hand, there are thousands of soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines transitioning out of the service each year and seek- ing good jobs. MilAero007 Highlights
